More clarity on the horizon in cloudy SEC

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -

If someone survives the Southeastern Conference gauntlet unscathed there's little doubt they'll get a spot in the national championship - and a shot at winning the league's sixth consecutive title.

That's a big if, especially without a clear-cut favorite in the SEC.

There are plenty of contenders, including LSU, Alabama, South Carolina, Arkansas and Florida. All are ranked in the top 15. Others like Auburn, Georgia and Mississippi State have been previously ranked and hope to be a factor in November.

But there will be many potential season-breaking showdowns before then.

This weekend the third-ranked Crimson Tide hosts No. 14 Arkansas on Saturday while second-ranked LSU plays in yet another contest with championship implications when the Tigers travel to No. 16 West Virginia.
