The SEC has two 9-1 teams, but there’s little confusion as to which one is playing better football.
Alabama was the SEC Country Power Poll’s unanimous No. 1 for the second straight week after demolishing Mississippi State 31-6 in Starkville on Saturday evening.
The Crimson Tide scored all 17 first-place votes, while one-loss Florida remained in second place with a healthy lead over new No. 3 Arkansas.
Nick Saban’s team will take on Charleston Southern this Saturday before focusing its attention on Auburn (No. 10) and the Iron Bowl.
Here are this week’s poll results:
|RANK||TEAM||POINTS||1ST PLACE |
|8||Mississippi State (7-3)||115||0||5||9||4|
|9||Texas A&M (7-3)||101||0||5||9||10|
|14||South Carolina (3-7)||9||0||12||14||12|
