9. Oklahoma Sooners

While Texas is positioned incredibly entering the SEC Brent Venables and his Oklahoma Sooners could be positioned much better. Offensive Coordinator Jeff Lebby left for Mississippi State meaning new starting quarterback Jackson Arnold will need to learn under a new coach. The offensive line may be lead by four incoming transfers as they've undergone a ton of transition. Defensively, the Sooners should be able to hold up against SEC opponents but, it's not spectacular.

8. Texas A&M Aggies

The Aggies lose Jimbo Fischer who may be one of the best recruiters in the country but, bring in Mike Elko who may be better at coaching. Elko comes to Texas A&M and inherits the best roster he's ever had even after losing 31 players to the transfer portal. What give the Aggies a massive chance to outperform expectations is quarterback Conner Weigman who looked solid before suffering a season-ending injury last season. This year could be a massive jump for the Aggies or a massive disaster it all depends on what Elko does with the talent still there.

7. LSU Tigers

While the majority of programs in the conference looked to make significant additions in the transfer portal this Spring LSU chose to stand pat except for the addition of Jay'Viar Suggs. After losing three players to the first round of the NFL Draft and Six players total to the draft, LSU has plenty of high end talent to replace.

This LSU Football team is a team filled with many of questions that could see them end the season much higher or lower on this list. The team needs to replace both it's leading passer and leading rusher as Jayden Daniels' dynamic ability powered this offense in 2023. The team needs to also replace the production of two first-round receivers after losing Malik Nabers and Brian Thomas Jr. After firing defensive coordinator Matt House, there are many questions about what this defense will look like, especially after losing three defensive tackles to the NFL.
