Around the SEC, you keep hearing that divisional dominance is cyclical, that seasons like this come around every now and then. That may be true. Not too long ago, Tennessee and Florida owned the SEC year-in and year-out. From Steve Spurrier’s Fun-N-Gun Florida squads to Peyton Manning’s Tennessee Volunteers, the East at one point claimed seven of eight and eight of 10 champions in the 90s and early-2000s.

For the better part of the last decade, it’s been the West running the show, with the last six champions and eight of 11. This year, though, the West has taken their dominance to comical levels. While the East flounders, with just one team in the rankings (Georgia), the West has been pummeling the rest of the country.

Let’s take a look at how they’ve manhandled both the East and the rest of the country.

SEC West vs. all other teams: 27-0
SEC West vs. SEC East: 4-0
SEC West vs. all, total score: 1,182-325 (43.8-12 average)
SEC West vs. SEC East, total score: 165-79 (41.25-19.75 average)


The remaining schedule between the two divisions seems to suggest the West will continue to romp, with the West having six home games of the remaining 10 contests.

Week 9: Mississippi State at Kentucky, South Carolina at Auburn, Alabama at Tennessee
