LSU stopped the bleeding, Vandy is still bleeding, Florida has no offense and Auburn has plenty.  Plus Brett B’s seat is now hotter than Kevin’s in College Station.  Here’s this week SEC Rankings.  

1. Alabama – The Tide did not look near as good as they had the last two weeks when they looked invincible.  But a win is a win.  Last week Texas A&M 27-19/ this week vs Arkansas.
2. Georgia –  Nick and Sonny are reminding us of some of the most recent RB tandems in a backfield.  You may stop one.  But not both.  Last week beat Vanderbilt 45-14/ this week vs Missouri.
3. Florida- Gators Fans have to be frustrated losing to an LSU Team that  gave up a ton of yards and 24 points to Troy.  And all they got was 16.  Last week lost LSU16-17/ this week vs Texas A&M.  
4. Auburn – The Tigers are starting to gel.  A win down da bayou will be huge for the Plainsmen!  Last week beat Ole Miss / this week @ LSU.  
5. Kentucky –  A narrow win over the Tigers keeps the Cats from Lexington alive in the SEC East.  Last week beat Missouri 30-24 / this week vs Missouri.  
6. Texas A&M – Kevin Sumlin has quieted his critics.  But a loss at Florida would have them screaming again.  Last week lost to Alabama 19-27/ this week @ Florida.
7. Mississippi State – MSU will look to get back on track this week with a non-SEC home game.  Last week BYE/ this week vs BYU.
8. Vanderbilt –  Talk about a chance of things four weeks ago Vandy  was 3-0 and hosting Bama in a huge game.  And now?  Oh well!  Last week lost to Georgia 14-45/ this week @ Ole Miss.  
9. LSU -  The Tigers showed a lot of heart in a must need win over the Gators.  Now LSU can completely flip their season from doom and gloom to the future is bright with a win over Auburn.  Last week beat Florida 17-16/ this week vs Auburn.
10. South Carolina –  A big win over Arkansas stops the Mushchamp bashing for now.  Doesn’t it?  Last week beat Arkansas 48-22/ this week @ Tennessee.  
11. Tennessee – The best  thing about the Vols season so far is that it’s almost halfway over!  Last week BYE/ this week vs South Carolina.
12. Arkansas - Goodbye Brett songs will start being made after a 22-48 loss to South Carolina and now on the road to Bama?  Last week beat South Carolina / this week @ Alabama  
13. Ole Miss – The Rebels will struggle to win another SEC Game this season.  This week may be their best chance.  Last week lost to Auburn 23-44/ this week vs Vanderbilt  
14. Missouri - They fought hard but still lost.  That’s Missouri this season. Last week lost to Kentucky 24-30/ this week @ Georgia.
