SEC with seven in latest AP Top 25
With two weeks of the college football season in the books, the SEC still has solid representation in the Associated Press Top 25 and even added a new team to the rankings.
Seven SEC teams are in the newest version of the poll, with idle Alabama remaining at No. 1, receiving 57 first-place votes. Ole Miss (2-0) is the new team in the poll. The Rebels debut at No. 25 after opening the season with victories at Vanderbilt and, on Saturday, at FCS foe Southeast Missouri State.
Texas A&M (2-0), coming off a blowout win over FCS power Sam Houston State, moved up to No. 6 six days before they host the defending national champion Crimson Tide. LSU (2-0) moved up a spot to No. 8 after crushing UAB 56-17, fueled by Zach Mettenberger's five touchdown passes.
Georgia (1-1) won the marquee SEC matchup of Week 2, beating South Carolina 41-30. The reward for the Bulldogs is a two-spot jump to No. 9. The penalty for South Carolina (1-1) is a tumble of seven spots to No. 13.
Florida, which struggled offensively against Miami and lost 21-16, dropped six spots to No. 18.
Tennessee (2-0), which crushed Western Kentucky 52-20, received one vote in the poll a week ahead of their game against No. 2 Oregon.
