FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The offenses are having their way in
the Southeastern Conference these days.

League teams are averaging 31.1 points per game. That leads all
FBS conferences, ahead of the Pac-10, Big 12 and others more known
for their offensive prowess.

The sometimes high-flying Gators aside, the SEC has been known
for years as a grind-it-out running conference dominated by rugged
defenses. It was just ninth in scoring two years ago at 25.6 points
per game.

However, new offenses and talented players have led to more
up-and-down games, led by No. 2 Auburn and quarterback Cam Newton.

The Tigers lead the SEC in scoring at 42.8 points per game and are
undefeated despite allowing 24.9 points per game, eighth-best in
the conference.
