14. South Carolina
Sorry Gamecocks, that valiant fight you put up at Michigan isn’t enough to keep you from dropping to the bottom after losing to a Wyoming team having an otherwise rough season.
Texas Southern has proved to be a tricky buy game for teams, so good for Georgia to take care of business against them.
12. Texas A&M
Beat Northwestern State this weekend. Not much else to say about them this week.
11. Ole Miss
They got out of a tricky game at Illinois State, now they should get through the rest of the non conference slate with 10 wins.
They have a shot to show this week they can still be a tough out without Darius Garland this week. If not, they’re staring at the bottom of the conference again.
The Tigers looked just fine against a couple of buy games. Now they face some tougher teams in Xavier and Illinois this week.
This weekend the Tide looked like who a lot of people thought they would be, beating Arizona after struggling for the majority of the start.
This is life with such an unexperienced team. Looked fantastic on the road against a bad Colorado State team, but couldn’t continue that momentum at home against a feisty Western Kentucky team.
The tough schedule isn’t helping the win loss record, but it should pay dividends during conference play. They took down West Virginia on a neutral court and nearly beat a top-10 Michigan State.
No movement for the Tigers, all they did this weekend was beat Incarnate Word.
4. Mississippi State
They just cruised on a neutral court against Clemson, the Bulldogs are looking like the real deal this season.
The Seton Hall loss isn’t great, but the top three are so much further ahead than the rest of the conference they aren’t dropping.
Auburn didn’t do anything wrong this weekend. Dayton is a decent win, but you didn’t beat the top ranked team on a neutral court. Sorry Tigers.
You beat No. 1 Gonzaga on a neutral court? You bet you’re getting the top spot in the conference.
