With week one of the 2023 college football season wrapped up, here’s what the SEC standings currently look like.
Week one is done. That’s right, we’ve wrapped up the first week of college football action. Week one was busy and while there wasn’t much of importance happening in the Southeastern Conference, we did have some clear examples of SEC teams meeting expectations as others fell a bit short.
And that’s reflected a bit in the early SEC standings.
Unsurprisingly, SEC powerhouses like the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs were able to beat up on their overwhelmed opponents. The Crimson Tide crushed Middle Tennessee while Georgia handled UT-Martin.
The Ole Miss Rebels, Texas A&M Aggies, Auburn Tigers, Arkansas Razorbacks, Tennessee Volunteers, and our very own Mississippi State Bulldogs were among the teams that took care of things and put up a ton of points as well. None of those teams were perfect by any stretch of the imagination (with some having varying degrees, but they didn’t lose.
And this early in the season, that’s what matters.
Week 1 SEC standings: LSU Tigers stumble vs. FSU Seminoles
But not every team was so lucky.
The LSU Tigers didn’t really enjoy their meeting with the FSU Seminoles and the South Carolina Gamecocks stumbled against the North Carolina Tar Heels. Both of those losses coming in neutral site contests.
As a result, this is what the SEC standings looks like right now:
It’s still early in the year and there’s not really much we can truly take away from this right this instant. But it does demonstrate that this year might indeed have a ton of parity amongst the teams in the SEC’s middle class, which is something that many have expected.
It’ll be really interesting to see how the SEC standings shake out in a few weeks from now.
