The SEC has been the top-dog conference in college football for quite some time now. The SEC would not be complete if it didn’t have some great rivalries. With that, we look at the top 10 SEC rivalries in college football.
*As of 6/13/14
Alabama vs. Texas A&M hasn’t always been the best rivalry, but it has certainly gained a lot of steam as of late. Hopefully this rivalry doesn’t die down since Johnny Manziel is now in the NFL. In no way is this the most storied rivalry on the list, but it is certainly becoming a good one.
LSU has gotten the better of Arkansas over the last couple of years, but these two teams battle it out every time they take the field against one another. The Razorbacks will more than likely have a down year in 2014, so LSU’s streak will probably continue.
Tennessee isn’t exactly a powerhouse in college football anymore, so this rivalry has died down quite a bit. It doesn’t help that Florida has been in the national spotlight and has won nine games in a row against the Volunteers. Still, at one point this rivalry was rocking.
Okay, so these two teams aren’t exactly powerhouses either, but that doesn’t mean they don’t provide entertainment. With these two in-state rivals on the rise, the Egg Bowl should gain more and more attention.
Georgia may dominate the all-time series, but I have a feeling South Carolina is going to catch up thanks to the addition of Steve Spurrier. After all, the Gamecocks have beaten the Bulldogs three times in the last four years.
No matter how good these two teams are coming into this matchup, LSU and Florida seem to always play each other tough. Not to mention, one of the two teams seems to always be in contention for a national title.
55-54-8. As you can see, the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry is, well, quite the rivalry. Auburn leads the all-time record, but clearly not by much. Look for it to be another heart-pounding showdown this upcoming season.
Alabama and LSU have together won a handful of championships over the past few years. No matter how much turnover they have, these two powerhouses are always contending for the SEC title and a trip to the National Championship.
The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party is one of the best rivalries in college football. The two teams can’t even decide on the all-time record. Talk about a good rivalry. Plus, both teams are usually relevant in terms of national title talks as well.
Last season's Iron Bowl was amazing. The winner of that game was going to go on to play in the SEC title game, and more than likely the national championship, and that is exactly what happened. At Alabama’s expense that is. The 2014-15 season shouldn’t be any different.
