ESPN updates its power rankings following Week 4 games
ESPN has updated its power rankings with Week 4 of the college football season and Week 1 of the SEC season in the books.
What a wild week it was in the SEC with AP Top 10 teams Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M notably stumbling out of the gate. UGA and A&M managed to come out 1-0, but the defending national champions fell at home to Mike Leach’s Mississippi State Bulldogs.
The latest ESPN Power Rankings from Chris Low reflect the big shakeup in the SEC. MSU, previously out of the Top 25, is now at No. 8. Florida also moves up while Georgia and Texas A&M fall. With Kentucky’s loss to Auburn, the SEC is now at six teams in the top 25 of ESPN’s rankings, down from eight last week.
Here is how ESPN ranks the nation in terms of power rankings heading into Week 2 of the SEC season:
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Penn State
- Mississippi State
- Virginia Tech
- North Carolina
- Kansas State
- Oklahoma State
