Ever since there have been polls that rank college football teams, there have been 24 meetings
where #1 and #2 have been pitted together. Of those contests, 14 times
the #1 team has defeated the #2 team. #2 has been victorious 8 times
, and twice
the game has ended in a tie.
The team that has won these epic contests most often is Notre Dame
with 5 wins
. Not surprising considering how many times the media has placed them in the top 1 or 2 over the years.
But what I found most interesting is that despite SEC teams having the toughest schedules to play every year (obviously because they have to play each other), the last 3 times
that #1 & #2 played together, it was between SEC teams!
Right now the SEC is BY FAR
the premier football conference in the country! College football lives here!
