SEC Rankings Week 9: With a slate lacking huge games, LSU vs. Arkansas draws top billing | LSU – New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans, Louisiana 2020-11-19 23:00:00 –

SEC power ranking

After a very light week when only three games were played, the SEC will return to near full speed and this weekend will be near full speed. There was only one postponement at the 5th Texas A & M, which was supposed to host Olemis, with six games planned, but in this crazy season, two teams with a winning record in the six-game slate Features matches are not included. At least what it is. The closest to the big game is the contest between 2-3LSU and 3-4 Arkansas. It’s not a high stakes top 10 matchup like Alabama-Georgia or Georgia-Florida earlier this season, but both need a win. LSU wants to return to .500 after a two-week furlough following Auburn’s 48-11 thrashing. Meanwhile, Arkansas is trying to do the same after stealing £ 63-35 from 6 Florida last week. After that, Auburn is one of only five SEC teams with a winning record, hosting the Tennessee team that dropped four games in a row. Alabama also took first place on the line for the first time when hosting Kentucky.

1. Alabama

Record: 6-0

PRV. Rank: 1

this week: vs. Kentucky, Saturday at 3pm

TV set: SEC network

line: Alabama up to 30 years old

story: Alabama topped the national poll on the opening day and took the lead while sitting at home after the LSU match was postponed. Crimson Tide seeks to protect its ranking from the weak determined by Tuscaloosa. That shouldn’t be a problem at all, but it’s still 2020.

2. TEXAS A & M

Record: 5-1

PRV. Rank: 2

this week: vs. Oremis, ppd.

TV set: Not applicable

line: Not applicable

story: Texas A & M is on track with only one loss in Alabama over a month ago. But that was before Aggie’s postponed the match against Tennessee last week. With another postponement coming this time, all A & M can do is wait patiently and get ready to play against LSU next week — hopefully.

3. Florida

Record: 5-1

PRV. Rank: 3

this week: Vanderbilt, Saturday 11am

TV set: ESPN

line: Florida by 31½

story: Like Texas A & M, Florida has been in tears since losing to Aggie on October 10. The Gators are ranked fourth in the nation with an average of 371.7 passyards, as SEC co-attack player Kyle Trusk has successfully carried out Dan Mullen’s attack. Earn 45.8 points per game and reach 6th place.

4. Georgia

Record: 4-2

PRV. Rank: Four

this week: Saturday, Mississippi, 6:30 pm

TV set: SEC network

line: Georgia up to 25 years old

story: Georgia has lost two of the last three games, but they are now in the hands of No. 1 Alabama and No. 6 Florida. Last week’s postponement vs. Missouri gave the bulldog time to put together their actions for the game. If they can collect some kind of attack, they should win without problems.

5. AUBURN

Record: 4-2

PRV. Rank: Five

this week: vs. Tennessee, Saturday 6pm

TV set: ESPN

line: Auburn up to 11 years old

story: On the last look, Auburn was crushing the LSU 37 points on October 31st, but didn’t seem to be that close after the scoreless first quarter. Gus Martzan’s team has been idling ever since, but it’s well worth the wait as the struggling Tennessee team loses four games in a row.

6. Arkansas

Record: 3-4

PRV. Rank: 6

this week: Against LSU, Saturday 11am

TV set: SEC network

line: Arkansas by 2½

story: After winning three games, Arkansas turned to reality with a 28-point retreat to Florida at The Swamp last week. It didn’t get ugly with just a few seconds of touchdown, but Arkansas needs to feel good about himself as a favorite for LSU after being a 42-point underdog a year ago.

7. Missouri

Record: 2-3

PRV. Rank: 7

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

TV set: SEC network (alternative)

line: Missouri 6½

story: After defeating LSU and Kentucky, Missouri sees another opportunity this week to take a step back in respect. With the exception of the match against Georgia, which was postponed last week, Mizuu has four winning matches — starting with a road contest with the fragile South Carolina team.

8. LSU

Record: 2-3

PRV. Rank: 8

this week: Saturday at 11:00 am in Arkansas

TV set: SEC network

line: Arkansas by 2½

story: What will change in a year? Around this time last season, LSU was well on its way to becoming a national title with 42 points supported by Arkansas. Now, the Tigers are the slightest vulnerable in this turbulent season. Keep in mind that Ed Olgeron hasn’t lost two games in a row since taking over in 2016.

9. OLE MISS

Record: 3-4

PRV. Rank: 9

this week: Texas A & M, ppd.

TV set: Not applicable

line: Not applicable

story: Olemis has been feeling a little better lately after getting the attack back on track in the last two outings. There are 50 people each in Vanderbilt (54) and South Carolina (59). However, the postponement to Texas A & M will temporarily slow the rebel roll.

10. Kentucky

Record: 3-4

PRV. Rank: 11

this week: Saturday at 3:00 pm in Alabama

TV set: SEC network

line: Alabama up to 30 years old

story: Kentucky was frightened when he abandoned 35 points after holding down his four previous opponents to a total of 43 points in his victory over Vanderbilt last week. This should be a concern on the way to face the top-ranked Alabama team, which appears to be scoring at will in the second average 47.2 points game on FBS.

11. South Carolina

Record: 2-5

PRV. Rank: Ten

this week: vs. Missouri, Saturday 6:30 pm

TV set: SEC network (alternative)

line: Missouri 6½

story: Will Muschan fell after losing the next three games while South Carolina, who confused Auburn on October 17, scored 52, 48 and 59 points. Two of the top three cornerbacks have decided to opt out of preparing for the NFL draft, so it may not be that good for South Carolina and interim coach Mike Bobo.

12. Mississippi

Record: 2-4

PRV. Rank: 12

this week: Saturday at 6:30 pm in Georgia

TV set: SEC network

line: Georgia up to 25 years old

story: Mississippi State University had an unexpected opening day last week after a touchdown squeak at Vanderbilt University. The state certainly needed it, given that the attack scored only 45 points in the last five games after putting 44 on the board in the opening round of the LSU. Alas, a smart Georgia team is waiting for you.

13. Tennessee

Record: 2-4

PRV. Rank: 13

this week: Auburn, Saturday at 6pm

TV set: ESPN

line: Auburn up to 11 years old

story: Like Mississippi, the Tennessee attack went south with two wins, scoring 31 and 35 points since the start of the season. Since then, Vols has scored a total of 58 points in four consecutive defeats. They may feel that they are in a difficult situation to defend Auburn.

14. Vanderbilt

Record: 0-6

PRV. Rank: 14

this week: Saturday 11am to Florida

TV set: ESPN

line: Florida by 31½

story: Winless Vanderbilt is very competitive in losing 5, 7 and 3 points in 3 road games. However, the Commodores are corrupt at home and have lost all three games with a cumulative score of 136-35. Maybe they should have asked the SEC office to move the game to Gainesville.
