Our weekly look at the gauntlet that is the SEC West and the muddled mess that is the SEC East. The West continues its dominance with a 28-0 record against teams not in the SEC West. The only 3 losses this division has is against each other. Meanwhile, the SEC East looks as confusing as ever. Just one week after Missouri suffers an embarrassing loss to Indiana, they go into Columbia and effectively eliminate South Carolina from SEC championship consideration. Now they have the inside track on winning the SEC East for a second straight year. As it stands from in-game competition:
(unranked) Indiana > #24 Missouri > (unranked) South Carolina > #13 Georgia
Like I said, it’s a mess. But back to the SEC West now. Five teams sit with unblemished records but at least two will have their first losses on Saturday. The football gods have looked down upon us and rewarded our patience for surviving September’s cupcakes.
#3 Alabama @ #11 Ole Miss
#6 Texas A&M @ #12 Mississippi St.
#15 LSU @ #5 Auburn.
Obviously, there will be much jockeying for poll position in October as the confusing East and dominant West figure itself out. Until then, here’s what we’ve got.
Top (1-4): Auburn, Texas A&M, Alabama, Ole Miss
Middle (5-9): Mississippi St, Georgia, LSU, Missouri, Arkansas
Bottom (10-14): South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Vanderbilt
