Ten SEC teams in the top 40, but none from the third world country known as Mississippi.
Ole Miss finally shows up at #55
And Moo U in 80th. The defending natty may not make the field, much less host.
Also based on league standings, two teams won’t make it to Hoover. Those two are pretty much eliminated from NCAA consideration regardless of their RPI (and the RPI won’t be that good if they’re bottom-feeding in the standings in five weeks).
The current bottom feeders are Misery, the Flopnecks and Kentucky, all at 5-10, but Moo U, Florida and SoCar are only a game ahead of those three at the halfway point. Two of those six ain’t gonna get to Hoover.
