2012 SEC Football Standings: Bulldogs take control of SEC East

With the Georgia Bulldogs' victory over divisional foe Florida Gators, Mark Richt's team takes firm control of the SEC East

The Georgia Bulldogs gave the No. 2 Florida Gators their first loss in the conference and overall, giving Mark Richt's No. 6 ranked Bulldogs control of their own destiny in the SEC East.

Before celebrating their berth, though, the Bulldogs will need to take care of a much improved Ole Miss team on Saturday, Nov. 3 while Florida takes on (4-4) Missouri.

The (7-2) South Carolina Gamecocks, too, are technically alive in the SEC East division, but will need help from both Bulldogs and Gators opponents for them to claim the top spot.

Meanwhile in the SEC West, the Alabama Crimson Tide once again dominated their opponent, beating SEC West divisional foe Mississippi State, giving Alabama additional room to breathe in case the top team in the nation has an upsetting end to the regular season.

Alabama, 5-0 in the conference, will take on another team chasing them on Saturday, Nov. 3 when they visit the LSU Tigers, who are 3-1 in the conference.
