Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Florida Gators, Georgia Bulldogs and South Carolina Gamecocks are tied atop the SEC East standings with 3-0 records. Missouri won at Central Florida on Saturday, but the Tigers are 0-2 in conference play.

Five weeks into the 2012 college football season, three teams have risen to the top of the SEC East. Florida, Georgia and South Carolina are tied for the top spot in the division with 3-0 records. It seems to be all or nothing in the East, as Missouri is one of four schools at 0-2 in conference play.

Missouri traveled out of conference on Saturday, taking on Central Florida in Orlando. The Tigers struggled against the Knights but held on for a 21-16 win to improve to 2-2 overall. Running back Kendial Lawrence paced the Mizzou offense, picking up 104 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries.

In the most thrilling game of the day, No. 5 Georgia defeated Tennessee, 51-44, to keep the Vols winless in SEC competition. South Carolina outscored Kentucky 31-0 in the second half en route to a 38-17 victory.

In the West, Alabama slogged through a 33-14 win over Ole Miss. Arkansas' miserable season continued with a 58-10 loss in College Station, Tex., at the hands of Texas A&M. LSU struggled for the second straight week, stumbling to a 38-22 win over FCS opponent Towson.
