ESPN power ranks the SEC after Week 7
Week 7 across the SEC was highlighted by LSU’s upset of Georgia, and Tennessee’s win at Auburn, which paved the way for a new set of power rankings by ESPN.
Alabama, of course, remained at the top.
“Despite playing one of its sloppiest games of the season and despite being without starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa for much of the second half, the Crimson Tide beat the Missouri Tigers by four touchdowns,” ESPN wrote. “That, in a nutshell, is how dominant Alabama is in the SEC these days.”
While the ranking description said Georgia has nothing to “cry over,” it added that it’s time to take LSU seriously.
“They have a defense, they have a quarterback, and in a couple of weeks, they have Alabama at home.”
Meanwhile, Florida’s win at Vanderbilt showed a sign of maturity, while Tennessee’s win was called a “building block for a program that wants to get back into contending for SEC titles sooner rather than later.”
