Our SEC Power Poll after Three Months has the Tide Rolling

Bow to your new leaders, who are the same as your old leaders.

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Surprise! Alabama's the best team in the SEC again! Here's how we rank the conference from No. 1 all the way down to No. 14.

  1. Alabama Crimson Tide - Meet your new No. 1, the same as your old No. 1. Alabama's defense isn't even to its final form.
  2. Mississippi St. Bulldogs - If you can stop the Bulldogs on first down, then their offense becomes significantly less effective.
  3. Georgia Bulldogs - What's really impressive is how well Georgia's defense played against Auburn last weekend.
  4. Ole Miss Rebels - A bye week is either going to do this team wonders or cost them the game against Arkansas.
  5. Missouri Tigers - Quick, how many wins does Missouri have right now? If you said "uh, five or six or something" then you're like most SEC fans. This is the most forgettable 8-2 team this season.
  6. Auburn Tigers - Really, you could put Auburn ahead of Mizzou, even though they're now a three-loss team. They've still looked much better.
  7. LSU Tigers - Don't try to make any sense of this LSU team. It's just a waste of time.
  8. South Carolina Gamecocks - Same goes for these guys.
  9. Texas A&M Aggies - And maybe these guys? Honestly, what the hell's going on anymore?
  10. Arkansas Razorbacks - You had to think one was going to bounce their way. Now, with their win over LSU, we finally have an illogical loop of SEC West wins: Arkansas > LSU > Ole Miss > Alabama > Mississippi State > Texas A&M > Auburn > Arkansas.
  11. Florida Gators - More like Mus-CHUMP imo
  12. Tennessee Volunteers - At least they'll beat Vanderbilt.
  13. Kentucky Wildcats - One of the bigger SEC surprises is that this team is probably not going to be bowl eligible.
  14. Vanderbilt Commodores - Now, that this team isn't though... That's not a shocker.
