Sports Illustrated released its top-25 rankings in college football on Wednesday and five SEC teams made the list.
There is no surprise at the top. Defending national champion Alabama claimed the top spot followed by the team it beat for the title in Clemson. Florida State is third, Michigan is ranked No. 4 and the LSU is the second team from the SEC at No. 5.
Perhaps the biggest surprise from an SEC standpoint is Tennessee making the top-10 at No. 10. Georgia is ranked No. 16 and Ole Miss is ranked No. 19.
Some people might take issue with Florida not being ranked, but it’s hard to argue than any SEC team was really snubbed here.
The ACC also has five teams in the SI top-25, if you consider Notre Dame part of the league. The Pac-12 also put five teams in the rankings. There are four Big Ten teams and three from the Big 12. Houston, San Diego State and Boise State are also included with Houston ranked in the top-10 at No. 8.
