On Monday, our "way-too-early" power rankings for the SEC East were published. Today, it's time to head West where, contrary to the East power rankings, the outlook looks familiar.
The West division is home to the past five SEC champions and has proven over the past decade that it is one of—if not the—toughest divisions in college football.
Auburn, Alabama and LSU have all won BCS National Championships over that period of time and routinely produce some of the most exciting matchups in college football.
Will Auburn repeat as division champs? Can Alabama cure its end-of-the-season hangover during the offseason? Will the roster turnover on offense prevent LSU from contending?
Ridiculously early picks for the SEC West are in this slideshow.
