The SEC has been the best college football conference for the better part of two decades. We decided to rank the best SEC teams in the BCS/Playoff era, which spans 1998-now. Yes, Nick Saban figures prominently, and so does Tim Tebow.
10. 2017 Alabama (13-1)
Got lucky to get into the playoff following the late-season loss to Auburn, and then needed an unproven, backup quarterback to pull off a miracle comeback in the 2nd half of the title game vs Georgia. The Tide were #1 in scoring defense and #1 in rushing defense.
