The SEC Has Dominated The BCS Rankings Over History

No, it’s not a broken record or anything of the sort, but the SEC dominates the BCS over history…if you needed further proof, we are No. 1!

Since the beginning of the BCS in 1998 – yes, Tennessee won it all in its first year – the SEC has put the most teams in the BCS, with 410 total appearances.

1. SEC – 410
2. Big 12 – 399
3. Big Ten – 357
4. ACC – 316
5. Pac-12 – 293
6. Big East – 152
7. Mountain West – 112
8. Western Athletic – 72

With respect to SEC programs in the BCS, here is a ranking of the number of times each program has been ranked:

1. Florida – 85
2. LSU – 66
3. Georgia – 54
4. Tennessee – 52
5. Alabama – 43
6. Auburn – 39
7. Arkansas – 24
8. South Carolina – 18
9. Mississippi State – 15
10. Ole Miss – 9
11. Kentucky – 4

And you guessed it – Vanderbilt is the only school not to ever be ranked in the BCS. That could turn around in the future with James Franklin at the helm.
