Week 9 SEC Football Power Rankings

·2 min read

Straight up, this was a pretty boring weekend in the SEC.

Throughout college football as well. We’ve been spoiled by the noon slates that have kicked off some fantastic afternoons of college football, and this week it felt like we stumbled out of the gate with some boring games throughout the country.

There were no upsets in the SEC, nor were there any ranked-on-ranked matchups. Surprising, I know.

There wasn’t much shakeup in the power rankings either, as a lot of teams have elected to take their byes over the course of the next couple of weeks.

Here are the SEC power rankings heading into week nine.
