Where Auburn's opponents rank in the new USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll




 

A new week means another edition of the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll. The Auburn Tigers narrowly escaped Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday with an overtime victory against the Missouri Tigers. Their performance didn't garner them any love in the polls but plenty of future opponents did.

In all, there are seven teams ranked in the top 25 that hail from the SEC with Georgia and Alabama continuing to lead the way. Kentucky and Tennessee also joined the top two teams among the top 10 this week. The Ole Miss Rebels are just outside the list. Arkansas and Texas A&M round out the SEC's representation in the polls.
