Ranking the SEC after Week 13
Well, the regular season is over. Aside from three teams (yeah, South Carolina is playing Akron this weekend), they’re done until bowl season. So I guess we should know where everybody stands. Oh, and YOU’LL NEVER GUESS WHERE I HAVE AUBURN.
1. Alabama (12-0)
The Tide looked beatable for a half and then the incessant bombs started connecting.
Last week: ranked #1, beat Auburn 52-21
2. Georgia (11-1)
The Bulldogs are playing their best at the right time, but it likely won’t matter.
Last week: ranked #2, beat Georgia Tech 45-21
3. LSU (9-3)
Who is the 3rd best team in the SEC? LSU has the better record, but they just lost to Texas A&M. But it was 7 overtimes, so that doesn’t really count. They also sorta got hosed on some calls. Wait, LSU did? Amazing.
Last week: ranked #3, lost to Texas A&M 74-72
4. Texas A&M (8-4)
Last week: ranked #5, beat LSU 74-72
5. Mississippi State (8-4)
I do not think Mississippi State is better than Auburn, despite that win a while back, but I’m trying to be an adult.
Last week: ranked #6, beat Ole Miss 35-3
6. Auburn (7-5)
See above. Auburn is also better than Texas A&M, but again, I’m trying to be an adult.
Last week: ranked #4, lost at Alabama 52-21
7. Kentucky (9-3)
The Wildcats whooped Louisville, as they should, but put them in the SEC West, and they are more like 3-9 than 9-3.
Last week: ranked #7, beat Louisville 56-10
8. Missouri (8-4)
Missouri turned it on at the end of the season…. against Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Arkansas.
Last week: ranked #8, beat Arkansas 38-0
9. Florida (9-3)
Florida is not in the top half of the SEC, yet are somehow Top 10 in the nation. They got beaten by Missouri at home by 21 just a few weeks ago.
Last week: ranked #9, beat Florida State 41-14
10. South Carolina (6-5)
The Gamecocks can score, but they just can’t really stop anybody else from scoring. Jake Bentley can ball, though.
Last week: ranked #10, lost at Clemson 56-35
12. Vanderbilt (6-6)
Last week: ranked #12, beat Tennessee 38-13
11. Tennessee (5-7)
Tennessee not back. Tennessee had career day against 3-turnover Auburn in October.
Last week: ranked #11, lost to Vanderbilt 38-13
13. Ole Miss (5-7)
I thought the Rebels would put up more of a fight against Mississippi State. No, I don’t mean THAT kind of fight.
Last week: ranked #13, lost to Mississippi State 35-3
14. Arkansas (2-10)
Welp. There’s always next year.
Last week: ranked #13, lost at Missouri 38-0
