While Alabama is the only SEC team to make the College Football Playoff, several other teams have been in contention.
In 2014, Mississippi State was ranked No. 1 in the country for the initial rankings. Ole Miss, Auburn and LSU have also held spots in the top four put out by the playoff committee. Coupled with Alabama’s consistent dominance, it should come as no surprise that SEC teams have spent the most time in the top four.
The five mentioned teams have spent a combined 19 weeks in the top four. That is more than all teams from the Big 10, Big 12 and PAC 12 combined.
