After three weeks of college football, there are five SEC teams ranked inside the Top 10. So, what are the SEC Power Rankings? Check out the Week 3 SEC Power Rankings as determined by 1130 the Tiger contributor Jeff Ericson.

  • 1


    (2-0, 1-0 SEC) Next week: Vs. Colorado St.

    Went on the road and dominated in front of a wild crowd in College Station. This team still does have some questions though, but with getting LSU at home they now look to be in the driver’s seat for the SEC Championship game.

  • 2


    (3-0, 0-0 SEC) Next week: Vs. Auburn

    With the win against TCU looking less and less impressive by the week how good is this LSU team really?  We should find out a little next week against Auburn.

  • 3


    (1-1, 1-0 SEC) Next week: Vs. North Texas

    Aaron Murray was able to put the critics to rest against South Carolina and played very well against Clemson.  If the defense can figure it out this is a National Title caliber team.

  • 4

    Texas A&M

    (2-1, 0-1 SEC) Next week: Vs. SMU

    Johnny Football showed up against Bama but it wasn’t enough.  The Aggie defense will keep this team from doing anything to improve upon last year’s record. 

  • 5

    South Carolina

    (2-1, 1-1 SEC) Next week: Idle

    1)      Conner Shaw is proving once again this year he is a winner.  The loss at Georgia aside, he has been strong.  Clowney and the defense still have yet to hit their stride, but if they do... we could easily see this team win out.

  • 6

    Ole Miss

    (3-0, 1-0 SEC) Next week: Idle

    So far this year we have watched the Rebels win against Vandy and now Texas.    However those wins seem like they could lose their luster by season’s end.  The Rebs are an interesting team though, as their young freshmen continue to learn their roles and the speed at the college level. Ole Miss could be a tough matchup for anyone.

    (1-1, 0-0 SEC) Next week: Vs. Tennessee

    The Gators are team that no one seems to be afraid of right now.  A win against Toledo to start the season that was lackluster and then a loss to Miami that was downright ugly puts the Gators in an interesting spot.  The last couple years they have been very average offensively, but have won.  What happens this year if their defense can’t win them several games by themselves?

    (2-0, 0-0 SEC) Next week: @ Indiana

    Mizzou finds itself in a pivotal year for Head Coach Gary Pinkle.  The Tigers went 5-7 last year, but had a gluttony of injuries that made their first season in the SEC a nightmare.  The Tigers face their first BCS team this week when they travel to Bloomington to face a below average Hoosier team.

  • 9


    (3-0, 1-0 SEC) Next week: @ LSU

    Coming off a nice win to open SEC play against Mississippi State, Auburn is riding high.  They should come in to Baton Rouge with lots of confidence, but things could get ugly come Saturday.

  • 10


    (1-2, 0-2 SEC) Next week: @ Massachusetts

    Tough losses have marred the beginning of the Commodore’s season.  Seems as if the off-season issues may be having some effect on the team.  They should be able to right the ship this week as they travel to face UMass in Gillett Stadium.

  • 11


    (2-1, 0-1 SEC) Next week: @ Florida

    The Pacific Northwest was not kind to the Volunteers as they were destroyed by their biggest margin of defeat in almost a century. This week they travel to The Swamp to play in a game that will feature lots of ugly football. Expect to see another loss for the Vols.

  • 12


    (3-0, 0-0 SEC) Next week: @ Rutgers

    The Pigs have played a soft schedule so far so it’s hard to take too much away from it.  They did have a close call against Samford, but for now I am holding off judgment.  Their trip to Rutgers should shed some light on the quality of this year’s team.

  • 13

    Mississippi State

    (1-2, 0-1 SEC) Next week: Vs. Troy

    If Dan Mullen wasn’t on the hot seat before the loss to Auburn... he has to be now.  The Bulldogs will need to put a few wins together in order to assure themselves a bowl berth.

  • 14


    (1-2, 0-0 SEC) Next Week: Idle

    They we’re able to play with Bridgewater and Louisville and avoid being blown out, but this is not a good team. The recruiting that Mark Stoops is showing is promising for the future, but the present looks bleak.
