MIAMI, FL , Sporting Alert – Early updated standings from the Southeastern Conference (SEC) after three weeks of NCAA college football action this past weekend.
After putting away last week’s No. 18 ranked Auburn, who has since been dropped from the AP top 25 – LSU heads the SEC WEST standings with a 2-0 record after two games thus far on the season.
The Tigers (2-0), after having their Week 1 fixture canceled because of bad weather, defeated Mississippi State 21-19 in Week 2 and then hammered Auburn 45-21 in Week 3.
LSU, following Saturday’s big victory, improved to No. 8 in the AP top 25 college football rankings.
Meanwhile, head coach Les Miles has warned rivals that his team is starting to show potential and could very well go on a dominant run during the course of this campaign.
“I think that our football team has the potential to be dominant on offense and defense and special teams,” Miles said after the win over Auburn on Saturday.
“So with that being said, I don’t know that those teams necessarily had that full package.
“I think with quarterback play, it’s coming. I think the fact that we can throw it to some very talented receivers, the fact that we can run the football.
“The offensive line is going to give us protection and come off the football. I think offensively, defensively and special teams … it’s a great group of young men. They work hard. They want for the season to turn right.”
Heading up things in the SEC East is Georgia, which has also a 2-0 conference record and an overall record of 3-0.
Meanwhile, Ole Miss, tied for the No. 3 spot in the country and collected 11 first-placed votes after upsetting then-No. 2 Alabama on Saturday, is second to LSU in the SEC WEST standings.
The Rebels, who have a 3-0 overall record thus far on the season, have scored 192 points from two games, including back-to-back 70-plus points to start the season in the first two.
Florida is 1-0 in the SEC East, while Kentucky is 1-1 in that same standings.
South Carolina (1-2) is 0-2 in the SEC East and is the only team with two defeats in conference, while Vanderbilt, Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State all have one defeat in conference play thus far.
