With two weeks of the college football season in the books, the SEC still has solid representation in the Associated Press Top 25 and even added a new team to the rankings.

Seven SEC teams are in the newest version of the poll, with idle Alabama remaining at No. 1, receiving 57 first-place votes. Ole Miss (2-0) is the new team in the poll. The Rebels debut at No. 25 after opening the season with victories at Vanderbilt and, on Saturday, at FCS foe Southeast Missouri State.

Texas A&M (2-0), coming off a blowout win over FCS power Sam Houston State, moved up to No. 6 six days before they host the defending national champion Crimson Tide. LSU (2-0) moved up a spot to No. 8 after crushing UAB 56-17, fueled by Zach Mettenberger's five touchdown passes.

Georgia (1-1) won the marquee SEC matchup of Week 2, beating South Carolina 41-30. The reward for the Bulldogs is a two-spot jump to No. 9. The penalty for South Carolina (1-1) is a tumble of seven spots to No. 13.

Florida, which struggled offensively against Miami and lost 21-16, dropped six spots to No. 18.

Tennessee (2-0), which crushed Western Kentucky 52-20, received one vote in the poll a week ahead of their game against No. 2 Oregon.
