Week 6 SEC power rankings

Dave Miller

Every Tuesday during the season I will release league power rankings, which you can find under the College tab at the top of this page. The six BCS conferences will all have their own power rankings, while I will also rank the best of the non-BCS squads.

With that in mind, let's take a look at how the SEC shapes up:

1. Alabama (5-0): For the fifth week in a row the Crimson Tide scored 30 or more points while keeping their opponent at 14 or less.

2. LSU (5-0): The Tigers stretched their streak to 41 straight victories over nonconference opponents in the regular season with a 38-22 win over Towson.

3. South Carolina (5-0): Steve Spurrier's Gamecocks scored 31 unanswered points against Kentucky in a 38-17 victory.

4. Georgia (5-0): Freshmen running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall were dominant on the ground as the Bulldogs beat Tennessee 51-44.

5. Florida (4-0): The Gators had a bye this past weekend and will host LSU on Saturday in a huge cross-division league showdown.
