After last week’s results, it appears the Eastern Division is now Georgia’s to lose following the Bulldogs’ big win at Arkansas and disappointing losses from the Gators and Wildcats. Georgia’s shutout win over Mizzou this season could play a major role in tiebreaking scenarios at the end. Here’s how SEC East contenders stack up as we enter the final six weeks of the season:

GEORGIA (6-1, 4-1)

Nick Chubb has saved Georgia’s season. The true freshman’s 345-yard explosion over the last two games during Todd Gurley’s suspension has been nothing short of spectacular on the road against SEC competition. Mizzou squandered its opportunity to take down the Gurley-less Bulldogs with an anemic offense and Arkansas didn’t put up much of a fight. It appears Georgia’s becoming a stronger team as the season progresses and booking rooms in Atlanta is a safe bet if you’re a fan.

REMAINING SEC GAMES: vs. Florida, Nov. 1 (Jax); at Kentucky, Nov. 8; vs. Auburn, Nov. 15

VERDICT: Georgia’s sights are set on the College Football Playoff, not just an SEC Championship Game berth. If the Bulldogs win out, they’re a lock to appear in the final four if Mark Richt’s group can win the showdown in Atlanta. It’s not out of the question that a two-loss Georgia team could make it as ‘the last team in’, but other national elites like Florida State, Notre Dame and Oregon would also need to falter late. The Bulldogs are in great position to finish with a memorable season and many thought that idea was squandered in Columbia, S.C. in September.

MIZZOU (5-2, 2-1)

It wasn’t pretty in The Swamp, but Mizzou’s blowout win featured four non-offensive touchdowns as the Tigers delivered the likely dagger in Florida’s season. The schedule’s manageable the rest of the way in the SEC without a single game against a ranked team, but there’s no margin for error. A road trip to College Station on Nov. 15 could define the Tigers’ season, a big day in the East.

REMAINING SEC GAMES: vs. Vanderbilt, Saturday; vs. Kentucky, Nov. 1; at Texas A&M, Nov. 15; at Tennessee, Nov. 22; vs. Arkansas, Nov. 28

VERDICT: Not even halfway through its 2014 conference slate, Mizzou needs to win out to capture the division and hope Georgia loses to Auburn in the Bulldogs’ SEC finale on Nov. 15. A showdown with Kentucky in two weeks will likely determine this division’s second-place finisher unless the Wildcats suffer a late-season tailspin initiated by last week’s blowout loss in Death Valley. The major question is Maty Mauk and whether he’ll channel some of his early-season success in crunch time. His last couple of outings have been embarrassing.

KENTUCKY (5-2, 2-2)

Kentucky’s balloon burst at LSU in the form of a 38-point, special teams-induced thumping. The Wildcats’ coverage units struggled and the Tigers imposed their will with 300 yards rushing. Is that the Kentucky team we’ll see the rest of the season? The schedule’s not getting any easier, specifically Saturday’s game against No. 1 Mississippi State and a home bout with ninth-ranked Georgia on Nov. 8.

REMAINING SEC GAMES: vs. Mississippi State, Saturday; at Missouri, Nov. 1; vs. Georgia, Nov. 8; at Tennessee, Nov. 15

VERDICT: Surging to the front of the divisional race isn’t going to be easy, but an upset win over the previously unbeaten Bulldogs on Saturday would catapult the Wildcats into the Top 25 for the first time this season, a feather in the cap for Mark Stoops and his staff. Best-case scenario considering what Kentucky has left over its final four conference games is a 4-4 SEC finish and a respectable bowl invite. If the Wildcats can split these four and beat Louisville, eight regular-season wins in Stoops’ second campaign is a noteworthy feat.
