Power Poll – Week 4

1) Auburn Tigers (Overall 2-0, Conference 1-0) [Last week 1] – The defending conference champs take a Big 12 road trip to tough Kansas State. Until proven otherwise, I’m not sure this offense can be stopped with Nick Marshall at the helm.

2) Texas A&M Aggies (3-0, 1-0) [2] – The Aggies are a legitimate top 10 ten team right now.

3) Missouri Tigers (3-0, 0-0) [7] – Central Florida isn’t an easy out, so the Tigers’ second half dominance of the Knights was particularly impressive.

4) Alabama Crimson Tide (3-0, 0-0) [4] – The preseason is over and now we’ll start to see just how good this team can be.

5) LSU Tigers (3-0, 0-0) [5] – Like Alabama, the Tigers have a few question marks. Their defense, however, may be a bit better than the Tide’s.

6) Ole Miss Rebels (3-0, 1-0) [8] – The Rebel Black Bears are ranked in the top 10 this week. So goes Bo Wallace, so goes the RBBs.

7) South Carolina Gamecocks (2-1, 1-1) [10] – The Georgia game proved the Gamecocks can win their remaining games. Will they? I doubt it.

8) Georgia Bulldogs (1-1, 1-1) [3] – I guess Clemson wasn’t as good as Dawg fans and Kirk Herbstreit thought.

9) Florida Gators (2-0, 1-0) [6] – Florida escaped with an overtime win over Kentucky. What kind of message will that send to these Gators? We’ll find out in Tuscaloosa this week.

9) Mississippi State Bulldogs (3-0, 0-0) [9] – The Dogs continue their typical early season roll.

10) Arkansas Razorbacks (2-1, 0-1) [12] – The Hogs scored and impressive win at Texas Tech. Will they have the same success running the ball against SEC defenses?

11) Tennessee Volunteers (2-1, 0-0) [11] – The Vols are still a season or two away.

13) Kentucky Wildcats (2-1, 0-1) [13] – The ‘Cats fought hard in Gainesville, but lost a heartbreaker to the Gators. Mark Stoops has this team ahead of schedule.

14) Vanderbilt Commodores (1-2, 0-1) [14] – I’m still shocked the ‘Dores scored 34 points, eve if it was against Massachusetts.
