The No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs sit on their throne on every poll including the USA Today Coaches Poll and Associated Press. Here’s how the top 5 in the SEC reads, according to voters at 247Sports.

  1. Georgia Bulldogs

  2. LSU Tigers

  3. Ole Miss Rebels

  4. Alabama Crimson Tide

  5. Florida Gators

Right behind the Gators at No. 6 is Tennessee after falling to the Orange and Blue on the road, moving them down three spots.

Missouri improved significantly as well, rising six spots and tying with the Volunteers. The Mississippi State Bulldogs tumbled the most, falling five spots to dead last in the ranks after getting slaughtered by LSU.
