Power Rankings Mid-Season

Methodology behind the Power Ranking - I look at four things: who you have beaten and how you won, who you lost to and how did you lose, teams head to head record, and your most recent game. 
 
SEC was shaken up this weekend with the big upset of Auburn by Arkansas along with Florida-LSU and Georgia-Tennessee.  NO other conference can come close to matching the SEC 1-6, though the bottom 5 is very average.
SEC
1. Florida

Gators have passed every test they have faced with flying colors

2, Tennessee

Very impressive 2nd half in Athens vaults them to number two

3. Auburn

Beaten soundly at home; needs win against Florida this Saturday

4. Arkansas

Front runner in SEC West as only unbeaten

5. LSU

Killed themselves with turnovers in the Swamp; hopes of SECCG are gone

6. Georgia

Richt must decided who to go with at QB because neither will lead them to

7. South Carolina

Syvelle Newton has given them a new life on offense

8. Alabama

Was behind to Duke at home…. Bear Bryant would not impressed

9. Kentucky

Just can't break through in SEC East, but playing teams tough

10. Ole Miss

Starting to turn it around with two solid games in a row

11. Vanderbilt

Disappointing loss at Oxford for a team who looked like they had made strides

12. Miss St

May go win less in SEC this season

 

ACC standings are starting to shake out a little bit, but both divisions have three teams with legit shots of going to Jacksonville.  Who thought that only 2 years into the full expansion that Miami and FSU would not middle of the road teams?
ACC

1. Clemson

Came from 14 behind to win by 10 at Wake Forest

2.Georgia Tech

Come from behind win over Maryland in a game they wouldn't have won in the past

3. Virginia Tech

Off this past week

4. NC State

Amato went from fired to contract extension in three week span

5. Boston College

Off this past week

6. Florida St

Rest of ACC has caught up to FSU and no longer fears their swagger

7. Miami

Covered the spread this past week… finally

8. Wake Forest

Blew a great chance to take the lead in Atlantic Division

9. Maryland

Tough loss at Georgia Tech; still having trouble stopping run

10. Virginia

Continues their losing streak to Big East

11. North Carolina

Only win remains 3 point victory over Furman

12. Duke

Held their own in Tuscaloosa for 3+ quarters
