The Tennessee Volunteers rose while Georgia and Arkansas fell in the All for Tennessee SEC Power Rankings for Week Four of the 2016 college football season.
Well that was an interesting turn of events. The first weekend of mostly SEC games caused a major shake-up in the SEC Power Rankings, as we expected it would.
And news on Sunday caused a major shake-up in the entire conference.
The shake-ups started with Tennessee finally ending its 11-game losing streak to the Florida Gators. Then came the LSU Tigers firing Les Miles on Sunday after his team’s loss to the Auburn Tigers on the road.
So in a span of 24 hours, those two eras that have existed since 2005 came to an end.
Meanwhile, there is a clear-cut top tier right now in the SEC, and it has been narrowed down to three teams. All of them are undefeated.
There are three other one-loss teams who still have a lot to play for, and there are four two-loss teams that are still very dangerous.
Then there’s the bottom of the SEC, and it is a low bottom this year. The parity among mediocrity is truly a pathetic sight to behold.
We will break down all of these teams as well as celebrate Rocky Top’s rise. Vols fans are feeling pretty darn good about themselves right now.
So are a few other teams. And of course, with five games featuring two SEC teams this week, this list could change dramatically once again.
Here are the official All for Tennessee SEC Power Rankings following Week Four of the college football season.
