Predicting every SEC team’s final 2021 record

·4 min read

The 2021 SEC football season will be here before we know it and the nation’s most powerful conference is hoping to bring home another national title.

With Alabama and Georgia looking to be the league’s top programs for the upcoming season, there’s a chance that the SEC could once again see two teams make it into the College Football Playoff.

We attempted to predict each team’s final record in 2021 and tried to account for the craziness that can ensue on any given Saturday in the fall (hence LSU losing to UCLA in the opening week).

Here is our final projected record for each team in the conference this season. Don’t be too harsh on us.
