Don't look now, but Missouri has quietly won three consecutive games.

2017 SEC Country Power Poll (Week 10): Here comes Missouri!

Thomas Neumann

The SEC Country Power Poll doesn’t have Missouri to kick around anymore.

For the first time this season, our pollsters determined the Tigers (4-5, 1-4 SEC) aren’t the worst team in the conference. All Mizzou had to do was score 165 points in a three-game winning streak, capped by a 45-16 blowout of woebegone Florida in Week 10.

While we might have been late to the party in recognizing Missouri, we’re doing our best to make amends. With that in mind, the Tigers vault all the way up to the No. 10 spot. Congrats to Mizzou, which will try to extend its winning streak when it hosts Tennessee in Week 11.

Unsurprisingly, Alabama (9-0, 6-0) retained its hold on the No. 1 ranking with a 24-10 win against visiting LSU. The Crimson Tide have owned first place in our poll every week dating to the beginning of the 2016 season. For the second consecutive week, however, Georgia (9-0, 6-0) claimed the top spot on four ballots and held onto the No. 2 ranking by beating South Carolina 24-10. Auburn (7-2, 5-1)  is locked in at No. 3 after a 42-27 win at Texas A&M.

Mississippi State (7-2, 3-2) moved up one spot for the second week in a row, landing at No. 4 despite a relatively unimpressive win against Massachusetts. Then again, maybe the Bulldogs were saving some energy for Alabama, which comes to Starkville in Week 11.

LSU (6-3, 3-2) drops to fifth with its loss in Tuscaloosa, while South Carolina (6-3, 4-3) actually moves up a slot to No. 6 despite losing in Athens. Texas A&M (5-4, 3-3), by virtue of its loss to Auburn, drops one position to seventh.

Kentucky (6-3, 3-3) stays at No. 8 despite losing 37-34 to visiting Ole Miss, which pretty much sums up the putrid state of the flotsam and jetsam beneath the Wildcats.

Finally, we fast-forward to our new No. 14.

Arkansas (4-5, 1-4) had to muster a furious comeback to post a 39-38 win over lowly Coastal Carolina — a 1-8 opponent from the Sun Belt Conference. As such, the Razorbacks were dropped four spots into the cellar.
