Here are the latest SEC Power Rankings heading into the final weekend of the regular season.
14. Vanderbilt (4-7)
Last week: 12th
The skinny: Vandy must beat Tennessee on Saturday to avoid a winless season in SEC play; it would be the Commodores’ second 0-8 record in the SEC in four seasons.
13. Tennessee (4-7)
Last week: 13th
The skinny: Tennessee must beat Vandy on Saturday to avoid a winless season; it would be the Vols’ first winless season in SEC play in their history. In addition, Tennessee is trying to avoid its first-ever eight-loss season.
12. Florida (4-6)
Last week: 14th
The skinny: Florida snapped a five-game losing streak with a dominating performance against UAB. Still, both Florida and Florida State will have losing records when they meet Saturday; it’ll be the first time since 1959 that the teams will meet when both have losing records.
11. Arkansas (4-7)
Last week: 11th
The skinny: By almost all accounts, the Bret Bielema era will be over at Arkansas sometime this weekend, maybe even Friday.
10. Missouri (6-5)
Last week: 10th
The skinny: Mizzou has won five in a row. Granted, the Tigers have beaten no one with a winning record in that span, but, hey, five wins in a row is five wins in a row.
9. Ole Miss (5-6)
Last week: 9th
The skinny: It’s Egg Bowl time. And a win in the Egg Bowl can put some salve on what has been a long and depressing year for the Rebels.
8. Kentucky (7-4)
Last week: 8th
The skinny: UK hasn’t won eight games in a season since 2007. Extra satisfaction would be that the eighth victory came at the expense of hated rival Louisville.
