Ranking the SEC

Alabama and LSU continue their dominance. Arkansas is a party spoiler in Dallas. Auburn continues to improve. Florida and South Carolina sputter. Ole Miss rebounds at Fresno State and Tennessee wins handily at home.

1. (tie) LSU- Tigers handle Kentucky easily. Host Florida this week.

1. (tie) Alabama- Bama deserves a piece of No. 1 as their schedule has been just as tough as LSU's with dominating results.

3. Arkansas- In shootout, Hogs throw wrench into Texas A&M's SEC welcoming party. Host better than expected Auburn team on Saturday.

4. Florida- Gators were clobbered at home by 'Bama. Next up is the other top conference team, LSU, in Red Stick, Louisiana.

5. Auburn- Tigers continue to impress. They may make a decent bowl at this rate but a visit to Arkansas will be a tough draw for any team.

6. South Carolina- Gamecocks and Spurrier get decked at home by feisty Auburn club. USC should be able to get back on the winning track as they host Kentucky on Saturday.

7. Tennessee- UT thrashed Buffalo on Saturday. Georgia visits Knoxville on Saturday.

8. Georgia- Dogs beat the MSU Canines 24-10 in Athens. A win at Tennessee on Saturday would be huge.

9. Mississippi State- Very tough opening slate of teams for MSU. This week's game with UAB should produce positive results.

10. Vanderbilt- After an off week Vandy gets a trip to Tuscaloosa to face the very tough Crimson Tide. What does James Franklin have up his sleeve?

11. Ole Miss- Ole Miss handles Fresno State fairly easily for the second year in a row. The win should make the Rebs bye week more enjoyable.

12. Kentucky- UK falls at LSU, 35-7. Cats will have another tough one this week when they visit a very mad South Carolina team.
