List Rules Vote up the SEC schools with the historically best football team.

The best SEC football teams often are right at the top of the list of best teams in college football, mostly thanks to Nick Saban's work with the Alabama Crimson Tide. But the LSU Tigers and Tennsessee Volunteers have their own storied SEC football programs that have produced championships and Hall of Famers like Peyton Manning and Y.A. Tittle, two of the best NFL quarterbacks of all time.

It's not just ancient history, though, for the top teams in the SEC. Many of the best current NFL players come from the Southeastern Conference, like the Auburn Tigers' Cam Newton and the Texas A&M Aggies' Von Miller. 

When lining up all SEC football programs, which one gets the nod for best in the conference?
