A snapshot of the past 5 years in the SEC
By Chris Low
It's pretty much full speed ahead now to the start of spring practice in the SEC.
With that in mind, let's take a closer look at where everybody in the league stands based on what's happened over the past 5 years.
We know Alabama has won three of the past four national championships. We know Vanderbilt is coming off its first nine-win season in nearly 100 years. We know Tennessee has had just one winning season in the last five years. We know that Ole Miss snapped a 16-game SEC losing streak this past season and made it to a bowl game under first-year coach Hugh Freeze. We know Auburn is coming off its first 0-8 SEC record in school history, and we know South Carolina has won 11 games in each of the last two seasons and is one of only six FBS schools to have done so.
Below is a chart that examines what all 14 SEC schools have done over the past five years. We did not include records against SEC teams for Missouri and Texas A&M since last year was their first season in the league.
