Four SEC teams crack Top 10 in ESPN power rankings
Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low
The college football pundits at ESPN have spoken, and the 2009 preseason power rankings are out.
Florida is No. 1, while Alabama checks in at No. 5, Ole Miss at No. 8 and LSU at No. 10. Georgia is No. 14.
Arkansas also received votes (5), and South Carolina received a vote. Wonder who voted for the Gamecocks?
For more on that, here's how everybody on the panel voted, including yours truly. Maybe the guy voting for the Gamecocks made them a ceremonial pick sort of like the Head Ball Coach used to every year with Duke in the preseason coaches' poll.
OK, it was me. Here's my ballot:
2. Southern California
5. Ohio State
6. Virginia Tech
7. Ole Miss
9. Penn State
11. Oklahoma State
13. Georgia Tech
16. Boise State
19. Florida State
22. North Carolina
25. South Carolina
