Bama-LSU The 8th Matchup Of Top Five SEC Foes Since 2000

How strong has SEC football been the past 12 seasons?  Consider this:

Alabama-LSU will be the eighth matchup of Top Five SEC clubs since the turn of the century. 

Unlike the Big Ten and Pac-12 which have so often been dominated by Ohio State or Southern Cal, the SEC has regularly featured two of America’s five best squads in a given year.

Impressive.

Here are the previous Top Five matchups since 2000:


2001 — #5 Tennessee 34, #2 Florida 32 at Gainesville
 
2003 — #3 LSU 34, #5 Georgia 13 at SEC Championship Game in Atlanta

2004 — #3 Auburn 24, #5 Georgia 6 at Auburn

2005 — #5 LSU 16, #4 Alabama 13 in overtime at Tuscaloosa

2008 — #2 Florida 31, #1 Alabama 20 at SEC Championship Game in Atlanta

2009 – #1 Florida 13, #4 LSU 3 at Baton Rouge

2009 — #2 Alabama 32, #1 Florida 13 at SEC Championship Game in Atlanta


Between 1983 and 1999 the SEC featured just six Top Five matchups.
