ESPN Football Power Index: Vols have best chance to win SEC East

ESPN's Football Power Index gives Tennessee a 49-percent chance to win the SEC East.

Tennessee has the best chance to win the SEC East and go to the SEC Championship Game, according to ESPN's Football Power Index.

A tweet from ESPN Analytics writer Sharon Katz indicates that the Vols have a 49 percent chance to win the division, while Florida has a 47 percent chance, South Carolina 3 percent and Kentucky 1 percent.

Florida's loss to Arkansas on Saturday put the Vols right back into the thick of the race. Last Monday, Florida had a 79-percent chance to win the East and the Vols just 18-percent after an expected loss to South Carolina.

Florida has two conference games remaining, a home game with South Carolina this weekend and trip to Baton Rouge against LSU next weekend.

Tennessee has three SEC games left. Home games against Kentucky and Missouri the next two weeks, and a road game at Vanderbilt in the final week of the season.

The Vols have to win out and have Florida lose one of its conference games to claim the division title and its first trip to the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta since 2007.
