2012 SoCon football standings: Georgia Southern in 1st place

Mike Zarrilli

The Eagles go for their seventh conference win this weekend.

With the 2012 Southern Conference schedule starting to wind down, the Georgia Southern Eagles find themselves in first place with a 6-1 league record. The Eagles can guarantee themselves at least a share of the conference title with a win over Appalachian State this weekend, which would then force Wofford to win out to salvage a tie. The Eagles defeated the Terriers 17-9 on Oct. 13.

Wofford has games against Samford and Chattanooga remaining on its conference slate. Winning those two games, coupled with a loss by the Eagles to Appalachian State, would give the Terriers the league title outright.

A win over GSU by Appalachian State would also pull the Mountaineers even with the Eagles in the loss column, keeping them alive for a potential first-place tie.

The complete Southern Conference standings:

1. Georgia Southern (6-1 in league games)
2. Wofford (5-1)
3. Appalachian State (4-2)
4. Chattanooga (3-2)
T5. Samford (3-3)
T5. The Citadel (3-3)
7. Furman (2-4)
8. Elon (1-4)
9. Western Carolina (0-7)
