Fox Sports writer Stewart Mandel released his updated Top 10 through Week 9 on Sunday. A pair of SEC teams were a given to make the rankings — Alabama and Texas A&M. But another pair also earned their spot in the Top 10.
Mandel moved Auburn and Florida into the Nos. 9 and 10 rankings, respectively, after both picked up victories over conference rivals on Saturday.
Auburn has won five in a row after starting the season 1-2, extending its winning streak with a 40-29 victory at Ole Miss.
Florida beat Georgia 24-10 and holds a two-game lead in the SEC East with three conference games remaining.
Mandel ranked Texas A&M at No. 8, as the Aggies bounced back from their first loss of the year, a defeat at Alabama, to thrash New Mexico State.
The Crimson Tide, who had a bye this week, remain in the top spot with an 8-0 record.
