In the next five SEC teams, three of them could be ranked No. 3. Jaxson Dart is playing so well for Lane Kiffin, that the SEC’s No. 3 could soon be the Ole Miss Rebels.

  • No. 5 Ole Miss Rebels (2-0)

Even with Tulane missing QB Michael Pratt, the Ole Miss 17-point win over Tulane was impressive. They have Georgia Tech at home on Saturday and will move to 3-0.

  • No. 4 Tennessee Vols (2-0)

My take is Jaxson Dart is better than Joe Milton. The Vols have not played anybody and the Vols did not impress beating Austin Peay (No. 163) 30-13. They should win on Saturday on the road against the Gators, but only because Florida looks to be in another down year. The Vols could come to Tuscaloosa in October undefeated, but so far I am not impressed.

  • No. 3 LSU Bengal Tigers (1-1)

After the second-half collapse against FSU, Brian Kelly said “We were not the team I thought we were.” Nothing was learned or gained by LSU in the 72-10 win over Grambling State (No. 243). So what they are, is still to be determined. There is just too much talent on the roster for LSU to not be a top team in the SEC. LSU goes to Starkville on Saturday.

  • No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide (1-1)

An abundance of weaknesses and failures doomed the Tide against Texas. Getting back to work is all that can be done after such a disappointing  Alabama football loss. Next up is USF in Tampa.

  • No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs (2-0)

The Bulldogs are another SEC team that has faced no worthy opponent. So far, they are the SEC’s best, but are they three-peatable? The Dawgs host South Carolina on Saturday.

Next. Where does Alabama go from here?. dark

The SEC schedule toughens up some in week three. After week four, there will have been enough SEC vs. SEC play to better understand how to rank the teams.
