Before we take a look at the where the SEC’s record 12 bowl-eligible teams ended up, here are the power rankings heading into the bowls. I’ll have a final Power Rankings after the bowls.

Alabama (No. 1 last week) – No surprises here, not after the Tide’s dominating performance against Missouri for yet another SEC title. The win kept them No. 1 in the CFP rankings, which was good for a Sugar Bowl berth against fourth-ranked Ohio State. Don’t be surprised to see Alabama in the national title game.

Missouri (No. 4) – The magic ran out for the Tigers against Alabama, but they’ve proven they belong in the SEC after two East titles in the past two years. Their reward is a trip to sunny Orlando and the Citrus Bowl.

Here’s the rest of the power rankings, based on the regular season.

Ole Miss (No. 7)

Mississippi State (No. 2)

Georgia (No. 3)

Auburn (No. 5)

LSU (No. 8)

Florida (No. 9)

Arkansas (No. 6)

Tennessee (No. 11)

South Carolina (No. 10)

Texas A&M (No. 12)

Kentucky (No. 13)

Vanderbilt (No. 14)
