SEC power rankings after Week 4: Tennessee and TAMU win, UGA struggles

Week 4 of the college football season saw several good upsets but there was no shocking outcome in the SEC.

Tennessee took down Florida and the Volunteers look to have exercised some demons. Texas A&M beat Arkansas and Kent State was able to keep it close with Georgia.

Auburn and Missouri played a very competitive but bad football game that saw each team make several big mistakes. Missouri’s goal-line fumble in overtime was enough for Auburn to get the win and for Bryan Harsin to live another week.
