College Football Standings: SEC Championship Game Waiting On West Winner

Incredibly, though the SEC West rules the top three in both the USA Today and AP polls for Week 13, the conference's championship game is only half-filled because of that division.

LSU, Alabama, and Arkansas are all theoretically alive in the SEC West, and the Razorbacks could force a three-way tie atop the division with a win over LSU this Friday; all three teams would be 7-1 in conference if Arkansas and Alabama win in Week 13. But that win might not get Arkansas to Atlanta, because a three-way tie would come down to BCS standings, and LSU is likely to remain No. 1 in them with or without a win this week.

Arkansas' best chance of crashing the SEC Championship Game: beating LSU, and getting an Auburn upset of Alabama in the Iron Bowl. That would create a two-way tie in the division between 7-1 LSU and 7-1 Arkansas, and Arkansas would earn the division title thanks to its head-to-head win against LSU.

No matter what team wins the West, Georgia awaits in Atlanta. The Bulldogs clinched the SEC East by taking care of Kentucky on Saturday.
