SEC POWER RANKINGS

(1) Vanderbilt 

Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter have been dominant with a combined 10-0 record on the mound as Dominic Keegan returns to the lineup for the Commodores. 

(2) Miss. State

This deep and talented pitching staff leads SEC in strikeouts and shutouts. A balanced offense makes this a dangerous team.

(3) Arkansas 

The Razorbacks continue to tinker with their starting rotation: Patrick Wicklander replaces Peyton Pallette this weekend at MSU. 

(4) Ole Miss

The Rebels are 3-0 in SEC for the first time since 2004. Doug Nikhazy returns to the mound after missing two starts. 

(5) Florida

The Gators looked like the preseason No. 1 team in the nation in the sweep over Texas A&M. A trio of freshmen led the way on offense. 

(6) Tennessee 

Tennessee looks to open league play with two series wins for the first time since 2001. Solid pitching and Liam Spence at the top of the order makes this a team worth watching. 

(7) LSU 

Landon Marceaux has not allowed an earned run thus season and moves into the No. 1 spot in rotation, while the bullpen showed improvement last week. The Tigers play outside Louisiana for the first time this weekend.

(8) South Carolina 

The Gamecocks snapped a 6-game losing streak with comeback win at Vanderbilt. DH Wes Clarke leads NCAA with 11 home runs.

(9) Texas A&M 

The Aggies have lost four straight and host Georgia in crucial early season series. 

(10) Georgia 

The Bulldogs lead SEC with six walk-off wins this season. The pitching staff has been solid thus far. 

(11) Alabama

The Crimson Tide managed only two runs in two losses at Arkansas. Alabama has lost 15 of its last 16 SEC series. 

(12) Kentucky 

The Wildcats have built a nice record against a not-so-difficult schedule. UK plays on the road for the first time this weekend. 

(13) Auburn 

The Tigers have the second-worst ERA in the SEC. AU has allowed 41 runs in its last three Sunday games.

(14) Missouri 

The only SEC team with a losing record this season.
