1. LSU -Had a bye to gear up for their big game with Alabama

2. Alabama -The Tide also had a bye as they prepare to face the Tigers

3. Florida -November has barely started and it's probably already safe for the Gators to book their tickets in Atlanta.

4. Ole Miss -Had a closer call than they should've against Auburn, but pulled off the victory.

5. Texas A&M -The Aggies started a new quarterback against South Carolina and he put up great numbers, so it's safe to say that all of their problems are solved.

6. Mississippi State -Had a week off before heading into a November slate of four straight SEC games

7. Tennessee -Flattened the Wildcats on Saturday. It's possible that they'll stumble sometime in November, but their remaining three conference games are against the worst teams in the SEC, so things are looking good for the Vols.

8. Georgia - Their 27-3 loss to the Gators wasn't as close as the score and I'm sure the Bulldogs are happy to say goodbye to their miserable October.

9. Arkansas -Got a nice blowout win over UT Martin, but the Hogs now have to face Ole Miss and LSU on the road in consecutive weeks.

10. Auburn -Hung around with Ole Miss for a while, but they couldn't quite get it done.

11. Kentucky -The Wildcats were blown out for the second week in a row, this time by Tennessee.

12. South Carolina -Yes, the Gamecocks moved up a spot despite the loss to A&M. They still may not be good enough to get two more wins, but they seem more competent than they did a few weeks ago.

13. Missouri -Had a bye to prep for Mississippi State, though it may not do them much good.

14. Vanderbilt - Houston is a great team, but come on Commodores.
