It seems that the past couple of seasons the SEC has been losing its grip as the dominant conference in all of college football. From 2006-2012 the SEC was the golden standard to college football, and still will hoist the preseason number one team. Lately it seems like after Alabama the rest of the conference has been mediocre. This past season, what the Sugar Bowl considered the second best SEC team was drilled by the Big 12 Champions. This 2017 season the preview is not looking great for the SEC. Below you will see the insight Vegas is giving you into the upcoming SEC season. You will see that in the notable out of conference games this year for the SEC, many are underdogs.

Comment below if you think any SEC team besides Alabama is a for sure win.
