Now that we've braved the latest installment of college football realignment, it's time to check out how teams have fared in their new conferences.

For the SEC, Missouri and Texas A&M have had an interesting first two seasons in their new home. The Aggies won 11 games and the AT&T Cotton Bowl last year behind Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel and the SEC's best offense. This year, the Aggies took a couple of steps back with only eight wins, but they still owned the SEC's best offense, averaging 538.2 yards per game.

Missouri had a rough debut, winning only five games during the Tigers' injury-riddled first year in the SEC. But Mizzou made a major turnaround in Year 2, winning 11 games, claiming the SEC Eastern Division title and beating the likes of Florida and Georgia along the way with an offense that averaged nearly 500 yards a game.

Mizzou and Texas A&M ranked No. 1 and No. 2 on ESPN colleague Jake Trotter's list of conference realignment winners and losers. You can click here to check out his grades for the Aggies and Tigers, and the other teams dealing with new surroundings.
