After a month’s worth of SEC play, some of the league’s surprises are getting sorted out. Kentucky had an ugly series with Georgia, but South Carolina held its own with LSU. The league’s top half dozen teams are still basically interchangeable, and at any point when a league boasts 5 of the nation’s top 6 teams, you’ve got to figure things set up for an eventful postseason.

Here’s our latest SEC baseball power rankings.

14. Ole Miss (18-13, 2-10)

News could have been worse for the Rebels, who won a game against Arkansas and had a real shot to win the series Saturday. That said, having the worst record in the SEC isn’t exactly a recipe for success for the Rebs. Then again, other than LSU coming up in a week and a half, the Rebel schedule gets substantially easier for the rest of SEC play. The Rebels will need to hit better in the remainder of SEC play than the .236 mark (13th in the SEC) that they’ve managed so far.

13. Georgia (18-14, 3-9)

The Bulldogs promptly won their first league series of the year, dropping the opener and then shutting Kentucky down at the plate. Holding UK to just 9 runs in the 3-game series was impressive work by UGA, and their league ERA dropped by about a run and a half per game. That said, UGA is still the 3rd lowest-scoring team in SEC play and still has 0 season stolen base attempts. So that pitching better stay sharp.

12. Alabama (23-10, 4-8)

Bama lost their series to Mississippi State, dominating in an 11-1 win on Friday but giving up 20 runs on Thursday and Saturday. If the Tide want to establish themselves for NCAA Tournament contention, the next 2 weekends are huge. Bama hosts Auburn and then goes to Mizzou. Bama really needs to be near .500 after those matchups, because the following two weekends will bring a trip to LSU and then hosting Vandy.

11. Mississippi State (19-14, 3-9)

MSU nabbed a series win over Bama, and they follow it up by hosting Ole Miss and going to Auburn. That’s the good news. The bad news is that even in winning a series and lowering their team ERA in league play by over a run, MSU still has an 11.20 ERA in SEC play. Factor in 81 walks in 98 innings pitched and a league-high 29 home runs allowed and you get the idea that we’re talking about a Bulldogs team that can’t pitch well enough to get any higher than this in the league pecking order.

10. Auburn (19-12, 4-8)

We’ve got the Tigers at the top of a handful of motley groups, any one of whom could make a postseason run. The Tigers dropped their series to Texas A&M, scoring 21 runs in the 3 games, but allowing 30. Much like State, Auburn’s pitching has genuinely been awful. Auburn’s next 2 weeks (at Bama, home against State) give them a chance to make a move. South Carolina and LSU await after that, so this pitching thing needs to be fixed by then.

9. Missouri (20-11, 4-8)

The Tigers dropped a series to Vandy, but really weren’t awful in doing so. Friday’s 5-4 win over Vandy was their first league W since March 19th. If Mizzou hadn’t swept Tennessee to open league play, they’d be in a really bad place. As things stand, they’ve still been the worst offense in the SEC, hitting .223 with just 8 homers in league play. But the back half of Missouri’s schedule is easier and should help camouflage some of their offensive woes. Next up is a trip to College Station in what should be a pretty solid matchup.

8. Texas A&M (20-12, 5-7)

Fresh off a series win over Auburn, the Aggies have had a rough season, but really aren’t that far off their intended pace — they’re only 3 games ahead of West leader Arkansas, and could make that up in the series to end April. This weekend’s A&M/Mizzou series should be fascinating, because the league’s worst offense gets to face a pitching staff with an 8.17 ERA in league play. Meanwhile, A&M’s effective offense will match up with a surprisingly tough Mizzou pitching staff. Could be a chance for the Aggies to inch even closer to the top of the West.

7. Tennessee (22-10, 5-7, No. 17 in Baseball America)

The Vols dropped another series, this one to Florida, albeit while winning the finale 14-2. But this Tennessee team — which is hitting .249 in league play with an ERA over 5 and the most errors in the SEC — is a far cry from last season’s team. UT is about to face Arkansas and Vandy over the next 2 weeks, so it’s an uphill battle from here. The Vols should be pondering last season’s Ole Miss team and remembering, it’s about playing well at the end of the season and upsetting expectations in the postseason.

6. Kentucky (27-5, 9-3, No. 12 in BA)

Losing a series at some point was almost certain. But Kentucky dropping a pair of games to Georgia isn’t a good look. The Wildcats have struggled with left-handed pitching, and that’ll be an issue to watch moving forward. Of course, the Wildcats’ mettle will be tested seriously this weekend, when they head to LSU.

5. Arkansas (25-6, 8-4, No. 6 in BA)

The Hogs won their series with Ole Miss, but again, they’re squeaking by against mediocre competition. Arkansas will host Tennessee this weekend, and the Hogs are 20-2 at home. Win that series and the Hogs have a chance to nab the division over LSU — even though the Tigers won their series 2 games to 1. Why? Arkansas’ next 3 weekend matchups will be Georgia, A&M and Mississippi State — 3 of the SEC’s worst teams.

4. South Carolina (28-4, 9-2, No. 4)

The Gamecocks split a pair of games with LSU, with freshman sensation Ethan Petry continuing to personally destroy the LSU. Petry mashed the first league homer off Tigers ace Paul Skenes and added a grand slam. Petry has 51 RBIs, tying him with LSU slugger Tommy White for the league lead.

The bad news for Carolina is that 5 of their remaining 6 series are against Top 20 opponents. It will be a pressure cooker for USC and if their pitching staff can hold up against that juggernaut, USC should be ready for a run to the College World Series.

3. Florida (27-6, 9-3, No. 2 in BA)

Jac Caglianone ripped his SEC-leading 19th homer of the year in Knoxville as the Gators won that series over the Vols. On the down side, in a 14-2 loss on Saturday, Caglianone walked 6 batters and watched his ERA balloon to nearly 5 for the season. So like his team, the 2-way star they call “Jactani” isn’t invincible. But like his team, he’s still really scary.

UF leads the SEC in home runs (at the plate) and strikeouts (on the mound). They host Georgia and Missouri in between a pivotal road series at South Carolina, and could make their case as the SEC’s top team.

2. Vanderbilt (26-6, 11-1, No. 4 in BA)

Vandy finally lost an SEC game but still won its series with Mizzou, in part thanks to an impressive defensive play to end the first game.

The Vandy Boys are still tops in the SEC in batting average and ERA, and they have the fewest errors in SEC play. Devin Futrell has been on fire on the mound, posting 15 1/3 straight scoreless innings. Vandy faces ranked teams in its next 3 weekends, hosting Carolina, going to Tennessee, and then hosting Kentucky. If Vandy runs that gamut, they’re ready for the stretch run.

1. LSU (26-5, 7-4, No. 1)

LSU still hasn’t swept a series, even with an abbreviated 2-game matchup at Carolina. But the Tigers could have dropped both games, too, as they had to rally from a 7-3 deficit to split the games.

But they’re still the best team in the country. Dylan Crews is still hitting (checks notes) .510. Tommy Tanks is still mashing (11 HRs, 51 RBIs) and Skenes still looks like the most dominant pitcher in college baseball. So here they are — still — No. 1.
