With three of their first four games scheduled against SEC foes, the Florida Gators have taken full advantage, racing out to a 3-0 conference record to go along with their 4-0 overall record, as the Gators lead the way in the SEC East division early in the 2012 college football season.

The Georgia Bulldogs and South Carolina Gamecocks are right behind the Gators at 2-0 in conference and 4-0 overall, giving the East a strong showing early in the year.

In the West division, two of the the nation's top three teams — the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide — are tied with the Mississippi State Bulldogs atop the division standings, as all three hold a 1-0 conference record. The Auburn Tigers trail the group, as the only team in the division to hold a 0-2 record through the first four weeks.
