New, 1 comment

An impressive opening weekend with some quality victories gives the SEC six ranked teams in this week’s AP Top 25 poll

NCAA Football: SEC Championship-Alabama vs Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Week 1 of the 2021 College Football season is officially in the books, and we saw an action packed Labor Day weekend. A total of eight teams ranked in the preseason Top 25 lost, including three of them losing to unranked teams.

The Big Ten East imposed their will over the Big Ten West, winning three out of the four cross divisional match ups on opening weekend. The SEC also had a successful weekend, as the league finished with a 12-2 overall record. Alabama (over Miami), Georgia (over Clemson), and Ole Miss (over Louisville) delivered some of the key wins for the conference.

A total of six SEC teams are ranked in this week’s AP Top 25, with Alabama and Georgia coming in at No. 1 - No. 2.

Despite receiving five votes in the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Missouri Tigers are still not receiving any votes in the AP. The Kentucky Wildcats — Mizzou’s opponent on Saturday night, have received three votes in the latest poll.

A win on the road in Lexington on Saturday night might give the Tigers consideration for some receiving votes next week.
