It's all shaping up nicely in the SEC West. The November 5 LSU/Alabama game at Tuscaloosa should decide the division. The top two teams in the country both looked impressive Saturday; LSU beat up on the Florida team Alabama destroyed last week and Alabama shut out Vandy.
The East is a little more complicated. South Carolina and Georgia are tied at 3-1 in conference action. South Carolina has the edge after winning the head-to-head matchup last month. But Florida is lurking at 2-2 with games still upcoming against the leaders. South Carolina dismantled dismal Kentucky and Georgia handled Tennessee to give Coach Richt his 100th career victory.
If you're a praying person, put in a few words for the Ole Miss Rebels. They're 2-3 overall and 0-2 in the conference. They were off this week, but play Alabama, Arkansas and Auburn the next three weeks and then LSU a couple of weeks later. Their November 5 game against Kentucky will probably determine the worst team in the league, depending on how the rest of the year goes for Vandy.
