SEC Power Rankings: Rebels Rock the Vaught


Ole Miss took out its Arkansas frustration with a 38-17 victory over LSU, setting up a major confrontation with the 8-3 Mississippi State Bulldogs.

It’s been 49 years since LSU fans witnessed three consecutive double digit losses. The Tiger season is suddenly in free fall despite owning a highly respectable 7-3 worksheet.

Alabama and Florida both advanced to 10-1 with victories over non-conference lightweights (AL defeated Charleston Southern 56-6 while the Gators struggled in OT to defeat Florida Atlantic 20-14). Florida is the weakest 10-1 team in recent memory and must now face FSU and probably Alabama to end the season. A 10-3 Florida team finishing with back-to-back losses will not be appealing to most bowls.

Also around the league, 8-3 Texas A&M defeated Vandy in Nashville 25-0 while Georgia, another 8-3 team, squeaked by Georgia Southern 23-17. Tennessee won on the road at Missouri 19-8. Auburn trounced Idaho 56-34 becoming bowl eligible. Kentucky overwhelmed Charlotte 58-10 keeping their bowl hopes stayin’ alive. South Carolina’s nightmarish season added another chapter with a 23-22 loss to the Citadel.

In the wildest game of the weekend Mississippi State ended Arkansas’ magical mystery tour in Fayetteville 51-50 dropping the Hogs’ season record to 6-5. The Hogs scored 28 unanswered points, but could not contain the State passing attack. In all probability Arkansas will finish 7-5 while MSU will be playing for much higher stakes now as the Egg Bowl awaits!

The bowl forecast is still quite volatile, however here’s how the crystal ball is projecting the SEC participation as of right now:

  • Alabama: Final Four Playoff
  • Florida: Sugar
  • Ole Miss: Citrus or Outback
  • Mississippi State: Citrus or Outback
  • Texas A&M: Texas
  • Georgia: TaxSlayer
  • LSU: Music City
  • Tennessee: Belk
  • Auburn: Birmingham
  • Arkansas: Liberty

    Vanderbilt and South Carolina are ineligible. Missouri and Kentucky are doubtful. All four are SEC East teams.
