The order of SEC teams remained unchanged in the Week 13 edition of the AP Top 25 rankings, just with some movement in the positioning.
The SEC has six teams in the latest AP rankings with five of those teams in the Top 15 of the poll and one team hanging on by a thread.
Georgia (11-0) remains the No. 1 team in the rankings after a dominant 38-10 victory over Tennessee in Knoxville on Saturday afternoon. The Vols threw the first punch behind an opening-play touchdown but the Bulldogs were able to regroup quickly and finish with a lopsided win over the Volunteers.
Alabama (10-1) stayed put at No. 8 as the Crimson Tide still sit behind Texas with the Longhorns’ early-season head-to-head victory over the Tide looming large. Alabama cruised to a victory over Chattanooga, 66-10, on Saturday in Tuscaloosa.
Missouri (9-20 is now an AP Top 10 team as the Tigers move up one spot to No. 10 in the rankings. Missouri and Florida had a slugfest on Saturday night in Columbia that resulted in a game-winning field goal from the Tigers with only a few seconds left on the clock.
Ole Miss (9-2) also moved up one spot to No. 12 in the rankings after the Rebels rolled to a 33-point win over LA-Monroe in Oxford.
On a similar note, LSU (8-3) also moved up one spot to No. 14 in the rankings after a 56-14 win over Georgia State in a game that saw quarterback Jayden Daniels rack up more than 500 total yards and eight touchdowns in Baton Rouge. Daniels and the Tigers are certainly making his Heisman case known despite the fact that the Tigers have three losses on the season.
And, lastly, Tennessee (7-4) rounds out the SEC’s ranked teams as the Vols barely hang on to a No. 25 spot after back-to-back losses against Missouri and Georgia. The Vols fell four spots but will have an opportunity to rebound this Saturday against in-state rival Vanderbilt in the regular season finale.
