South Carolina beat North Carolina and UCF. 2-0.

Missouri beat Murray State, Toledo, Indiana, and Arkansas State. 4-0.

Arkansas beat Louisiana-Lafayette, Samford, and Southern Miss, lost to Rutgers. 3-1.

Mississippi State beat Alcorn State, Troy, and Bowling Green, lost to Oklahoma State. 3-1.

Ole Miss beat SE Missouri State, and Texas. 2-0.

A&M beat Rice, Sam Houston State, and SMU. 3-0.

LSU beat TCU, UAB, and Kent State. 3-0.

Auburn beat Washington State, Arkansas State, and Western Carolina. 3-0.

Alabama beat Virginia Tech, Colorado State, and Georgia State. 3-0.

That's a record of 35-7. Nice record, but not a lot of impressive victories. Almost all are against pretty weak competition and the conference has lost some big games. You'd have to compare that to other conferences and then look at strength of schedule.

SEC is definitely down this year.
How many teams have great out of conference opponents? Look at the SEC facing itself and the quality of football therein.
