SEC finishes No. 1 among nation's conferences in statistical survey

28

July

In a statistical survey based on NCAA championships and rankings, the SEC placed first in both men’s and women’s sports.

The survey, compiled each year since 1986 by Bo Carter, takes into account final NCAA championship standings in 10 men’s and 11 women’s sports, and poll rankings in football.  Each conference gets 20 points for a team that wins a national championship, 19 for a second place finish and down to 1 point for a 20th place finish.

Wrestling is included in the men’s totals, but the sport is not sponsored by the SEC.

In the 10 men’s sports for the survey, the SEC had 398 points with the Pac-10 coming in second with 396 points, followed by the Big 12 with 395 points, Big Ten with 279.5 points, ACC with 238 points and the Big East with 83 points.

In the 11 women’s sports the SEC sponsors, the SEC led the way with 502.5 points followed by the Pac-10 with 480 points, the Big 12 with 382 points, ACC with 369 points, Big Ten with 221 points and the Big East with 164 points.
