Do we call this past week Separation Saturday?
Might be a stretch to go that far, but there’s no doubt two teams have established themselves as the best in the SEC.
Alabama and Texas A&M.
The Crimson Tide took care of Arkansas in Fayetteville and the Aggies hung on to beat Tennessee in overtime.
They are 1-2 in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll. The 17-person panel includes voters from SEC Country and around the nation.
Alabama doesn’t have to wait long to find out where it stands next to the SEC’s next-in-line teams. The Tide play at Tennessee on Saturday followed by Texas A&M coming to Tuscaloosa on Oct. 22. The Aggies, by the way, are off this week before their test against top-ranked Alabama.
What about the rest of the SEC? Auburn dominated Mississippi State and picked up some spots in this week’s poll (from No. 8 to No. 5). Ole Miss didn’t play and stayed in the mix among the top-tier teams at No. 4.
