The SEC East race is over and the SEC West has a new leader after Week 10. A few other teams locked up bowl eligibility with victories, but two troublesome losing streaks continue.

Uncle Mo watched the games, checked out the polls before and after and read all the beat-writer breakdowns to figure out which SEC teams have the most momentum going for them right now.

Let’s see where everyone stands:

    1. Alabama: The highest-ranked SEC team in the playoff poll has the most going for it after a 30-16 win over LSU. With UA dominating the run game on both sides of the ball, Florida is likely dreading that potential matchup. The Crimson Tide’s SEC West lead will be put to the test against a Mississippi State team climbing the ranks.
    2. Mississippi State: They lost to LSU in Week 2, but right now, the Bulldogs have more momentum than the Tigers. MSU notched its last two conference wins by outscoring its opponents (Kentucky and Missouri) 73-29 with QB Dak Prescott (52-of-75, 651 yards, 7 TD, INT; 27 rushes, 164 yards, 3 TD in last two games) leading the way.
    3. Florida: The Gators locked up the SEC East and kept their playoff hopes alive by avoiding a massive upset at the hands of Vanderbilt. Florida will represent the SEC East in Atlanta, and with one loss could be a playoff team, but it put forth a concerning performance in Week 10. UF closes out its road schedule at South Carolina this week.
    4. LSU: With only one loss, the Tigers can’t be counted out of winning the SEC West or more, but they no longer have control of their own destiny. LSU probably won’t be able to keep itself from paying attention to the Alabama-MSU score, but the Tigers should stay focused on trying to slow down the Hogs in Week 11.
    5. Arkansas: Four quarters just aren’t enough for the Razorbacks in high-scoring games against division rivals. Arkansas moved to 5-4 after a 53-52 dramatic upset of Ole Miss in overtime. Bret Bielema’s team was the laughingstock of the SEC West not too long ago, but could cause trouble for LSU this week.
    6. Tennessee: The Volunteers are above .500 (5-4) for the first time since Sept. 19 after taking care of business against South Carolina 27-24. UT should have no trouble gaining bowl eligibility against North Texas.
    7. Georgia: UGA is guaranteed to go bowling this year after a 27-3 win over Kentucky. Whether or not Mark Richt will be around to coach the bowl game depends on how much you trust anonymous sources with juicy rumors in Athens.
    8. Auburn: After a disappointing two months to start the season, Auburn pulled off a win worth celebrating with a 26-10 upset of Texas A&M at Kyle Field. The Tigers can only play spoiler in the SEC West, but will first try for bowl eligibility with a win over rival Georgia.
    9. Ole Miss: The Rebels are on the outside looking in of the SEC West race after coming out the loser of Saturday’s overtime thriller with Arkansas. Ole Miss is off this week, and if it can put rivalry aside, will be cheering for Mississippi State to knock off division leader Alabama.
    10. Vanderbilt: Derek Mason was close to getting his signature win at Vanderbilt as his Commodores’ defense rendered Florida unable to function on offense deep into the fourth quarter. A late shanked punt set up a go-ahead field goal, and the Gators escaped 9-7. If VU can put together the same kind of performance in Week 11, it could come out on top against Kentucky.
    11. South Carolina: Keeping it close has been the theme of the Shawn Elliott era in Columbia. The Gamecocks’ 21-point third quarter wasn’t enough against Tennessee in a 27-24 loss. USC is 3-6 on the year and needs to upset Florida this week to keep bowl eligibility hopes alive.
    12. Texas A&M: In four weeks, the Aggies have fallen from a 5-0 SEC West leader to a 6-3 also ran, with the latest loss (26-10) coming to struggling Auburn. TAMU gets a bounce-back game as easy as they come in Week 11: Western Carolina.
    13. Kentucky: A 4-1 start has gone south for the Wildcats with four straight losses. One would have thought UK might get an unfocused UGA with all the drama in Athens, but the Bulldogs cruised to a 27-3 victory. Kentucky will try to get back on track against Vanderbilt.
    14. Missouri: Disregarding the off-the-field, on-campus issues for rankings, Missouri is still a team heading in the wrong direction. The MU defense has managed to keep many games low scoring, but it couldn’t slow down Prescott and Mississippi State. The Tigers dropped their fourth straight SEC game 31-13 to the Bulldogs. Mizzou will try to get back on track against BYU in a neutral-site game in Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium.
