NEW POLL ALERT: Top Ten No More

Monday, December 24, 2018


A costly loss in Raleigh tosses the Tigers down a few spots.

Looks like the AP voters brought Auburn and Bruce Pearl some coal for their Christmas stockings.

The new top ten of the AP Poll looks this way:

  1. Duke
  2. Michigan
  3. Tennessee
  4. Virginia
  5. Kansas
  6. Nevada
  7. Gonzaga
  8. Michigan State
  9. Florida State
  10. Virginia Tech

Auburn has fallen to #12 in the rankings, right behind Texas Tech after a week that saw the Tigers lose at NC State and slip by Murray State at home. Other SEC teams in the rankings include Kentucky at #16, rising after they beat North Carolina in Chicago, and Mississippi State at #19 after they improved to 11-1 this week.

The Tigers likely won’t drop any further due to this week’s slate, which only has North Florida on Saturday, but then they’ll have more than a week off before conference play begins at Ole Miss on January 9th. In that time, there will be a chance for more teams to face turmoil as other conferences get into league play. Auburn will just have to sit by and watch the inevitable chaos ensue around the country.
