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)

See above.

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)

I’m surprised.

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
