SEC Power Rankings for Week 13

It is starting to look like it will be Alabama vs. Florida in Atlanta.

Alabama once again proved that they are the team to beat in the SEC, while Florida took another step towards a spot in Atlanta to face the Tide for the SEC title.

#1 Alabama Crimson Tide (7-0)

Last week: #1

The Crimson Tide took the field for the first time in 3 weeks, but they didn’t miss a beat as they led this one throughout in a 63-3 win over Kentucky.

The Tide did a lot of damage on the ground as they rushed for 226 yards and 5 TDs in the blowout win.

After a game that was sort of a retune after the long hiatus, the Tide will get ready for the Iron Bowl.

Week 13: vs Auburn

#2 Texas A&M Aggies (5-1)

Last week: #2

The Aggies once again were unable to take the field due to issues with Coronavirus.

However, the Aggies have a legitimate path to the college football playoff if they can take care of business once they return to action and Alabama rolls to the SEC title.

Week 13: vs LSU

#3 Florida Gators (6-1)

Last week: #3

The Gators were looking to continue their very impressive 2020 season, and Kyle Trask looked to continue his battle for the Heisman trophy.

Both of those things happened, as Trask threw for 383 yards and 3TDs in a 38-17 win over Vanderbilt.

Now, the Gators will look to take care of business the rest of the season on their way to the SEC title game.

Week 13: vs Kentucky

#4 Georgia Bulldogs (5-2)

Last week: #4

The Bulldogs faced off with one of the SEC’s worst teams in Mississippi State and were barley able to come out with the win.

Despite JT Daniels throwing for 401 yards and 4TDs the Bulldogs struggled to close this one out on the defensive side as they won this one 31-24.

While the college football playoffs are out of the picture, the Bulldogs need to finish the season strong in case Florida is unable to take care of business they could land in the SEC title game.

Week 13: @ South Carolina

#5 Auburn Tigers (5-2)

Last week: #5

The Tigers haven’t had the season that everyone expected them to, but they are still having a very solid season.

That continued again this week as they were able to take down Tennessee 30-17 behind 220 yards and a TD from QB Bo Nix.

Auburn now sets their sights on their biggest rival as they get started preparing for the Iron Bowl.

Week 13: @ Alabama

#6 LSU Tigers (3-3)

Last week: #8

The Tigers haven’t been able to take the field in recent weeks due to issues with COVID-19, but they returned to action this week and found themselves in a battle.

The Tigers had solid QB play from TJ Finley who threw for 271 yards and 2TDs in the 27-24 win over Arkansas.

Defending their national championship from 2019 hasn’t gone according to plan, but the Tigers will have a chance to make a huge statement next week and completely change the look of their season.

Week 13: @ Texas A&M

#7 Arkansas Razorbacks (3-5)

Last week: #7

The Razorbacks had another very close game slip away in a 27-24 loss to LSU. A late touchdown by LSU followed by a missed game tying FG attempt from the Razorbacks broke the hearts of Arkansas.

Despite the tough loss, Feleipe Franks had another solid night throwing for 339 yards and a TD while also leading the team in rushing with 43 yards and a TD.

Arkansas will look to bounce back next week in a game that will be very winnable.

Week 13: @ Missouri

#8 Kentucky Wildcats (3-5)

Last week: #6

Going into the week the Cats knew they were facing an uphill battle taking on the No. 1 team in the nation on the road.

However, I don’t believe many thought it would be a 63-3 blowout loss to Alabama.

Unfortunately, the Cats were without several key players and it showed as they continuously made crucial drive killing mistakes that allowed the Tide to blow it open.

Now the Cats have to put this one behind them as they get ready for a tough road trip to face Florida.

Week 13: @ Florida

#9 Missouri Tigers (3-3)

Last week: #11

It was a low scoring defensive battle for the Tigers in their matchup with South Carolina and they were able to get the 17-10 win.

The Tigers did all of their scoring in the first half leading it 17-0 at the break. That was followed by just allowing the Gamecocks to score 10 unanswered in the second half but it was enough to get the road win.

Missouri will be in for a tough battle next week when the most surprising team of the season comes to town.

Week 13: vs Arkansas

#10 Ole Miss Rebels (3-4)

Last week: #10

The Rebels were scheduled to face one of the best teams in the country this week. However, due to issues with Coronavirus, their game with Texas A&M had to be postponed.

The Rebels will look to get back on the winning track next week in a very winnable home matchup.

Week 13: vs Mississippi State

#11 Tennessee Volunteers (2-5)

Last week: #9

After a 2-0 start to the 2020 season, the Vols have been an absolute train wreck as they lost their 5th in a row in a 30-17 loss to Auburn.

The Vols quarterback play continues to be the issue as they used two different QBs in their efforts to get a big road win.

Tennessee has a lot of issues, but it all starts at QB and that has been a problem for them all season long.

Week 13: @ Vanderbilt

#12 Mississippi State Bulldogs (2-5)

Last week: #13

The Bulldogs had a very tough matchup this week taking on Georgia and had a real chance to get a massive win in a 31-24 loss.

Mississippi State has struggled with offense a lot this year, but Will Rogers helps fuel a big night against one of the nation’s best defensive teams as he threw for 336-yards and a TD.

However, the Bulldogs’ defense faced a revived Georgia offense that was able to pass for 401 yards and 4TDs resulting in a tough loss for State.

Week 13: @ Ole Miss

#13 South Carolina Gamecocks (2-6)

Last week: #12

South Carolina has been a dumpster fire in recent weeks as they fired their head coach and had several key players decide to opt out of the rest of the season.

All of those factors were obvious on Saturday in their 17-10 loss to Missouri. It was a defensive battle as the Gamecocks allowed 17 first half points and held the Tigers in check the second half.

However, their offense couldn’t get things going resulting in a narrow home loss.

Week 13: vs Georgia

#14 Vanderbilt Commodores (0-7)

Last week: #14

The Commodores once again were on the losing side in a 38-17 loss to Florida at home.

However, the Commodores were in a great spot in the first half and held a 2nd quarter lead over the Gators before things fell apart.

Vandy will look to get their first win of the season when they face Tennessee.
