# Team Record AP ESPN Pom BBSt. Sag AVG* Comments
01 Kentucky Wildcats 16-4 (4-2) 14 16 5 9 9 7.67 Took care of business last week. Standard operating procedure for Kentucky.
02 Vanderbilt Commodores 15-5 (3-3) 19 22 31 17 25 24.33 Gutted out a win against Mississippi State and then got spanked at home by Arkansas. Must bounce back with road trip to Florida and then a payback opportunity with South Carolina in Nashville.
03 Florida Gators 16-5 (5-2) 24 23 38 25 29 30.67 Tough loss to Mississippi State heading into big SEC East matchups with Vandy on Tuesday and Kentucky on Saturday. Both at home.
04 Tennessee Volunteers 14-7 (4-2) 38 X 45 35 35 38.33 Vols sitting pretty, heading into matchups with the teams from Alabama while the other SEC East challengers rough each other up.
05 Georgia Bulldogs 14-6 (3-4) 31 30 55 45 50 50.00 Sitting at the bottom of the SEC East, but has had the toughest opening slate in the SEC.
06 Alabama Crimson Tide 13-7 (5-1) X X 41 57 81 59.67 All alone in first place in the SEC. Can they keep it up?
07 Mississippi Rebels 13-8 (1-5) X X 85 79 94 86.00 After Tuesday night, will have played the "big boys" of the SEC East. Frontloaded schedule, much?
08 Arkansas Razorbacks 14-6 (4-3) X X 99 99 85 94.33 Big road win in Nashville on the back of red-hot Rotnei Clarke. More of that and they could challenge for the West title.
09 South Carolina Gamecocks 12-7 (3-3) X X 106 84 95 95.00 Ouch.
10 Mississippi St. Bulldogs 11-9 (3-3) X X 159 125 163 149.00 Did letting late lead vs. Vandy slip away help them close versus Florida?
11 LSU Tigers 10-11 (2-4) X X 218 191 199 202.67 Looking to get rolling vs. South Carolina and then Mississippi State.
12 Auburn Tigers 8-13 (1-6) X X 246 261 266 257.67 On the road in Columbia? Did not see that coming.
