SEC Power Poll Ballot: Week Four

How does the SEC stack up after four weeks of play?

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

1. Texas A&M Aggies

The Aggies continue to roll along and still have the most impressive victory with their drubbing of South Carolina in Columbia.

2. Alabama Crimson Tide

The Tide made a major statement this weekend in their blowout win over Florida, a game that was even more lopsided than the score makes it seem. This could have easily been a six- or seven-touchdown rout if not for Alabama's fumble problems in the first half.

3. Mississippi St. Bulldogs

The Bulldogs got the biggest win of the Dan Mullen era when they beat LSU in Baton Rouge over the weekend. Welcome to the Heisman race, Dak Prescott.

4. Auburn Tigers

The Tigers looked shaky against Kansas St. but still left Manhattan, KS with a win.

5. Ole Miss Rebels

The Rebels took the week off. They have one more tuneup (against Memphis) before hosting Alabama in two weeks.

6. LSU Tigers

LSU's young talent didn't grow up quickly enough to help the Tigers beat a more experienced Miss. St. squad.

7. South Carolina Gamecocks

The Gamecocks come in at the top of the SEC East for now by virtue of their head-to-head win over UGA and Mizzou's apparent fall from grace. Whether Carolina can keep that spot over the course of the season remains to be seen.

8. Georgia Bulldogs

The Dawgs dominated lowly Troy.

9. Arkansas Razorbacks

The Hogs blew out Northern Illinois. Not a huge win in the scheme of things, but further indication of progress for Arkansas. Unfortunately for this improving team, it's hard to see where it's going to get a win in the loaded SEC West.

10.  Tennessee Volunteers

The Vols took the week off. They travel to UGa this coming weekend.

11. Missouri Tigers

A home loss to an Indiana team that had lost to Bowling Green the week prior isn't what Missouri wanted as it heads into conference play.

12. Florida Gators

After needing triple overtime to beat Kentucky at home and then getting blasted out of Bryant-Denny, it's pretty clear that this Florida team isn't much better than last year's team. Hard to see Will Muschamp surviving the season.

13. Kentucky Wildcats

Kentucky took the week off. The 'Cats play Vandy next weekend in a game that UK needs to win if it hopes to make it back to the postseason this fall.

14. Vanderbilt Commodores

Vandy hung tougher with South Carolina than expected, but the result was still a two-touchdown home defeat.
