A look at the Football Power Index for each team in the SEC

As we continue marching towards the end of spring football, the 2022 college football season previews and metrics are coming fast and furious.

Recently ESPN released their Football Power Index (FPI) for the upcoming season. As it should come as no surprise, the entire SEC is well represented among the top team in the country. In fact, only three conference teams didn’t land in the top 30 ratings. Vanderbilt, South Carolina, and Missouri have some work to do.

The conference is expected to be a strong contender for an all-SEC affair once again in the College Football Playoffs national championship game as they did last year.

Perhaps this year will have a different outcome, but here is how ESPN’s metric graded out for each SEC team.
