SEC POWER RATINGS
1. Alabama: Who says SEC has become an offensive league? No. 1 team in country is next to last in total offense in the league.
2. Georgia: Smooth sailing for Dawgs until they travel to Jacksonville at the start of November.
3. Texas A&M: Aggies cannot defend, but they can get away with it because of their offense.
4. LSU: Les Miles lost a lot of defensive talent to the NFL and it showed in Athens.
5. Florida: Gators have a lot of resolve, but October will provide some difficult tests.
6. South Carolina: Gamecocks are a bit of a mystery because you don't feel like they've played up to their talent level yet.
7. Auburn: One of the more intriguing games this week is Auburn against a rebounding Ole Miss team.
8. Missouri: Tigers finally play someone this week if you count Vanderbilt as someone.
9. Ole Miss: The Rebels may not have been ready for the big stage, but they still can have a big year.
10. Arkansas: The Razorbacks need to shore up their defense if they're going to handle Florida.
11. Vanderbilt: The Commodores fattened up on softies last two weeks, but return to SEC play.
12. Mississippi State: It will be interesting to see where the rest of Dan Mullen's fifth season goes.
13. Tennessee: Vols struggled against South Alabama, which is in its fifth year of football.
14. Kentucky: It's difficult to see a lot of W's on the rest of the Wildcats' schedule.
