While that game is sure to excited SEC fans, the game of the week is the battle between the #2 Alabama  and #8 Michigan – aptly dubbed the Cowboy Classic.  Wolverine fans in Ann Arbor are expecting big things this year.  A big win over a tough Alabama team and Michigan would immediately become a National Championship contender.  The Crimson Tide will need a convincing win to show why they deserve the #1 ranking over USC.

2012 Preseason SEC Football Rankings

2012 SEC Football RankingsIn the second edition of our college football conference previews we will be looking at the powerful SEC.  The Southeastern Conference is hands down the best football conference in all of the NCAA as demonstrated by the fact that a team from the conference has won the BCS National Championship every year since 2006.  The list includes the Florida Gators in 2006, the  LSU Tigers in 2007,the Florida Gators in 2008, the Alabama Crimson Tide in 2009, the Auburn Tigers in 2010, and the Alabama Crimson Tide again in 2011.  The 2012-2013 season should be another dominant year for the SEC as several teams are legitimate National Championship contenders with 5 teams in the top 15 in the nation.  Currently, Alabama is ranked #1, LSU is #3, Georgia #7, South Carolina #8, and Arkansas #13.

2012 SEC Football Rankings

1A.  Alabama Crimson Tide

It’s really hard to make a call between Alabama and LSU heading into this year.  Both teams lost a ton of talent to the NFL and both team have plenty of blue chip recruits ready to step in.  Considering the fact that LSU wet the bed in the BCS National Championship game we will give Bama the slight edge.  Alabama also benefits by having junior QB AJ McCarron back to lead the offense.

1B.  LSU Tigers

One could make the case that LSU is the more talented team heading into the 2012-13 football season.  Their defense should be as good as ever.  However, the Tigers will be relying on the inexperienced Zach Mettenberger to lead the offense.  That means they will likely lean heavy on the ground game.  If LSU is going to win a National Title this season they are going to need a more balanced offensive attack.

3. Georgia Bulldogs

The Georgia Bulldogs were one of the few SEC teams not raided by the NFL draft.  All major pieces of the offense will be back this season including QB Aaron Murray, RB Isaiah Crowell, WR Malcolm Mitchell, WR Michael Bennett, WR Marlon Brown, and WR Tavarres King. The biggest questions come from the offensive line as they will lose the services of OL Cordy Glenn, OL Ben Jones, and OL Justin Anderson. They will also return 10 starters on defense.

4. South Carolina Gamecocks

Steve Spurrier has the Gamecocks getting better and better each year.  South Carolina seems poised for another big year as they return the best running back in the nation with  Marcus Lattimore and promising young quarterback Connor Shaw.  The only thing holding SC back is their tough schedule!

5.   Arkansas Razorbacks

Offensively, the Razorbacks are ready to compete with the likes of Alabama and LSU for a SEC Championship.  While the defense has been steadily improving they are not quite there yet.  Thrown in the fact that Arkansas plays in the SEC West and you have the #5 team in the SEC.

6.  Missouri Tigers

Missouri is a newcomer to the SEC and will likely take some time getting used to the defensive minded approach common throughout the conference.  They should be able to quickly adapt offensively with QB James Franklin running the show.  The big questions is how he will perform against some of the top defenses in the nation.

7.  Auburn Tigers

Many have written off Auburn from title contention after chalking up their 2010 National Championship to superstar Cam Newton. However, the Tigers could surprise some people if their young defense can continue to make progress.

8.  Texas A&M Aggies

No one really knows what to expect from Texas A&M this season following their move from the Big 12 and the hiring of head coach Kevin Sumlin.  The Aggies do have talent and could be a wildcard in the SEC West.

9.  Florida Gators

The Gators are loaded with top ranked recruits but have struggled to find an identity on offense the last few seasons.  This will be the 4th straight year with a new offensive coordinator which means there will be some more growing pains in Gainesville – that is if they can find someone to play QB.

10.  Vanderbilt Commodores

Vandy has a lot of positives going for them this year- most notably a pretty easy schedule.  They will not play LSU, Alabama, nor Arkansas this season.  If they can handle South Carolina and/or Georgia they could end up surprising quite a few people this season.

11.  Tennessee Vols

The Vols have an abundance of talent but head coach Derek Dooley has largely failed to develop it.  If head can somehow turn the corner to save his job this team could be bowl eligible.

12.  Mississippi State

It’s hard to compete in the SEC if you can’t beat anyone in your own division.  Mississippi State has been better of late but until they can beat someone other than Ole Miss, they will continue to be cellar dwellers.

13. Kentucky Wildcats

There is not much to like in Lexington heading into the season.  The offense just flat out needs to get better if this teams is going to compete at all.

14.   Ole Miss Rebels

A terrible offense combined with a terrible defense is not usually a recipe for success.  New head coach Hugh Freeze has a monster task at hand getting the Rebels competitive.  It could be a very long year in Oxford!

Top 10 Hottest College Football Tickets (Week 13)

arkanas vs LSU footballWhat a wild ride this college football season has been. Just when you think the stars are aligned for the National Championship game, a big upset puts everything back into question. This week we saw Oklahoma State get stunned by little old Iowa State. With the loss, the OK State Cowboys drop to #5 in the nation would need some major breaks to get back into the BCS picture.  The loss also hurts the Oklahoma Sooners chances as a win over an undefeated OK State team would have pretty much guaranteed them a #2 ranking.

The Iowa State upset did help out 2 SEC teams vying to get another shot at LSU.  The Alabama Crimson Tide move back up to #2 in the nation- if they can win out the would pretty much be assured a rematch with LSU.  Their game against the Auburn Tigers this weekend will certainly mean a lot.  The Arkansas Razorbacks also got a rankings boost and now sit at #3.  In our game of the week they get their shot at the unanimous #1 team in the nation.  If they can pull off the upset who knows how the BCS Bowl games will play out.

Another game gathering quite a bit of interest is the Houston Cougars vs Tulsa Golden Hurricanes.  The 11-0 Houston Cougars are sitting at #8 in the nation and are looking to make a case for a birth in a BCS Bowl game.  A win over a pretty good Tulsa team would certainly help make that case.  Tulsa is 8-3 and has only lost to Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Boise State.

So now that we thoroughly confused you, let’s take a look at the top college football games this weekend.  This week we have a some pretty good match-ups that will likely have a large impact on the rankings.  Again, these rankings are determined by a formula that utilizes page view and search query data from Tickifieds.com and average ticket price from major ticket brokers.
