After years, arguably decades of trying the ACC has finally caught the SEC as a football conference. What better way to compare conferences than head-to-head meetings. The ACC and SEC football teams play each other a lot during the course of a year. Going back to 2006, the ACC and SEC have met at least 8 times in head to head battles. If you can’t use head-to-head results what can you use?

Since the start of 2014, the ACC is 16-12 against the SEC. That’s 28 head-to-head to battles, and the ACC is beating the SEC.

Here are the results of the last 3 years pulled from mcubed.net of the ACC-SEC matchups (  A great site for Conference Comparisons ).

Leading the ACC charge against the SEC are Clemson (4-2),  FSU (5-0), Georgia Tech (4-1) who are a combined 13-3 against the SEC since 2014.  The other 3 ACC wins over the SEC belong to Louisville. The Cardinals are (3-3) against the SEC.

CBSSportsline.com even ranked the ACC ahead of the SEC this year, but so did the Colley’s Bias (used during the BCS era), and Campus Insiders. What does this really mean in the end?

Well for – one outside of Alabama the SEC has dropped off as a football conference. With that decline, though the ACC has taken the opportunity to catch up with the SEC and improve considerably itself.

The ACC needs to continue this positive trend.
