SEC Week 7 power rankings: Alabama, Georgia at top of class

Well, we know who the best two teams in the SEC are. As for everything else ... it's anybody's guess. Here's our best shot at the pecking order through seven weeks of action:

1. Alabama (7-0): During a week in which many of the top 10 were upset, Alabama did more than take care of business by dominating Arkansas 41-9 at home.

2. Georgia (7-0): It was a flawless performance, especially early on defense, but the Bulldogs responded well in the second half to win big 53-28 at home against Missouri.

3. Auburn (5-2): All that positive momentum after Clemson? Yeah, that's gone when you blow a 20-0 lead on the road at LSU.

4. Texas A&M (5-2): The wins might not be pretty, but the Aggies keep collecting them. The latest was a 19-17 victory at Florida. Kevin Sumlin's team is trending up.

5. LSU (5-2): The Tigers are back from the dead. Two consecutive SEC wins, the latest a 27-23 comeback win over Auburn, have the Tigers' confidence up.

6. South Carolina (5-2): Say what you want about Tennessee, but an SEC road win is an SEC road win, no matter how ugly. The Gamecocks' 15-9 victory over the Vols has them at 5-2.

7. Florida (3-3): Not even swampy green uniforms could save the Gators' struggling offense as it failed to put away Texas A&M at home.

8. Kentucky (5-1): The Wildcats were idle this week and return in Week 8 with a key road game at Mississippi State.

9. Mississippi State (4-2): After a bye week, BYU was just what the doctor ordered. Nick Fitzgerald got back to making big plays, scoring four TDs as State rolled to an easy W.

10. Ole Miss (3-3): It would have been easy to fold after blowout losses to Alabama and Auburn, but Ole Miss didn't, bouncing back to beat Vanderbilt 57-35 at home.

11. Vanderbilt (3-4): The Commodores can't seem to stop the bleeding. After a 3-0 start, they've allowed 199 points in four straight losses. They have a week off coming up to try to figure things out.

12. Arkansas (2-4): The Razorbacks fell to Alabama 41-9 and remain winless in SEC play (0-3). They've allowed 139 points in those three SEC losses.

13. Tennessee (3-3): Butch Jones is looking more and more like a lame-duck coach after following an embarrassing 41-0 loss at home to Georgia by losing a 15-9 stinker to South Carolina.

14. Missouri (1-5): The Tigers made their game against Georgia interesting for the better part of a half, keeping pace with the Bulldogs, but the defense simply couldn't hold up much beyond that in a 53-28 loss. Mizzou allowed 407 yards in the first half and 370 rushing yards in the game.
