UNDATED — Under Nick Saban, the Alabama Crimson Tide always seems to start the season racking up wins. The Georgia Bulldogs also seem to be starting that trend with Kirby Smart in charge. But not everything is going according to plan in the Southeastern Conference. LSU coach Ed Orgeron, the odds-on favorite to be the first SEC coach fired before the season, has his Tigers cruising as one of the league’s last undefeated teams in October. And Kentucky, yes the SEC school best known for its basketball team, also is 5-0 along with Alabama, Georgia and LSU. The Wildcats are also enjoying their highest football ranking at No. 13 since 2007. By Teresa M. Walker. SENT: 850 words, photos.
