SEC Rankings, Week 8: After running over first seven opponents, Georiga gets a rest this weekend | LSU – New Orleans, Louisiana

SEC power ranking

There was a full slate of seven conference games last Saturday, but there wasn’t much movement in the weekly SEC power rankings. Similarly, there may not be a big change this week with just four league games and one unconference game. Of course, Georgia will remain number one on the opening day ahead of its confrontation with Florida in Jacksonville next week. The bulldog remained in the lead by overwhelming the previously undefeated Kentucky, while second-placed Alabama returned to track when it defeated Mississippi. The biggest winners last weekend were LSU and Auburn. They went out on the road and took care of the Arkansas team, which declined rapidly in October with the blazing momentum of September. When Ed Orgeron and the school surprised Florida before receiving news that they would break up later this season, LSU jumped four spots to seventh place and Auburn climbed from three to six. With five schools open this week, the closest to the big game is Ole Miss’s LSU, but better than nothing. Enjoy as usual.

1. Georgia

record: 7-0, 5-0 SEC

PRV. Rank: 1

this week: Opening date

TV set: NA

line: NA

story: After slicing the first seven enemies like a hot knife through butter, Georgia takes a break. Perhaps it should be labeled a break for anyone planning to meet the Bulldogs next month or so. After being very dominant in the first seven games, Georgia probably doesn’t want to slow down — especially in the next Florida.

2. Alabama

record: 6-1 and 3-1 SEC

PRV. Rank: 2

this week: Against Tennessee, Saturday at 6pm

TV set: ESPN

line: Alabama up to 25 years old

story: As expected, Alabama has shaken off overtime losses to Texas A & M by crushing Mississippi. Tide isn’t a team that sits down and feels sorry for himself, as he’s always in the next game. In this case, the state was nothing more than a speed bump, so it was nothing. Tennessee may be the same.

3. OLE MISS

record: 4-1 and 2-1 SEC

PRV. Rank: Four

this week: Against LSU, Saturday 2:30 pm

TV set: CBS

line: Oremis 9½

story: Ole Miss has just been acquired in the last two weeks. Since falling to Alabama, the rebels have defeated Arkansas and Razorbucks tried to win with all zeros on the clock but failed and had to hold his breath at the end of the wild game with Tennessee. .. Lane Kiffin may be concerned about the invasion of LSU.

4. TEXAS A & M

record: 5-2, 2-2 seconds

PRV. Rank: Five

this week: Saturday against South Carolina at 6:30 pm

TV set: SEC network

line: Texas A & M by 20½

story: Zimbo Fisher’s team took a breather after a fierce victory at the time-no. 1 Alabama. When South Carolina arrives after taking care of Missouri, the next step shouldn’t be too difficult. That brave season victory over Alabama will be a bowl game that you’ll be able to enjoy for a long time if they get great results.

5. Kentucky

record: 6-1 and 4-1 SEC

PRV. Rank: 3

this week: Opening date

TV set: NA

line: NA

story: Kentucky played against No. 1 in Georgia last week, but Wildcats can never feel bad about falling into a bulldog. Nevertheless, it was still a pretty good early run of the season and certainly historic. But they get the chance to immerse it all before returning to the job at hand.

6. AUBURN

record: 5-2, 2-1 seconds

PRV. Rank: 9

this week: Opening date

TV set: NA

line: NA

story: Auburn has been a team up and down since that horror of Georgia a few weeks ago. I had to dig deeper to get through the LSU and then lost to Georgia, which is not shameful either. However, defeating the once 4-0 Arkansas team held the clutch in a tough end-of-season stretch staring at them head-on.

7. LSU

record: 4-3, 2-2 seconds

PRV. Rank: 11

this week: Saturday at 2:30 pm in Oremis

TV set: CBS

line: Oremis 9½

story: Outside the LSU Football Ops building, there wasn’t much hope that the LSU would come back from a terrible, terrible loss in Kentucky. But, as Harm Edwards has said many times, “this is why you play the game.” Sure, Florida was as surprised as everyone else, but it would be sweeter to knock off Oremis.

8. Florida

record: 4-3, 2-3 seconds

PRV. Rank: 6

this week: Opening date

TV set: NA

line: NA

story: In Florida’s final match, there was no way to prepare for a date with the country’s No. 1 team in a week. But at least the Gators have time to understand what went wrong and work on them to defeat the bulldog. No matter when and where they face the bulldog, it’s not an easy task.

9. Arkansas

record: 4-3, 1-3 seconds

PRV. Rank: 7

this week: vs. Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Saturday 11am

TV set: SEC network

line: No line

story: Arkansas was rolling just a few weeks ago. When Razorbucks sent Texas A & M, they had all the confidence in the world. Then happened to Olemis, Georgia and Auburn, and Arkansas was no longer his early darling of the season. Again, they shouldn’t bother with those losses, but that’s not surprising.

10. Mississippi

record: 3-3, 1-2 seconds

PRV. Rank: 8

this week: Vanderbild, Saturday at 3:00 pm

TV set: SEC network

line: Mississippi by 20½

story: Like Auburn, LSU has another up-down team that lost its head scratcher and defeated Texas A & M on the road. We need to see if the beatdown we got from Alabama last week is a future issue. But in the meantime, the bulldog is very likely to get over it against Vandy.

11. Tennessee

record: 4-3, 2-2 seconds

PRV. Rank: Ten

this week: Saturday at 6 pm in Alabama

TV set: ESPN

line: Alabama up to 25 years old

story: Given how Tennessee ended the match against Olemis this week, it’s probably good to be on the road. Despite the loss, it was a terrible end with debris on the sidelines and the field. But the good news is that they are out, but the bad news is that Vols is facing the Alabama team in a rival game.

12. South Carolina

record: 4-3, 1-3 seconds

PRV. Rank: 13

this week: Texas A & M, Saturday 6:30 pm

TV set: SEC network

line: Texas A & M by 20½

story: With an explosive defeat in Georgia following a close call to Kentucky, South Carolina’s last need was to lose to the basement-dwelling Vanderbilt. The gamecock was on the ropes before the last-minute touchdown finally gave coach Shane Beamer his first SEC victory in the first year. The problem is that another challenge awaits.

13. Missouri

record: 3-4, 0-3 SEC

PRV. Rank: 12

this week: Opening date

TV set: NA

line: NA

story: Missouri is one of two SEC teams that haven’t won the conference. The other is Vanderbiklt, so things don’t go well with CoMo. After defeating Alabama, the Tigers suffered the misfortune of encountering Texas A & M with new confidence. So without the A & M hangover, it was predictable.

14. Vanderbilt

record: 2-5, 0-3 seconds

PRV. Rank: 14

this week: Saturday, Mississippi, 3:00 pm

TV set: SEC network

line: Mississippi by 20½

story: Vanderbilt is recovering from three consecutive SEC losses. It was tough as I saw South Carolina head-on until Gamecocks recorded a winning touchdown in the last moment. Mississippi is coming to Nashville as a favorite with over 20 points, so this week won’t be any easier.
