SEC vs Big Ten Football


For an SEC vs Big Ten 2011 - 2012 Bowl update, go to SEC vs Big Ten Debate.

Wow, the SEC made a statement vs the Big Ten on New Years Day 2011. The SEC goes 3-0 vs the Big Ten with Alabama, Miss. State and Florida mostly dominating Mich. State, Michigan and Penn State. The SEC teams outscored their Big Ten opponents 138 - 45. [Note, the Big Ten lost two other games as well, all on 1-1-11. This is the worst day a conference has had in college football history.] Wow, there's just nothing to debate currently about the SEC vs Big Ten Football Rivalry. The SEC simply dominates on the field!

In 2010 - 2011, the SEC went 5-4 (Arkansas loss on Sugar Bowl to OSU vacated) in bowl games. In 2009 - 2010, the SEC went 6-4 in bowl games. In 2008 - 2009, the SEC ended up 6-2; 7-2 in 2007 - 2008. That 24-12 bowl record in the past four years is the best record of all the conferences and the most bowl wins ever by one conference over four years.

Oh, and the SEC won the National Championships each of those years, as well as the prior year (2006).

So, how'd the Big Ten do? This past year 2010-2011 they went 2-5; last year they went 4-3. In 2008 they were 1-6. In 2007 they were 3-5. So, a cumulative record of 10-19 over the past four years. Note that Ohio State lost both the '06 and '07 Championship Games to Florida and LSU.

And that pretty much sums things up as far as the SEC vs Big Ten rivalry. It was pretty even until the last three years. The SEC is way ahead now. Last season (2010 - 2011) the SEC was 3-0 vs the Big Ten in Bowl Games and 4-1 in head-to-head games over the entire season.

Check out what some of our visitors say (especially the comments below the submission) here.

Read about the LSU vs Ohio State game; what it means for the Big Ten vs SEC Football Debate, the future of the BCS and lots more at BCS Unfair to SEC; College Football Playoff; and, BCS Controversy.

LSU's victory over Ohio State (following Florida's 2006 National Championship win over OSU) was also pivotal in the SEC vs Big Ten Football Debate.

Over the past decade or so, the SEC has had the upper hand when you look at the big picture. You can find lots of support for this at SEC Football.

But, until LSU's 2007 National Championship victory, Big Ten fans had been able to hang their hat on the argument that the Big Ten led the SEC in head to head match ups over the past five years.

You'll see that point made often by Big Ten fans in the comments below. [The other most often cited Big Ten comment is about the unfairness of playing bowl games in the South...]

Below discussion was from after the 2007 season.

Anyway, there were no SEC - Big Ten match ups this year during the regular season. Coming into the Bowl season, over the past five years, the Big Ten had an 8-7 lead over the SEC (after going 2-1 against the SEC in the 2006-2007 bowls).

[Thanks to a reader comment below for letting us know that SEC teams are 33-20 vs the Big Ten in bowl games 1930 - 2007.]

Once again, we had 3 SEC vs Big Ten bowl match-ups. They were:

  • LSU vs Ohio State -- BCS Championship Game
  • Tennessee vs Wisconsin -- Outback Bowl
  • Florida vs Michigan -- Capital One Bowl

Of course, the SEC took 2 of 3 (LSU and Tennessee) to move into a 9-9 tie with the Big Ten over the past 5 years. But, more significantly, the SEC Champ won its second straight head to head match-up with the Big Ten Champ in the games that mattered most -- the BCS NC games.

And, when you look at the bigger picture, the SEC is even more impressive.

Over the past two bowl seasons; the SEC is a cumulative 13-5; the Big Ten 5-10. And, interestingly, the Big Ten is 3-3 vs the SEC and 2-7 versus everyone else! Not sure what to make of that stat.?

It's a shame the SEC and Big Ten don't play more football games against each other. Two great conferences, with great football traditions and history. It would make for some great games. But, many of the schools have never played each other. More often then not, when they do play, it's in a post-season bowl.

The Big Ten was initially formed in 1896. The last member to join was Penn State, which joined the conference in 1990. The addition of Penn State meant that the conference actually has 11 members, though it is still called the "Big Ten."

Update: actually Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2011, so the conference now has 12 teams, though it still calls itself "The Big Ten."

The Big Ten is composed of the:

  1. Ohio State Buckeyes
  2. Michigan Wolverines
  3. Wisconsin Badgers
  4. Purdue Boilermakers
  5. Minnesota Gophers
  6. Indiana Hoosiers
  7. Northwestern Wildcats
  8. Iowa Hawkeyes
  9. Illinois Fighting Illini
  10. Michigan State Spartans
  11. Penn State Nittany Lions
  12. Nebraska Cornhuskers

In 2011, the Big Ten will add Nebraska and gain it's 12th member. It will also divide into two divisions and add a Big Ten Championship Game. You can read an opinion here about how arguably this will detract from "The Game:" Michigan - Ohio State Rivalry Damaged by Big Ten Move to Two Divisions.

Over the years, there is little doubt that biggest rivalry between college football conferences has been between the Big Ten and the SEC. It probably has something to do with the fact that the two conferences probably embody America's North vs South rivalry more than any others. The SEC is the only Division I college football conference made up entirely of colleges from States that were part of the Confederacy (Kentucky being the sole, debatable, exception). The members of the Big Ten come from unquestionably Northern States.

Maybe that has something to do with it. The other thing is that the two conferences are recognized by most college football observers as the two, overall, best college football conferences. Hence, the natural rivalry.

The Florida - Ohio State match-up in the 2006 National Championship game further stoked interest in how the two conferences compare.

Further, the selection by the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) of Florida Gators over Michigan to face Ohio State for the National Championship was very controversial at the time. Why? I don't know. See The BCS Got it Right.

Then this year we had more BCS controversy and another SEC vs Big Ten match up in College Football's National Championship Game.

So, the rivalry just continues to build.

Overall, we rank the Big Ten as the #3 NCAA Division I college football conference - behind only the SEC and Big 12. The Big Ten has great football tradition and their top programs are among the best in the country (i.e. Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State).

But, the second and third tier Big Ten schools just don't match up to the SEC. At least that's our take here at SEC Sports Fan.

In any event, the bottom line is, of course, the bottom line record. You will find it is close, but fortunately, for SEC fans - dispositive. So, here is the all-time, head-to-head, Big Ten vs SEC football record (current through the 2007 season).

SEC vs Big Ten Head-to-Head Football Record

  • Through 2011, the SEC leads the Big Ten with a 73-50-2 all-time record.
  • The SEC has a .592 winning percentage versus the Big Ten.

Obviously, the two conferences are both great football conferences and pretty close over-all. That's why the SEC vs Big Ten debate is so much fun.

Information Source and Details of Calculation

Last December, a reader of www.secsportsfan.com e-mailed me and asked if I knew the all-time record of SEC vs Big Ten football.

I looked through my files and couldn't find the answer. Then I did a "Google" search and still couldn't immediately find the answer.

Eventually, another reader referred me to Sports Link Network. So, that's where the above information came from.

Of course the devil is in the details. And, the results are only as good as the data that is fed into the calculator.

There are issues of when do you start counting records when one school joins a conference after the others. For instance, Penn State recently joined the Big Ten.

And what if the school once had a very small program that did not resemble its current program? Would you count the wins and losses from back to when it might have only been a club sport? Or, only from when it became a major college football competitor.

The above SEC vs Big Ten football stats are based on historical conference affiliation. This seems the most reasonable criteria. So, it only counts the head-to-head match-ups between SEC schools and Big Ten schools -- when they were in the conference. So, for instance, it would not count Arkansas before they joined the SEC or Penn State before they joined the Big Ten (or Nebraska). It would count former members of the conferences -- but only games they played while a member of the conference.

The other way to do it is to look at all-time stats that don't consider previous conference affiliation. In other words, stats that would include all games between current SEC schools and current Big Ten schools -- even including games prior to formation of the SEC in 1932. It would also include games between (for instance) Arkansas and current Big Ten schools prior to Arkansas joining the SEC (or Penn State prior to the Nittany Lions joining the Big Ten).

If you do that, you will find that, including all current Big Ten schools (except Nebraska, we don't have those numbers yet...) and all current SEC schools, all-time head to head -- due to the poor (vs the SEC) Big Ten season last year the SEC now holds an extremely narrow 95-93-6 advantage vs. the Big Ten. See the bottom of SEC vs Everyone (current through Dec 2010).

You'll see some of the conflicting numbers in some of the comments submitted below. I do think it is fair to say that since formation of the SEC in 1932, the SEC has a slight edge. If you go back before that, the Big Ten has a slight edge.

And here are the Big Ten School Records All-Time vs Everyone.
