Ranking each SEC school as combined football and baseball programs

The SEC, as usual, enjoyed a lot of success on the gridiron and the baseball diamond in 2023 and 2024.

8. Ole Miss - 14 points
11 points football, 3 points basball

What a season Lane Kiffin and the Ole Miss Rebels had in 2023. The team enjoyed a program-best 11 wins, including a NY6 victory over Penn State. Coach Kiffin has been a drink of fresh water for this program since taking over.

On the other hand, the baseball team did not have as much fun. A program only a few seasons removed from a national title posted an 11-19 conference record and failed to make the postseason. This proud baseball program likely we won't be down this bad for long though.

7. Missouri - 14 points
12 points football, 2 points baseball

This section could basically be a copy/paste of the Ole Miss football section. Just replace Lane Kiffin with Eli Drinkwitz, Ole Miss Rebels with Missouri Tigers, and Penn State with Ohio State, and there you go. Now let's just see if this program can maintain their momentum.

The baseball season was more or less disgusting as the Tigers finished with a 9-21 conference record. To be honest, I can't even picture what the Missouri baseball jerseys or stadium look like, so 9 conference wins is actually more than I would have expected.

Missouri gets the nod as top-tanked 14-point program in this ranking as my personal favorite of the three schools. Way to go Missouri!

6. LSU - 17 points
10 points football, 7 points baseball

The LSU football team righted the ship after a Week 1 loss in 2023 to finish with yet another 10-win season. The Tigers' 2 conference losses came on the road to rivals Ole MIss and Alabama, which kept them out of the NY6 and out of the top-5 on this list. But 10 points in this exercise is not bad.

Coming off a national championship from last season, the baseball team took an expected step back after losing stars Paul Skenes and Dylan Crews to the MLB. The team was able to catch fire at the end of the season, securing a bid to the Chapel Hill regional where they took host UNC to the final game.

If this was an historical ranking of the football and baseball programs, LSU would likely be higher. But this is not, so they are not.
