The SEC stumbled out of the gate to start the college football season last week with the exception of defending national champion Alabama, which dismantled a fellow blue blood program in USC on a neutral field.
ESPN released its SEC power rankings on Wednesday and Texas A&M and LSU were the two biggest movers in the rankings compared to the preseason rankings published by the outlet.
The Aggies moved from seventh to second after beating UCLA at home in overtime and LSU fell from second to seventh after a disappointing loss on a neutral field in Green Bay against Wisconsin.
Mississippi State also fell to the basement of the league from No. 10 in the preseason list after losing to South Alabama in its opener. Here is a look at this week’s rankings:
- Texas A&M
- Ole Miss
- South Carolina
- Mississippi State
