The Big 12/SEC Challenge History

In 2014, the two conferences collaborated and so began the Big 12/SEC Challenge. For three years straight, the Big 12 recorded more wins over the SEC. In 2017, the conferences tied and split the W/L ratio down the middle. Every year, the teams try to beat out the competitor not just for themselves, but for their conference. Some say it’s a refreshing game in the middle of the season, away from conference play. On the other hand, some say it’s just an added game tiring the players. Either way, the conference challenges allow for players and teams to meet new style and chemistry with other teams. Because the SEC consists of 14 teams, each year, four teams are excluded from the challenge. This year, the Auburn Tigers, LSU Tigers, Missouri Tigers and Mississippi State Bulldogs were left off the schedule.

Currently, the Big 12 leads with 25-15 wins over the SEC. The following tables reveal each conference’s record per team.

*Update* The Big 12 still leads with 29-21 over the SEC after the 2018 Big 12/ SEC Challenge.
