LSU and Alabama head up the SEC in the Week 10 AP Poll and the Week 10 USA Today coaches poll, and didn't need to prove themselves in Week 9 to do it. That's the luxury both idle SEC titans enjoyed in advance of their seismic Week 10 clash.
The No. 1 AP/No. 1 coaches Tigers and No. 2 AP/No. 2 coaches Crimson Tide combine to earn all but one of the available first-place votes in the two most prominent human polls in the college football rankings; Boise State snagged one first-place vote from an AP Poll voter.
But the two BCS national championship contenders aren't the only SEC teams in the college football rankings. No. 8 AP/No. 8 coaches Arkansas and No. 10 AP/No. 10 coaches South Carolina join LSU and Alabama in the top 10, No. 18 AP/No. 20 coaches Georgia returns to the top 20, and No. 25 AP Auburn makes its way back into the rankings.
