Every year, the SEC boasts one of the toughest conferences to play in. The five teams on this list have a brutal mixture of difficult games from both their division and the conference's other division.
The SEC is the only conference that can brag about two things: having the only back-to-back national champion and having produced the past seven champions.
Because of the strength of their schedules, a one- or two-loss school normally leapfrogs a school from the Big Ten, ACC, Big 12 or Pac-12. Every week it seems as if these five schools are playing in a high-profiled contest between two ranked teams.
One of these schools, if it is lucky and can go undefeated, is usually guaranteed a spot in the BCS National Championship Game.
