In and around Fayetteville, doom and gloom have been common the last 24 hours. That isn't the case elsewhere.
The Arkansas football team fell to Alabama on Saturday, 49-26, but didn't fall out of the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll. The Hogs checked in at No. 25 after being beaten by the now-No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide.
Alabama took the top spot from Georgia, which needed a fourth-quarter rally to get past Missouri on Saturday night. The Bulldogs dropped to No. 2 while the Hogs fell from No. 19.
The SEC was everywhere in the poll. Arkansas' opponent in Week 6, Mississippi State, cracked the rankings for the first time this season. The Bulldogs beat Texas A&M, which fell out of the poll, and are ranked 23rd. Tennessee moved up two spots despite having a bye week and is now No. 8 and Ole Miss jumped two spots after knocking off Kentucky. The Wildcats fell from No. 8 to No. 13.
Another Arkansas opponent, Brigham Young, went up four spots to No. 16 and Cincinnati, the team the Razorbacks beat in Week 1, were a de facto No. 26. LSU was No. 27.
