The SEC is split into two divisions, the East and the West. The East is made up of South Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky and Vanderbilt. The remaining teams make up the West.

The SEC was established in December 1932 and initially consisted of 13 different schools located both to the south and west of the Appalachian Mountains. Ten out of the original 13 schools remain part of the SEC, including Vanderbilt University, the University of Tennessee, Mississippi State University, the University of Mississippi, Louisiana State University, the University of Kentucky, the University of Georgia, the University of Florida, Auburn University and the University of Alabama.

The three schools that left the SEC include the University of the South, Tulane University and Georgia Institute of Technology, which is more commonly referred to as Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech left the SEC in 1964 and was independent in football until it joined the Atlantic Coast Conference. Despite Georgia Tech and Georgia being in separate conferences, the schools have a tradition of playing head to head every year.
