There were some big shakeups in the SEC this week, including a massive road victory for LSU, but the Crimson Tide remain a step ahead of everyone else.
1.) Alabama (3-0, 1-0)
The Crimson Tide continue to display that they are on a completely different level than not only the rest of the conference, but the rest of the country. With Tua Tagovailoa, Nick Saban finally has a lethal passing game to go along with his elite running backs. Not to mention, their defense shut down one of the top offenses in the SEC in their 62-7 rout of Ole Miss.
Week 4: vs. Texas A&M (2-1) 3:30 PM on CBS
2.) Georgia (3-0, 1-0)
The Bulldogs put up 40 or more points against their opponent for the third straight week. Georgia rushed for 261 yards in their 49-7 defeat of Middle Tennessee. The schedule gets a little tougher this week for the Bulldogs as they travel to Mizzou.
Week 4: at Missouri (3-0) 12:00 PM on ESPN
3.) LSU (3-0, 1-0)
Ed Orgeron’s seat is cooling by the game as LSU stunned Auburn with a 22-21 road victory. The Tigers have the best resume in college football with two top 10 victories on the season. Their schedule is brutal as they still have to play Alabama and Georgia, but Coach O has his believing in themselves.
Week 4: vs. Louisiana Tech (2-0) 7:00 PM on ESPNU
4.) Auburn (2-1, 0-1)
Auburn still holds the best nonconference victory in the SEC, but the loss to LSU was a huge missed opportunity and could come back to haunt them later in the season. They had LSU right where they wanted them, but could not come away with a victory. The schedule gets kinder for the Tigers this week as they host the Razorbacks.
Week 4: vs. Arkansas (1-2) 7:00 PM on SEC Network
5.) Mississippi State (3-0)
Nick Fitzgerald led the team in both passing and rushing yards as Mississippi State trounced Louisiana 56-10 in Starkville last week. MSU should get more of a challenge this week as they will face a much-improved Kentucky team.
Week 4: at Kentucky (3-0) 7:00 PM on ESPNU
6. Texas A&M (2-1)
The Aggies got a break this past week after taking Clemson down to the wire in Week 2 as they easily defeated Louisiana Monroe 48-10. However, the schedule heats up in a hurry as they travel to Tuscaloosa this week.
Week 4: at Alabama (3-0) 3:30 PM on CBS
7. Kentucky (3-0, 1-0)
The Wildcats were able to make quick work of Murray State in large part due to a massive third quarter. Terry Wilson has provided the team with a level of quarterback play that they have not seen in the past decade. That being said, the conference gets a chance to see exactly how much Kentucky has improved as Mississippi State comes to town.
Week 4: vs. Mississippi State (3-0) 7:00 PM on ESPN 2
8. Missouri (3-0)
Missouri went to Purdue last week and came away with a 40-37 victory. Drew Lock and the Mizzou offense look to be the real deal, but will their defense be able to keep the offenses in the SEC in check? They certainly have their work cut out for them this week as Georgia makes their way to Columbia.
Week 4: vs. Georgia (3-0) 12:00 PM on ESPN
9. Vanderbilt (2-1)
Despite losing to Notre Dame, the Commodores turned in an impressive performance in South Bend. Kyle Shurmur looked poised in the pocket and exhibited the attributes that put him on NFL team’s radar. Vandy will get a chance to prove they are contenders in the East as they host South Carolina.
Week 4: vs. South Carolina (1-1) 4:00 PM on the SEC Network
10. South Carolina (1-1, 0-1)
The Gamecocks most likely deserve to be a little higher on this list, but they have the distinct disadvantage of not playing a game this past week due to Hurricane Florence. Therefore, the last thing everyone remembers is their dismal performance against Georgia. South Carolina will finally have a chance to put that lost behind them as they travel to Nashville this week to face Vandy.
Week 4: vs. Vanderbilt (2-1) 4:00 PM on the SEC Network
11. Ole Miss (2-1, 0-1)
After scoring a touchdown on the opening play, the Rebels were flat out embarrassed by the Crimson Tide. The highly touted offense looked inefficient and lost against Alabama. Ole Miss will look to put that loss behind them as they host Kent State this week.
Week 4: vs. Kent State (1-2) 12:00 PM on SEC Network
12. Florida (2-1, 0-1)
After a disappointing performance against Kentucky, the Gators bounced back nicely this week by defeating Colorado State with ease. The Gators get a chance to redeem themselves in SEC play this week as they travel to Knoxville.
Week 4: at Tennessee (2-1) 7:00 PM on ESPN
13. Tennessee (2-1)
Congratulations Tennessee, you are not the worst team in the SEC (surprisingly). However, the Volunteers looked underwhelming in their 24-0 victory over UTEP. Tennessee gets their first taste of SEC play this week they host Florida.
Week 4: vs. Florida (2-1) 7:00 PM on ESPN
14. Arkansas (1-2)
This year was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Razorbacks, but there is still no excuse for losing back-to-back games to Colorado State and North Texas by a combined score of 78-44. Auburn could bench their whole starting lineup and still win big this week.
