How do all fourteen SEC football programs stack up in all-time records?

SEC football fans love to claim bragging rights, so as we head into the 2020 season (perhaps) a list of how each program stacks up nationally and within the conference in all-time wins and winning percentage seems to be in order.

Obviously, the true measure of a program’s greatness is winning conference and national championships, but for now, a pure ranking based on the number of wins and win percentage will bring at least a little joy to fans of the programs who win a lot, but just can’t close the deal.

Along with being the only SEC school without a national championship in any team sport, Mississippi State is also saddled with the fewest number of wins in the football program (at least for a few more years).
