The race for the SEC East is on

Five weeks of the college football season have come and gone, and there is beginning to be clear separation in the SEC East. More specifically, it’s looking like Florida and Georgia at the top and then the rest of the field fighting it out from there. Our Ryan Young explains:

“The Bulldogs and Gators don’t play for another three-and-a-half weeks, but anticipation is already building for their Oct. 28 showdown in Jacksonville as the teams appear to be on a crash course for a de facto division-deciding duel. To take stock entering Week 6, Florida (3-0) and Georgia (2-0) are the only SEC East teams still unbeaten in conference play.”
