The 2021 season ended with Georgia beating Alabama in an all-SEC College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

Both the Tide and Bulldogs figure to be forces to be reckoned with in 2022, as well, checking in atop many way-too-early 2022 rankings.

This week, released its 2022 top 25. As you can see below, Alabama takes the top spot, with 5 other SEC squads included on the list:

  • No. 1 — Alabama
  • No. 3 — Georgia
  • No. 4 — Texas A&M
  • No. 17 — Arkansas
  • No. 18 — Kentucky
  • No. 24 — Tennessee

Ole Miss might have something to say about being left out of the top 25 when the 2022 season kicks off. But, for now, this is a good look at where things stand with spring practices approaching in the next few weeks.
