1. LSU 2. Alabama 3. Texas A&M (Sumlin will always have this team competitive and exciting to watch) 4. Auburn (Hired the mastermind behind the Cam Newton offense, top 10 recruiting class again) 5. Arkansas (Hired a great coach in Bielema, he will run and play defense and win plenty of games SEC style) 6. Mississippi State (Getting more and more competitive each season) 7. Ole Miss (New head coach has turned this program around, 3 excruciating losses to LSU, A&M and Vandy had them oh so close to a 9-3 season) There is not a gimme game in this division anymore.
