The Texas A&M Aggies sit in the middle of the SEC West standings, having played one conference game so far. The Aggies lost 20-17 against the Florida Gators, who have played the most SEC games and won all three of them

Texas A&M was out of conference this week, laying a 70-14 score on South Carolina State.

The SEC West hasn't seen as much action within the conference as the SEC East. The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide are 1-0 -- they cruised against Florida Atlantic this week -- but No. 3 LSU nabbed a big victory against the Auburn Tigers, who fell to 0-2 in SEC play. No. 21 Mississippi State is hanging in there with a 1-0 league record.

Texas A&M and Arkansas both sit at 0-1 in the conference, while Ole Miss has yet to play an SEC game.

Heading into the fifth week of the college football season, the SEC East flexed its muscle with three teams improving to 2-0 or better in conference play. No. 11 Florida leads the way. The Gators are already 3-0 in the conference this season, and 4-0 overall after blasting Kentucky, 38-0, on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the No. 6 South Carolina Gamecocks improved to 2-0 in the SEC with a 31-10 win against newcomer Missouri. Georgia is also undefeated through two conference games, after a 48-3 victory over Vanderbilt. The No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs are 2-0 in SEC games.

Mizzou and Vandy sit at the bottom of the East with 0-2 SEC mark, while Kentucky and Tennessee sit at 0-1.
