Five from SEC among college football’s most winningest teams since 2003
For elite prospects who are currently being recruited, seeing the SEC win championships and saturate the NFL Draft is an annual occurrence. That’s a major reason why the country’s best high school prospects continue signing with SEC programs.

Remember, aside from 2013, the prospects being recruited right now hadn’t seen the conference lose a national championship since 2005…when they were in elementary school.
SB Nation looked at college football’s most winningest teams since 2003, and five SEC programs were among the top 15 programs that recorded 100 or more wins. Here’s a look:
1. Boise State 125
2. LSU 117
2. Oklahoma 117
4. Ohio State 115
4. USC 115
6. Texas 109
7. Virginia Tech 107
8. Oregon 106
9. Alabama 105
10. Georgia 104
10. TCU 104
12. Wisconsin 103
13. Florida 102
13. Florida State 102
15. Auburn 100
Is it surprising programs like Michigan, Tennessee, Miami, Clemson and Notre Dame aren’t on the list? All five of those programs have great tradition and a rich history but have struggled over the given time period.
Continual BCS buster Boise State tops the list, which isn’t too surprising, considering the competition the Broncos play. But now that Chris Petersen left for Washington, it’ll be interesting to see which direction the program starts to head under a new coaching staff.
