The SEC dominates college football. Fans of the Big Ten, Pac-12, and Big 12 used to have an argument when it came to what the best college football conference is, but that argument has been moot for quite a few years now (The ACC and Big East never had an argument.) SEC teams are currently ranked #1, #2, and #3 in the BCS standings, but who knows what might happen after this weekend.
#1 LSU plays #3 Arkansas today at 2:30 p.m. EST on CBS. (OtherScreen is covering this event BTW), and then #3 Alabama matches up with #24 Auburn tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. EST on CBS. If LSU wins, it really doesn’t matter what happens to Alabama. But, if Arkansas wins against LSU, then the whole system will be shaken by which team will play in the SEC title game against Georgia.
Arkansas lost to Alabama. Alabama lost to LSU. If LSU loses to Arkansas, the world might explode.
But, one thing is for sure. If an SEC team makes it to the National Championship, they will probably win. There have been 13 BCS National Championship games. An SEC team has appeared in seven of those games. They have won all seven of them. The Big 12 has also appeared in seven title games, but they have only won two of them. All other BCS conferences have appeared three times each, and they each have one win each.
Not much is known about what will happen in this week of college football. But, if history has shown us anything it’s that SEC teams win National Championships if given the opportunity.
