Another week of SEC football is in the books, and while the games in Week 8 mattered just as much (if not more) than any of the previous weeks, the outcomes were far from dramatic.

A member of the SEC West finally lost to a team outside the division when Georgia defeated Arkansas 45-32 in Little Rock in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score would lead a casual observer to believe. The closest game of the day was actually over by halftime and the rest of the slate followed a similar pattern.

Two other East-West matchups turned out to be unfair fights and the SEC West flexed its muscle when Ole Miss pummeled Tennessee 34-3 and LSU whooped Kentucky 41-3. As you’ll see in this week’s power rankings, there is a clear divide between the strength of the league’s two halves.

While none of the games were close, the day’s biggest statements in Tuscaloosa and Gainesville. Alabama destroyed Texas A&M 59-0 and the Florida Gators were embarrassed 42-13 by Missouri. Both were basically championship elimination games for the Aggies and Gators in their respective divisions.

Also, South Carolina took care of business in non-conference play with a 41-10 win over Furman, while Auburn, Vanderbilt and Mississippi State all took the week off. But, how did it all impact our weekly SEC Football Power Rankings?
