The Oklahoma Sooners held on to their season-long No. 1 spot in the USA Today Coaches Poll, while the LSU Tigers kept the No. 1 ranking they earned from the Associated Press last week when the latest top 25 polls were released on Sunday. The Florida Gators (4-2, 2-2 SEC), fresh off back-to-back losses including a 41-11 drubbing by LSU on Saturday, completely fell out of both rankings.

    We are 26!! Hey I have said all along we are going to beat all of the teams we are ranked ahead of! Auburn is ahead of us in one poll and behind us in the other, so this game is a toss up. At least Georgia and FSU! stink!

    We are right where I thought we would be. Gotta rally the troops and hope that Brantley can get back as soon as possible.
