College Football: SEC Still Rules Final AP Poll


The final college football poll of the 2013-14 season is out, and despite the SEC failing to get  single win in a BCS Bowl game, the league still rules the poll with four teams in the top-7 and a total of six teams in the top-25.

The biggest surprise was South Carolina climbing all the way to No. 4, despite not even playing in a BCS game. But when you realize they beat three top-10 teams (Mizzou, Clemson and UCF), it’s well-deserved.

You may recall the Kentucky Wildcats pushed USC to the limit in a game that was decided by only a touchdown in Columbia. The Wildcats ended up playing five teams in the top-25 to go with two others (UGA & MSU) who drew votes in the final poll.

Here is the final college football AP Poll:
