SEC Network Getting Killed On Twitter For Showing Charleston Southern's FCS Ranking On Graphic

Charleston Southern ranked 8 in the FCS and Alabama ranked number 2 in the FBS.

Who said today was "Cupcake Saturday" in the SEC? South Carolina lost to The Citadel, Florida was taken to overtime by FAU, and Alabama is playing the No. 8 team in the nation. Well, technically. 9-1 Charleston Southern has that ranking in FCS play, and the SEC Network has decided to use it on the scorebug for today's game. As you can imagine, fans are both making fun of the decision, and chiming in about "SEC/Alabama bias."

Citadel is ranked in the same division as Charleston Southern, but ESPN didn't use Citadel's ranking. @SEC_Exposedpic.twitter.com/QRkJKhEpkL

Whether or not you want to call this bias or some kind of conspiracy, it is certainly a goofy decision. Alabama leads the game 21-0 in the first quarter.
