12. Arkansas (0-1, 0-1 SEC) Sure, Arkansas lost 45-21 to Auburn on Saturday. But anyone who watched the game knows the Razorbacks should be able to take some positives away from it regardless. The Razorbacks moved the ball effectively in the first half; everyone knew they could run the ball given their great stable of backs and gargantuan offensive line, but quarterback Brandon Allen showed that the offense should have more balance this season. Defensively, they were able to come up with some stops to force a few punts. While these things don't alter the fact Arkansas lost by 24, it appears better days are on the horizon.

1. No. 6 Auburn (1-0, 1-0 SEC) So the defending SEC champions look like they'll be fine without Tre Mason and Greg Robinson, huh? 45 points and 595 yards offensively. A second-half shutout which included an interception return for a touchdown. Jeremy Johnson continues to show why the Tigers will be fine when Nick Marshall leaves. Cameron Artis-Payne asserting himself at running back with 26 carries, 177 yards and a touchdown. And don't forget about D'haquille "Duke Williams, who set a school-record for receiving yards (154) for a player making his first appearance with the Tigers. But perhaps the number Auburn fans like the most is two. As in, Gus Malzahn is now 2-0 versus Arkansas coach Bret Bielema.
