Let’s take a closer look at who did what in the SEC this season, starting with wins against teams currently ranked in the top 25 of the BCS standings.

If you doubted for a second how down the East was this season, notice that the East managed just two wins against top 25 BCS teams. South Carolina beat Alabama, and Kentucky beat South Carolina. Yep, that means Florida and Georgia were shut out.

Here are the numbers for all 12 teams:
  • Auburn – 5 (Alabama, Arkansas, LSU, Mississippi State and South Carolina)
  • Arkansas – 4 (LSU, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Texas A&M)
  • LSU – 3 (Alabama, Mississippi State and West Virginia)
  • Alabama – 2 (Arkansas and Mississippi State)
  • South Carolina – 1 (Alabama)
  • Kentucky – 1 (South Carolina)
  • Florida – 0
  • Georgia – 0
  • Mississippi State – 0
  • Ole Miss – 0
  • Tennessee – 0
  • Vanderbilt – 0

Here’s a look at how all 12 SEC teams fared against nationally ranked teams at the time of the game:
  • Auburn: 4-0 (1.000)
  • LSU: 4-2 (.666)
  • Arkansas: 3-2 (.600)
  • South Carolina: 3-2 (.600)
  • Alabama: 4-3 (.571)
  • Kentucky: 1-3 (.250)

  • Georgia: 0-3 (.000)
  • Ole Miss: 0-5 (.000)
  • Tennessee: 0-5 (.000)
  • Vanderbilt: 0-3 (.000)

Next, we take a look at the combined records of the opponents SEC teams beat this season.

Auburn and LSU led the way, each with five wins over FBS teams with winning records.

On the other end of the spectrum, Georgia, Tennessee and Vanderbilt didn’t win a game this season against an FBS team with a winning record.
