Before the season, we kindly asked you to participate in SB Nation’s FanPulse weekly rankings. This is basically a poll voted on by you, the fans, instead of stuffy old sportswriters, which allows for more insight into how the common fan feels about the current season.

Football Confidence

After throttling Texas A&M 50-7 on Saturday night, confidence shoots back up to 100% from 97.4% heading into the weekend. And why shouldn’t it be? For the second time ever LSU is 12-0 and heading into an SEC Championship game against Georgia. And last time that happened, it worked out pretty well.

Top 25
  • AND STILL.
  • Despite losing to them, Alabama slides all the way to 9th and in front of Auburn.
  • However, the Tigers of the plains variety bump up from #13 to #10.
  • Minnesota loses and takes the fall from #10 to #17.
  • Wiscosin, who beat Minnesota, moves from #17 to #12,
  • In case you thought the SEC dominance was over: five of the top 10 are members are conference mates. And remember, this is an aggregate of every fanbase’s vote.
  • As such, there is only one conference championship game that is a Top-10 meeting, folks.
  • After beating Cincinnati, Memphis holds on to the top G5 spot, but actually move back. It’s a hard knock life.
