It was a good week in the SEC, and it appears that order has been restored to the conference.

LSU came back this week with a bang under interim head coach Ed Orgeron, thumping Missouri, 42-7.

Per the usual, No. 23 Florida won an uncomfortably close battle over Vanderbilt, while Alabama extended its streak over Kentucky in Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Auburn, Arkansas and Ole Miss all dominated non-conference opponents. Tennessee squeaked out a close one over Georgia, thanks to a thrilling Hail Mary from Josh Dobbs to Jauan Jennings.

Kentucky, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Vanderbilt were all still left out of the SDS projections. In fact, the Gamecocks and Commodores were left out of everyone’s projections.

The Wildcats got a single vote from ESPN, while the Bulldogs got two from ESPN. Missouri got a nod from everyone except for ESPN analyst Mark Schlabach.
