Vegas ranks 8 SEC teams in Top 25 for 2016
Vegas still has a lot of faith in the SEC’s ability to dominate the college football landscape.
According to the Simple Rating System published by The Golden Nugget, eight of the conference’s 14 teams were in the top-25 power rankings, more teams than any other conference.
Leading the poll was Alabama at No. 1, while LSU, Tennessee and Ole Miss all finished in the Top 10. Arkansas finished 26th on the list and would’ve been the conference’s ninth team.
Other teams from the SEC on this list Georgia, Auburn, Florida and Texas A&M.
These rankings must sit well with Booger McFarland, who stated earlier today that he believed six teams were capable of winning the SEC title this year.
The second-most popular conference in the SRS power rankings was the Pac-12, which had five teams make the cut.
Here’s where the SEC teams were ranked:
1. Alabama Crimson Tide
3. LSU Tigers
6. Tennessee Volunteers
10. Ole Miss Rebels
12. Georgia Bulldogs
20. Auburn Tigers
22. Florida Gators
24. Texas A&M
Just missed the cut:
26. Arkansas Razorbacks
28. Mississippi State
