We’re just five days away from some closure at the top of the Official SEC Country Power Poll. LSU has fended Alabama off for the past few weeks, and even added to its lead at No. 1 in Sunday’s Week 10 edition.
Saturday’s game in Tuscaloosa will finally prove SEC writers right — or very, very wrong. Sixteen of 17 voters put LSU at No. 1 over Alabama, which got the remaining first-place nod.
Meanwhile, Florida has cemented its spot at No. 3; the Gators did not cede a single vote to Ole Miss, which is still well ahead of in-state rival Mississippi State (No. 5).
Georgia (No. 6 to No. 9) had the biggest drop of any team, while Tennessee (No. 8 to No. 6) made the biggest rise.
Full results are below:
|RANK||TEAM||POINTS||1ST PLACE |
|5||Mississippi State (6-2)||147||0||4||6||5|
|6||Texas A&M (6-2)||136||0||5||11||7|
|12||South Carolina (3-5)||27||0||11||14||12|
