Previous rank: 5

Last week: 33-10 WIN vs. Arkansas

This week: @ Tennessee

The Tigers had a nice bounce-back game against Arkansas last week, and are looking to hit 8-3 after this week against Tennessee. LSU’s win over Auburn is starting to look real nice.

Previous rank: 4

Last week: 31-24 LOSS vs. Alabama

This week: @ Arkansas

Mississippi State may be the surprise team of the season in the SEC. The back half of their season has been very impressive, and it’s looking like they will have nine wins heading into bowl season.

Previous rank: 2

Last week: 40-17 LOSS @ Auburn

This week: vs. Kentucky

After a tough loss at Auburn, Kirby Smart needs to make sure his teams stays focused. They are still 9-1 on the season, and should end up 11-1 with a chance at an SEC championship if they take care of business.

Previous rank: 3

Last week: 40-17 WIN vs. Georgia

This week: vs. ULM

The Tigers have a ton of momentum with them, and should be able to carry that into the Iron Bowl in a week. If they somehow beat Alabama, things could get crazy.

Previous rank: 1

Last week: 31-24 WIN @ Mississippi State

This week: vs. Mercer

The Tide escaped Starkville with a win last Saturday, and will probably use this week to start preparing for Auburn. The Iron Bowl is going to be a huge matchup.

Next: Kevin Sumlin has a QB problem

Top Matchups of the Week

Texas A&M @ Ole Miss- The Aggies are trying to win out for their coach, but traveling to Ole Miss is never easy

Kentucky @ Georgia- The Bulldogs certainly outmatch the Wildcats, but can they bounce back from their first loss of the year?
