It took 12 weeks but we now know the SEC Championship Game matchup. The SEC Country Power Poll reflects that, too.
Alabama vs. Florida.
Alabama’s 31-3 win against Chattanooga on Saturday got the Tide to 11-0 entering the Iron Bowl next Saturday against Auburn. Alabama will enter the game as the No. 1 team in the SEC Country Power Poll.
A 23-person panel from SEC Country and around the country rank the 14 SEC teams each week.
As its been most of the season, the teams behind Alabama flip flop week to week. LSU, ranked second a week ago, stumbled two places to No. 4 with its 16-10 loss to the Gators.
The top five beyond Bama was Florida, Auburn, LSU and Tennessee.
On the other end, with its upset of Ole Miss, Vanderbilt jumps out of the cellar to 12th. Missouri, which gave up 609 yards and 63 points in its loss to Tennessee fell into the bottom spot.
Check back next week for our weekly installment of the SEC Country Power Poll.
