Alabama and Georgia will play in Atlanta for the SEC championship.

NCAA Football: Alabama at Tennessee Bryan Lynn-USA TODAY Sports

It was winner take all in Lexington for SEC East, but the Cats came up short as Georgia will make the trip to Atlanta for a chance to win their second SEC crown in a row.

Also, the SEC West was up for grabs in Baton Rouge, but the Crimson Tide rolled in there and clinched the division with another impressive performance.

#1 Alabama Crimson Tide (9-0, 6-0)

Last week: #1

Alabama continued to prove that they are the best team in the country as they went on the road to LSU, pitched a shutout, and came away with the 29-0 win over the Tigers.

Now this has clinched the SEC West for the Tide and they will now be headed to Atlanta in a few weeks to face the SEC East winner Georgia Bulldogs.

Week 11: Vs. Mississippi State

#2 Georgia Bulldogs (8-1, 6-1)

Last Week: #3

Well, the Bulldogs went into Lexington and took it to the Cats as they rolled to a 34-17 victory. Their offense made it look easy against the tough Kentucky defense and showed that they are on a completely different level.

Now the Bulldogs will have a chance to play for their second SEC title in a row when they travel to Atlanta to face Bama.

Week 11: Vs. Auburn

#3 LSU Tigers (7-2, 4-2)

Last week: #2

It was a tough week for the Tigers as they had to face the force that is Alabama with the West up for grabs and came up short losing 29-0.

Now the Tigers will have to regroup and get ready to make a road trip that should get them back on track and add another SEC win to their record.

Week 11: @Arkansas

#4 Kentucky Wildcats (7-2, 5-2)

Last week: #4

Yes, the Cats lost and didn’t have a very good defensive performance. However, they lost to a very talented Georgia team and several teams close behind them also lost keeping the Cats in the top 4.

The Cats showed more of an offense in the second half and it will be interesting to see if they can build off that going forward and get back on the winning track and have a real shot at finishing the year 10-2 and 5-2 in the SEC.

Week 11: @Tennessee

#5 Auburn Tigers (6-3, 3-3)

Last Week: #6

The Tigers have had a roller coaster season to say the least and they came off the BYE week and defeated #20 Texas A&M 28-24.

Now the Tigers will have a huge test to see what they are made of and will have a great chance to make a big statement.

Week 11: @Georgia

#6 Mississippi State Bulldogs (6-3, 2-3)

Last week: #8

A week after beating Texas A&M, the Bulldogs faced off with Louisiana Tech and took care of business getting themselves bowl eligible and now they will have a chance to make a huge statement next week.

After a shaky middle of the season, it looks like the Bulldogs are starting to find their footing again.

Week 11: @Alabama

#7 South Carolina Gamecocks (5-3, 4-3)

Last week: #9

After a close last week against Tennessee, USC came back this week and beat Ole Miss 48-44 on the road to get within one win of clinching a bowl game.

It was a big showing by the offense, but the defense will have to be much improved going forward.

Now they will have a chance to make another statement when they make yet another road trip.

Week 11: @Florida

#8 Missouri Tigers (5-4, 1-4)

Last week: #10

What a turnaround for the Tigers offense a week after not getting a single first down in the second half against Kentucky. Drew Lock threw for 250 yards and 3 TDs on their way to dominating the Gators 38-17.

A very favorable schedule to close out the year gives the Tigers an excellent shot at finishing the season on a very high note.

Week 11: Vs. Vanderbilt

#9 Florida Gators (6-3, 4-3)

Last week: #5

It has been a disastrous two weeks for a Gators team that was in the thick of the SEC East conversation just a couple weeks ago.

After getting destroyed in Jacksonville by Georgia, the Gators handed Missouri their first SEC victory of the season as they lost 38-17 at HOME.

Now, they will have to face an SEC team that is red hot and coming off two wins that they had to have.

Week 11: Vs. South Carolina

#10 Texas A&M Aggies (5-4, 3-3)

Last week: #7

A week after losing on the road to Mississippi State the Aggies were not able to bounce back with a tough road win as they fell short to Auburn 28-24.

Baring a complete disaster, the Aggies should be able to become bowl eligible with favorable opponents coming up before their tough matchup with LSU Week 13.

Week 11: Vs. Ole Miss

#11 Tennessee Volunteers (4-5, 1-4)

Last week: #11

It wasn’t an impressive showing for the Vols this week, but they were able to get the job done against Charlotte 14-3 and now put themselves in a position to clinch a bowl game if they can get two wins against SEC opponents.

Week 11: Vs. Kentucky

#12 Vanderbilt Commodores (4-5, 1-4)

Last week: #13

It was a BYE week for Vandy, but they will have a shot at getting bowl eligible if they can find a way to come away with two SEC wins in the next few weeks.

However, it will not be easy for Vandy, so it will be interesting to see if they can pull it off as the season comes to a close.

Week 11: @Missouri

#13 Ole Miss Rebels (5-4, 1-4)

Last week: #12

The Rebels had an extra week to get ready for this week, but they came up short 48-44 in the shootout with South Carolina.

However, it doesn’t get any easier for the Rebels as now they have to get ready to face a talented team on the road in one of the toughest places to play.

Week 11: @Texas A&M

#14 Arkansas Razorbacks (2-7, 0-5)

Last week: #14

Good news, Arkansas didn’t lose this week!

Unfortunately, it was a BYE.

Now they will have one more week to get ready for a matchup with LSU and it will be a steep mountain to climb if they are going to make that a game.

Week 11: Vs. LSU
