Power Rankings Week 14

SEC

1. LSU
2. Georgia
3. Florida
4. Tennessee
5. Auburn
6. Arkansas
7. Kentucky
8. Miss St
9. Alabama
10. South Carolina
11. Vanderbilt
12. Ole Miss

I know… having LSU still at number 1 is blasphemy after they lost their second game. But they have lost two games in a combined 6 OT. Sure, Georgia has greatly closed the margin, but I still have LSU at number one… for now. Aforementioned, Georgia just keeps rolling; Mark Richt best coach in the country from mid-October on. Tennessee has showed me a lot these past two weeks. You could say they were lucky to win both of those games and you would be right. You could also say they made the plays when they had to win those games and you would be right. The win over LSU may have been Houston Nutt’s last game at Arkansas, but if so then he went out beating the number 1 team on the road. Depth and schedule finally caught up with Kentucky. Alabama played valiantly, but not even the great Nick Saban can over come poor QB play. Ocean floor meet South Carolina. The Gamecocks lost that game when CB Carlos Thomas went out with an injury.

ACC
1. Virginia Tech

2. Boston College
3. Clemson
4. Virginia
5. Wake Forest

6. Florida State

7. Georgia Tech
8. Maryland
9. NC State
10. North Carolina
11. Miami
12. Duke

Virginia Tech quieted their commonwealth neighbors for another year. Is Boston College really looking forward to a rematch? Matt Ryan can’t play like he did a few weeks back against the Hokies. The Danny Ford calls may have quieted a little bit after Clemson’s victory over South Carolina. Wake was impressive in their thrashing of Vanderbilt in Nashville; the ACC has to take them when they can get them vs the SEC. Florida State broke Tim Tebow’s hand…too bad they couldn’t break their losing streak against the Gators. Georgia Tech lost their 7th straight to rival Georgia in a woulda, coulda, shoulda game that was the last for a beleaguered Chan Gailey. Maryland rose up and snapped the Wolfpack in shutout win on the road to get the bowl committees excited. Duke played North Carolina close once again, but could not pull it out. The football season ended for these two a few weeks back when basketball started.

3. LSU
4. Georgia
