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.

5. Alabama - 18 points
14 points football, 4 points baseball

Nick Saban's final season was one to be remembered. After a Week 2 loss at home to Texas and a few shaky wins along the way, Alabama found just the right gears at the right time to win the SEC one final time. The Crimson Tide would go on to lose to Michigan in the Rose Bowl, sending Saban to ride off into the sunset after years of tormenting SEC rivals.

The Alabama baseball team was one of five SEC teams to finish with a 13-17 conference record. Like the others, the Crimson Tide earned an invite to the postseason, where they were eliminated after just two games.

4. Kentucky - 19 points
7 points football, 12 points baseball

Mark Stoops has done well for himself in building a good program In Lexington. His teams oftentimes exceed expectations, but 2023 was not one of those times. A 3-5 conference record is not one to brag about, but "The Mark Plug", as they call him, will look to have the Wildcats imrpvoed in 2024.

What a year for the Cats on the diamond! Kentucky had an incredible 22-8 record in the conference, earned the number 2 overall seed in the national tournament, and advanced to their first ever College World Series. Although they ultimately came up short of the final goal, not enough can be said for the baseball program being built at Kentucky.

3. Texas A&M - 21 points
8 points football, 13 points baseball

The Aggies' football season was good enough for them to reach a bowl game, but not good enough for Jimbo Fisher to keep his job. Even his absurd buyout wasn't enough to save him. The Mike Elko era starts now.

The baseball team had an incredible season and came just one win away from winning the program's first national title. The Aggies had a 19-11 record in conference and were the number three national seed in the postseason. Those yell leaders sure did have a lot to yell about this year.
