    1. KENTUCKY (6-1, 2-1 SEC) ? The Wildcats beat the No. 1 team in the nation. That supersedes their loss at South Carolina. Kentucky could have buckled a few times, but it never did. Shame on the SEC for fining Kentucky $50,000 for its post-game celebration. This was Kentucky. It beat a No. 1 team for the first time at home and for the first time since beating Ole Miss in 1964 in Jackson, Miss. Speaking of Mississippi, shouldn't Ole Miss be fined for the debris thrown from the stands after it lost to Alabama? Last Week: 3rd.
    2.LSU (6-1, 3-1) ? As bad as the Tigers played on defense and as questionable as some of the decisions were on offense ? not playing Ryan Perrilloux more at quarterback and not playing tailback Charles Scott after he played so well in the first half ? LSU still almost pulled it out. The Tigers will handle Auburn comfortably by two touchdowns. Last Week: 1st.
    3. SOUTH CAROLINA (6-1, 3-1) ? The Gamecocks had their off week last week with a lackluster win over a bad North Carolina team. Last Week: 2nd.
    4.AUBURN (5-2, 3-1) ? One of the better coaching jobs in the SEC this side of Steve Spurrier this season is being turned in by Tommy Tuberville. He's winning with little or no offense. Last Week: 4th.
    5.FLORIDA (4-2, 2-2) ? The Gators have had an extra week to get ready for Kentucky, which used its extra time last week to out-game plan LSU. Last Week: 5th.
    6. TENNESSEE. (4-2, 2-1) ? The last time coach Phillip Fulmer went up against Alabama coach Nick Saban, Fulmer's Vols were No. 2 in the nation and needed a win over No. 21 LSU to play for their second BCS national championship in three years. Saban lost starting quarterback Rohan Davey, but he still beat Fulmer 31-20. Fulmer will get even this time around. Last Week: 6th.
    7.GEORGIA (5-2, 3-2) ? Hats off to Georgia coach Mark Richt for pulling his tasteless players off the Vanderbilt "V" after the Bulldogs' fortunate 20-17 win over the Commodores on a last-second field goal. Celebrating a win over Vanderbilt like it's the national championship ? classless. Last Week: 7th.
    8.ALABAMA (5-2, 3-1) ? Alabama wins another controversial game and learns a valuable lesson. Never take your helmet off in Oxford, Miss., despite its flowery literary history. Last Week: 8th.
    9.MISSISSIPPI STATE (4-3, 1-3) ? The Bulldogs played well in losing to Tennessee and continue to look like a solid team. Last Week: 9th.
    10.ARKANSAS (3-3, 0-3) ? The Hogs hope they cleaned up the field after Ole Miss' loss to Alabama last week. Last Week: 10th.
    11.VANDERBILT (3-3, 1-3) ? The Commodores are going to upset an SEC team before this thing is done. Last Week: 11th.
    12. OLE MISS (2-5, 0-4) ? Apparently, Showtime's "Red Shoe Diaries" is back in syndication in Oxford. Either that or a Rebelette went home barefootin' because a pair of red high heels was found on the Vaught-Hemingway Stadium turf along with whiskey and vodka bottles following the Confederates' controversial loss to the Crimson Tide on a reverse review. Sounds like a novel. And the Grove looks so peaceful! So let me get this straight, you can throw a whiskey bottle on the field and not get fined. But if you walk on the field and don't do anything wrong, you're fined $50,000? Doesn't the SEC have enough money already? Last Week: 12th.
