The East Strikes Back

A week after the SEC West went 3-0 in inter-division play, the other side has struck back.

The East went 3-1 against the West, with the only loss being Kentucky's close loss at Alabama, 17-14. Florida pulled away late to defeat Arkansas 38-7, South Carolina held on to defeat Ole Miss 31-24, and Vanderbilt edged Auburn 14-13 in a thriller in Nashville.

On the season the divisions are tied up at four wins apiece, adding Vandy's win over Ole Miss to the results of these most recent two weeks. Next week features two games between the divisions, with LSU visiting Florida and Vanderbilt visiting Mississippi State.

As a follow up to the bit on road teams' early success, home teams were 2-2 on the day in conference play. Alabama and Vanderbilt won at home; Florida and South Carolina won on the road.

In Florida's and Alabama's cases, the team that should have won got the W. It appears the other two games were between relatively even teams. For the season, the home team is 2-2 in such tossups.
