How does this system even work? LSU has the best two wins of any team in the country and is ranked 4th?!? Not to mention Georgia above undefeated teams, Oregon over Auburn, Auburn over Florida... Nice ESPN

Florida beats auburn and ranked after them. LSU beats two top 10 teams and ranked below teams who have no top 10 wins

Based on that logic of UF-Florida you are assuming that South Carolina should be ahead of Georgia

If you use logic, which it appears you are not able to, you will see SC is 3-3. Georgia is 5-1

You guys know these polls are based off what's been done in the past. Even if you are having a stellar year currently, they are gonna look at previous years.

Probability to win out: 5.9% This made me laugh. There's only one team in front of us that we won't be favored by double digits over and I'm betting the line on the Alabama game will be them -6.5 or something like that with three of those points coming from home field advantage.

LSU still has a monster schedule ahead of them with Auburn and Bama (away). Miss state and Ole Miss games shouldn't be slept on either.

GA had number 6 tells you the validity of this poll.

Uhhh wha? It's the FPI and you clearly don't understand it's not a poll. UGA still has a shot, they just MUST win out, including the SEC Champ. Game. UGA still plays 3 more ranked teams (currently) so their FPI value is higher.
