2005 SEC Baseball Standings Week Three

A rundown of last weekend's action in the SEC and what's in store for week four in baseball action.

Things are always tough in the Southeastern Conference in baseball, but 2005 may be the deepest year in the long history of the league with 10 teams within two games of each other following three weeks of play in the league.

One of the two teams not in the hunt at the moment is Georgia, which was swept at South Carolina over the weekend to fall to just 2-6 in SEC play. That is surprising considering Georgia made a run in the College World Series last year and was considered one of the top teams in the country heading into this season.

In other series around the SEC Auburn took two of three from the visiting Arkansas Razorbacks to improve to 5-4 on the year in the league. The two wins give the Tigers five victories in the last eight games against Top 10 opponents. Elsewhere Alabama defeated LSU two of three to remain in first place in the division. Vanderbilt defeated Ole Miss two out of three in Nashville, Tennessee swept both games of a doubleheader against Mississippi State to win the shortened series 2-0, and Florida swept Kentucky. Here is a rundown of the league standings.

Alabama 6-3 22-9
