Bud Light Southern Power Poll

1. Alabama -- Already with seven passing touchdowns through two games, quarterback Bryce Young, perhaps the early Heisman favorite, will lead the Crimson Tide into The Swamp for a showdown with Florida.
Record: 2-0
Next: at Florida

2. Georgia -- Quarterback Stetson Bennett threw for a program-record tying five scores in the first half against UAB, while the nation's best defense has still now allowed a single touchdown.
Record: 2-0
Next: vs South Carolina

3. Clemson -- After getting their first win of the season against South Carolina State, the Tigers, who will be heavy favorites the rest of the way, are now set to begin conference play.
Record: 1-1
Next: vs Georgia Tech

4. Florida -- All eyes will be on the Gators, who have started strong and suddenly have an emerging quarterback competition, as top-ranked, undefeated Alabama comes to town.
Record: 2-0
Next: vs Alabama

5. Texas A&M -- It definitely wasn't pretty on offense, but the defense-led Aggies dramatically found a way in the final minutes of last weekend's three-point victory at Colorado.
Record: 2-0
Next: vs New Mexico

6. Ole Miss -- Given Tulane's performance against Oklahoma in week one, nearly pulling off an upset of the Sooners, Saturday could be quite the test for the high-scoring Rebels.
Record: 2-0
Next: vs Tulane

7. Auburn -- The Tigers, who lead the nation with 61 points per game, will now step into the national spotlight on Saturday night with a primetime game at nationally-ranked Penn State.
Record: 2-0

8. Arkansas -- What a performance it was and what a scene it was for the Razorbacks in their 40-21 triumph over long-time rival Texas, unofficially welcoming the Longhorns to the SEC.
Record: 2-0
Next: vs Georgia Southern

9. Coastal Carolina -- With one of the best offenses in the country, the Chanticleers made it three straight wins over Kansas last Friday night and now prepare for their first road game of the season.
Record: 2-0

10. Virginia Tech -- Off to an impressive start which included the week one upset win over top ten North Carolina, the Hokies will look to win on the road at rival West Virginia
Record: 2-0

11. Kentucky -- The Wildcats, led by four touchdowns from Chris Rodriguez, Jr., got a key win over Kentucky Saturday night and host Chattanooga before starting conference play.
Record: 2-0
Next: vs Chattanooga

12. North Carolina -- Keep an eye on the quarterbacks here as Sam Howell and Brennan Armstrong combined for ten touchdowns last week, as the Tar Heels look to beat Virginia after losing a year ago.
Record: 1-1
Next: vs Virginia
