(Newser) – The Southeastern Conference no longer has any undefeated teams, and with big upsets coming thick and fast this college football season, twice-beaten schools like Florida may have a real chance at a national title. The Gators beat Kentucky 45-37 last night to join a three-way tie of 3-2 teams leading the SEC East, reports ESPN.

The SEC West has a slightly more traditional scoreboard: LSU and Alabama share the top perch with 4-1 conference records after LSU bested Auburn last night with a touchdown pass in the game's last second. The win brings LSU to 7-1 overall, reviving national championship hopes. The formerly first-ranked Tigers could rise to third in the BCS poll following a South Florida loss.
