Ranking the SEC

Auburn, Tennessee and Mississippi State all lose. Ole Miss is thrashed by Vanderbilt. Things are starting to take shape now in the SEC as another big week approaches.

1. LSU- Tiger defense holds MSU to less than 200 yards. Big test coming up at West Virginia.

2. Alabama- Tide rolls over North Texas. Won't be as easy this weekend against Arkansas.

3. South Carolina- Gamecocks finally showed a hint of a defense against Navy. USC will need to avoid being distracted by NCAA allegations of violations when it hosts Vanderbilt on Saturday.

4. Florida- Gators easily handle Vols and Tyler Bray. A visit to Kentucky is next on the agenda.

5. Arkansas- Arkansas defense allows 457 yards to Troy in Fayetteville. Things get tougher this week at Alabama.

6. Tennessee- Lack of a running game dooms Vols at Florida. UT has an off week to work on that aspect of their offense.

7. Auburn- Tigers lose at tough Clemson. A visit from Florida Atlantic should get them back on the winning track.

8. Mississippi State- Bulldogs shut down at home by LSU. Should get back to .500 with a visit from Louisiana Tech.

9. Georgia- Dogs bash Coastal Carolina. A trip to Ole Miss won't be as easy.

10. Vanderbilt- Commodores drill Ole Miss in Nashville. Tougher test comes at South Carolina.

11. Ole Miss- Rebels intercepted five times by Vandy. Host Georgia on Saturday.

12. Kentucky- Wildcats fall to Louisville at home. Florida will be a tougher opponent in Lexington this week.
