The Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs have used SEC-filled early schedules to jump out to a quick lead in the SEC's East division, as both are undefeated and atop the standings in the first parts of the 2012 college football season.

The Bulldogs (3-0 in conference) and the Gators (2-0), along with the South Carolina Gamecocks (2-0), are all more than a game better than the rest of the conference, as the seven-team division looks to be declaring itself early in the season.

In the West division, two of the top-three ranked teams in the country — the Alabama Crimson Tide and the LSU Tigers — are tied with the Mississippi State Bulldogs at 1-0 on the season in conference play, as the division has not separated itself quite as much early on as the East has.

Here are the complete SEC standings:
