SEC football power rankings after Week 6

·5 min read

Woah, what a weekend of college football.

It was just as good in the SEC as it was everywhere else.

We had two thrillers:

Texas A&M knocked off Alabama, ending Alabama’s 19 game winning streak.

Arkansas went for a two point conversion to beat Ole Miss after scoring on the last play of the game. The Razorbacks came up short and the Rebels won 52-51.

Aside from that, it was business as usual in the SEC. Georgia won big over a top-20 Auburn team, Florida destroyed Vandy, Kentucky looked really solid against LSU.

Here are our SEC power rankings after Week 6.

14. Vanderbilt (2-4, 0-2)

Vanderbilt looking to break records of longest streak at No. 14 in the power rankings.

13. Missouri (3-3, 0-2)

Two weeks old at this point but whatever —

How bad do you have to be to lose 62-24 to TENNESSEE?

12. South Carolina (3-3, 0-3)

Same thing goes for South Carolina as Missouri – you know you’re bad when you get blown out by Tennessee.

11. LSU (3-3, 1-1)

9. Tennessee (4-2, 2-1)

Meh. They blew out South Carolina and Missouri. Yawn.

8. Auburn Tigers (4-2, 1-1)

Things are starting to get a big more difficult now. Auburn, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Ole Miss and Florida all kind of run together to me. Auburn did not look too bad on Saturday, losing to a far better Georgia team. But those receivers have to learn how to catch.

7. Texas A&M (4-2, 1-2)

Oct 9, 2021; College Station, Texas, USA; Texas A&M Aggies running back Devon Achane (6) and wide receiver Jalen Preston (5) celebrate wide receiver Ainias Smith (0) 25 yard touchdown against the Alabama Crimson Tide in fourth quarter at Kyle Field. Mandatory Credit: Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Aggies, you’ve done the impossible. But you’re still only at No. 7.

Yikes, Alabama, what were y’all doing?

6. Arkansas (4-2, 1-2)

The Razorbacks earned my respect when they went for two and the win over Ole Miss. They failed, but what a game that was.

5. Florida (4-2, 2-2)

Another yawn here. Gators are super average.

4. Ole Miss (4-1, 1-1)

Now here’s a fun team. The Rebels can put up points.

3. Kentucky (6-0, 3-0)

Kentucky is a tough football team. I guess we’ll see how tough this weekend against the Georgia Bulldogs.

2. Alabama (5-1, 2-1)

Alabama remains at No. 2 despite the loss. Hey, I’m a Georgia fan…I’m not giving them anymore bulletin board material.

1. Georgia (6-0, 4-0)

Dawgs. On. Top.
