Good luck making sense of the SEC now. Mississippi State is the clear No. 1, but after that? Ole Miss beat Alabama, but would the Rebels be favored over the Tide now on a neutral field?

Edward Aschoff, Jeff Barlis, David Ching, Sam Khan Jr., Chris Low, Greg Ostendorf and Alex Scarborough contributed to these rankings.
