Florida and LSU appear poised to mount serious challenges in their respective Southeastern Conference divisions and two of the nation's best offenses reside in the SEC West.

The stage is set for upcoming showdowns, a heated chase to the championship game and perhaps even a shootout or two in the SEC. No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia won their divisions last year and still look like national title contenders. No. 5 LSU and No. 7 Florida — even with an injury to quarterback Feleipe Franks — also remain unbeaten.
