Ranking the SEC

Other than LSU's big win over Oregon, there weren't too many surprises in the SEC. Look inside to see how the SEC stacks up from top to bottom.

1. LSU- Got to give the top spot to the Tigers who soundly defeated last year's No. 2 team on a neutral field. The Ducks had tons of starters back from a team that barely missed being champions.

2. Alabama- Tide takes care of business in opener against an easy opponent patsy.

3. Arkansas- Razorback quarterback Tyler Wilson passes for 260 yards and two scores in debut as new starter.

4. South Carolina- Gamecocks trail early in the game to pass happy ECU but get the job done.

5. Mississippi State- The Dawgs looked impressive in their opener by easily handling a Memphis team, 59-14. How far can MSU move up?

6. Florida- Gators shutdown Florida Atlantic to give head coach Will Muschamp a win in his first game as head coach.

7. Georgia- Bulldogs fall to Boise State in Atlanta. Is Mark Richt finally on the hot seat?

8. Tennessee- Vols get win over scrappy Montana team. At best, it looks like a repeat of last season.

9. Auburn- Defending champions lost a ton of players and it showed against Utah State. The Tigers needed a successful on-side kick to win at home.

11. (tie) Ole Miss- Rebs looked improved but fell at home by one to BYU. However, injuries during the game may cost them some wins down the road.

11. (tie) Vanderbilt- Commodores score 45 points on Elon in opener. Tougher games are coming up but Vandy looks improved and is better coached on offense.

12. Kentucky- Wildcats almost lost to Western Kentucky but pulled out a 14-3 victory. They missed Locke and company badly.
