Other than Georgia's ongoing free-fall, the Ratings didn't change a whole lot this week. The teams that were supposed to win last weekend won and the teams that were supposed to lose last weekend lost. That makes updating the rankings pretty simple.
That said, here are this week's SEC Ratings:
1.FLORIDA (8.5): The Gators were idle.
2.TENNESSEE (8.5): The Vols ran for just 57 yards against Alabama but passed for 302 in a come-from-behind 16-13 triumph.
5.LSU (7.5): Les Miles' boys are fast starters ... at least in Baton Rouge. They've outscored six home opponents 94-0 in the first quarter this season. Of course, those six foes were generally pathetic.
7.ALABAMA (7.0): The Tide hung tough with No. 7 Tennessee for three quarters before being outscored 10-0 in the fourth and losing 16-13.
9.VANDERBILT (5.5): The Commodores managed just 253 total yards and didn't dent the end zone until the game's final play in a 31-13 loss to visiting South Carolina.
10.KENTUCKY (5.5): The Wildcats had an open date last weekend.
12.MISSISSIPPI STATE (4.0): The Bulldogs were a field goal away from forcing overtime at Georgia but fumbled at the UGA 22-yard line with mere seconds left, enabling the Dawgs to win 27-24.
