Week 1 Notes:

The SEC is Really, Really Good

OK, we all know the SEC is the powerhouse conference in the nation, but does anybody know just how loaded this conference is?

The SEC is so loaded that only two of their 14 teams lost on opening weekend, and those teams lost to ranked teams in the conference, those being South Carolina, thoroughly humiliated by Texas A&M, and Arkansas, losing expectedly to defending conference champion, Auburn, 45-21.

As for the Gamecocks, ranked at #9 preseason in the Downtown magazine rankings and in similar spots in the national polls, they were handed their hats by the Aggies, who blew them away, 52-28, on the Gamecocks' home field.

Florida was the one SEC team that did not play over college football's weekend #1, but other notable successes were LSU's comeback, 28-24, win over Wisconsin; Mississippi's mauling of Boise State, 35-13; Georgia's dominant second half in their 45-21 win over Clemson; and, Missouri's 38-18 victory over South Dakota State.

The highest-ranked of the SEC squads, Alabama, was hardly impressive in their 33-23 win over West Virginia, but, for now, they maintain their spot at #5 in our rankings.

Other losers from the preseason Top 25 included UCF (13), stunned in the final seconds by a gritty Penn State squad, 26-24, and the aforementioned Wisconsin (20), who had a big lead going into the fourth quarter, but came away losers due to not converting often enough on offense.

As for the rest of the Top Five, #1 Florida State came away scarred and bloodied, but victorious over a very good Oklahoma State team, 37-31. #2 Michigan State had no issues in their 45-7 romp over Jacksonville State, as expected. #3 Oklahoma handled Louisiana Tech with ease, 48-16 and #3 Oregon was simply all over South Dakota in a 62-13 win.

Making their first appearance in the rankings for 2014 are Penn State, Michigan and Texas A&M, at 20, 21 and 24, respectively.
