2011 SEC update week 1

By Keith Antigiovanni

After winning the past 5 BCS title games the Southeastern Conference is off to another great start after the conference went a collective 10-2. Only Georgia and Ole Miss kept the SEC from posting a perfect record.

Of all the teams, LSU's was the most impressive with a 40-27 victory over the runner-up Oregon Ducks in Arlington, Texas. Georgia's opponent was also tough even though they are not an official BCS team but the Boise State Broncos defeated the Dawgs 35-21.

The defending BCS champ Auburn came from behind against a scrappy Utah State team, Alabama won impressively over Kent State 48-7, Mississippi State has picked up where they had left off with a resounding 59-14 win over Memphis and Florida beat Florida Atlantic 41-3.

South Carolina and Kentucky also won on opening week over FBS opposition while Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Arkansas all won easily over FCS teams. The Volunteers beating Montana, the Razorbacks beat Missouri State and the Commodores over Elon.
