The Southeastern Conference is comprised of 12 NCAA Division-I private and public schools that are divided for football into Eastern and Western divisions. The SEC was established in 1932 with 13 charter members, 10 of which are still a part of the SEC. After 3 charter members left the conference, the other members decided to expand in 1991 bringing the SEC to the current 12 members it is made of today.
In the Southeastern Conference each team has one permanent opponent that is traditionally the school's biggest rival. Each team plays a total of 8 conference games, consisting of the 5 other teams in the division, 2 schools from the other division that are chosen on a rotating basis and the one permanent opponent. At the end of the regular season the East and West division winners are pitted against each other for the SEC Championship game, which is the oldest conference championship game in the NCAA.
