Week 6 Power Rankings
Oct 31, 2016
by Perry Bergmann
Vanderbilt (0-5) - No change for the Commodores here. They had a bye week to prepare for their last match against Ole Miss. They’ll get this match at home, which should help in their effort to secure their first win of the season.
Points for: 19 (10th)
Points Against: 283 (10th
Auburn (0-5) - This was another tough loss for Auburn as they lose to Tennessee at home by 51 points. They now have to go on the road to Columbus to take on South Carolina. As with Vandy, this is Auburn’s last shot to get their first win of the season and avoid an O’fer.
Points for: 44 (9th)
Points Against: 212 (8th)
Mississippi State (1-4) - No change for Mississippi State as they had the week off. They travel to Athens this week in a “Dawg Fight” for pride.
Points for: 109 (7th)
Points Against: 183 (7th)
Ole Miss (2-3) - The Slim playoff hopes that the Rebs had were gutted by the Wildcats this weekend. Now they have nothing to play for but pride as they travel up to Nashville to take on the woebegone Vanderbilt Commodores.
Points for: 121 (5th)
Points Against: 242 (9th)
Georgia (2-3) - The Bulldogs of Georgia take advantage of the off week and Ole Miss losing as they raise up to 6th this week. They get the MadDawgs of Mississippi State in Athens this weekend as they attempt to reach .500 on the season
Points for: 89 (8th)
Points Against: 139 (6th)
Florida (3-2) X - There’s no change for the Gators this week as they took the week off in preparation for their “winner-take-all” final showdown with Alabama in Gainesville. They’ve clinched a playoff spot for the second year in a row, so now they’re playing the West Division crown and chance to host a playoff game in Gainesville.
Points for: 156 (4th)
Points Against: 132 (5th)
South Carolina (3-2) - The Gamecocks are in a strange position this season. With one week left to go in the regular season they are already out of contention for a playoff spot. This is the first time since the 2011-2012 season that they have failed to make the post-season. They get Auburn in Columbus this weekend to finish out their season.
Points for: 116 (6th)
Points Against: 76 (4th)
Alabama (4-1) X - Alabama’s offense has been so good this season that they had a bye week and they are still the top scoring offense in the SCRC by 55 points… They’ve got a road trip to Gainesville this weekend. They’ll play Florida in the de facto SCRC West Championship game.
Points for: 286 (1st)
Points Against: 31 (1st)
Tennessee (5-0) X- The Vols traveled to Auburn, AL for what turned out to be a tune-up game before they host the big one this weekend. Kentucky comes into Knoxville to play the biggest game of the regular season. It’s 1 vs 2 with the #1 seed on the line. Can we ask for anything better?
Points for: 231 (2nd)
Points Against: 38 (2nd)
Kentuckyn (5-0) x -The Wildcats have clinched a playoff spot for the first time and they’re playing for a chance to host a playoff match this week. They’ll travel to Knoxville to take on Tennessee. Can this cinderella season stay on the track for another couple of weeks?
Points for: 224 (3rd)
Points Against: 56 (3rd)
This is it, the last week of the season, the last week to try and improve records, the last week to make a push for better playoff seeds for some teams and for some teams they’re trying to hold on to their current positions. There have been some disappointments and some big surprises. Goals have been met and goals have faded away to the bitter taste of failure. For some, this will be the last regular season 15s match they will play for their respective clubs. This is a time to go out a winner, to go out on top, to put the club in a better spot than when they got there.
x: clinched playoff spot y: clinched Division z: #1 seed
