SEC Power Rankings: Week 6

Stacking up the SEC from 1 to 14

NCAA Football: SEC Media Days Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Five weeks of the college football season has come and gone. Here is what I think of the SEC as we enter week 6 of SEC play.

#1 Alabama Crimson Tide (Last Week: 1)

Pretty sure Nick Saban was taking out some frustration from 2014 and 2015 out on this year’s Rebels this past Saturday.

#2 Georgia Bulldogs (Last Week: #2)

The Bulldogs did their part in getting Butch Jones one step closer to the unemployment line.

#3 Auburn Tigers (Last Week: #3)

Auburn sealed the envelope on being one of the top 3 teams in the SEC.

#4 Florida Gators (Last Week: #4)

Florida didn’t look spectacular but they won. Just an average week for the Gators.

#5 Texas A&M Aggies (Last Week: #12)

Feel like Texas A&M needs to move up, but I don’t anticipate them sticking around for too long. They have Alabama this week so expect the tailspin to get going full speed after Saturday.

#6 Kentucky Wildcats (Last Week: #5)

Kentucky “won” and they should get to 6 or 7 wins, but they aren’t looking all that impressive in the process.

#7 Mississippi St. Bulldogs (Last Week: #6)

Well that was ugly. Mississippi State isn’t as bad as they have looked the past two weeks, they were just two bad matchups. Still don’t see this team finishing the season with less than 7 wins and 8 seems pretty reasonable.

# 8 South Carolina Gamecocks (Last Week: #7)

Muschamp had the Gamecocks looking good early, but not so much now.

#9 Vanderbilt Commodores (Last Week: #9)

Vanderbilt might climb back up the rankings soon. I think there defense will keep them in games, and Derek Mason could get this team to around 7 or wins this year.

#10 Arkansas Razorbacks (Last Week: #13)

Razorbacks have won their easy games and lost their tough ones. 10 sounds about right for them as of right now.

#11 Tennessee Volunteers (Last Week: #10)

I think the most surprising thing from this past weekend regarding the Vols is the fact they haven’t fired Butch Jones yet.

#12 Ole Miss Rebels (Last Week: #13)

Has Ole Miss already given up on the season? And if they haven’t, I don’t think we’re too far away from that point.

#13 LSU Tigers (Last Week: #7)

It’s a legitimate question to ask if Ed Orgeron will will last more than one season as the LSU head coach.

#14 Missouri Tigers (Last Week: #13)

I’m not bumping them up just because of a bye week.

That’s this week’s rankings. We’ll be back at it next week.
