The SEC, according to a number of college football analysts, is a little bit down this season.
Don't tell that to ESPN's Football Power Index poll, though.
The SEC has the top four teams in ESPN's latest FPI. Ole Miss, LSU, Georgia and Alabama - with a loss - make up the top four spots.
Here's the top 10.
Ole Miss, LSU and Georgia each have very good wins, so it's not that much of a surprise to see them in the top five. Alabama being No. 4, though, is pretty suspect.
Michigan State, with a home win against Oregon, isn't even in the top 10. That, also, is quite odd.
