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): The Crimson Tide will play at Missouri on Saturday after they had a bye this past weekend.
2. South Carolina (6-0): Steve Spurrier's Gamecocks held Georgia to 224 total yards in a 35-7 laugher.
3. Florida (5-0): The Gators used a dominant defense and Mike Gillislee's career-high 146 yards and two touchdowns to beat LSU 14-6.
4. LSU (5-1): The Tigers were defeated for the first time in 19 regular season games as they fell to Florida 14-6.
5. Georgia (5-1): Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall were held to 76 total yards in a blowout loss to South Carolina.
6. Mississippi State (5-0): The Bulldogs held Kentucky to just 228 yards of total offense in a 27-14 victory.

13. Auburn (1-4): Kiehl Frazier was benched in favor of Clint Moseley, who threw a pair of interceptions in the end zone during the fourth quarter, as the Tigers fell to Arkansas.
