Cross-divisional showdowns within the SEC continue to be overwhelmingly troublesome for the Eastern side. Western Division teams are 9-2 against the East this year and 33-8 since the start of the 2014 season.
Those totals include the results of the past two SEC championship games, when Alabama throttled Missouri and Florida by the combined count of 71-28. The West has snagged seven straight SEC title games overall, with Alabama claiming four, Auburn two and LSU one.
Alabama hasn’t lost to an East team in six seasons. Wowser.
There is one East team holding up its end of the deal, though.
6 Straight seasons with a victory over an SEC West team for Georgia after the Bulldogs beat Auburn 13-7 on Saturday. No other SEC East team will own victories over SEC West opponents in even the 2015 and 2016 seasons if Florida doesn’t beat LSU this week. The SEC East is 2-9 in interdivision games this year.
Auburn, they couldn’t have done it without you.
