SEC leads all conferences in 2009-2010 overall Conference vs. Conference survey

Birmingham (SEC) -  In a statistical survey that is based on NCAA championship and rankings, the Southeastern Conference placed first in the both men's sports and women's sports.

The survey, compiled each year since 1986 by Bo Carter, takes into account final NCAA championship standings in 10 men's and 11 women's sports and poll rankings in football.  Each conference gets 20 points for a team that wins a national championship, 19 for a second place finish and down to 1 point for a 20th place finish.

Wrestling is included in the men's totals, but the sport is not sponsored by the Southeastern Conference.

In the 10 men's sports for the survey, the SEC had 398 points with the Pac-10 coming in second with 396 points, followed by the Big 12 with 395 points, Big Ten with 279.5 points, ACC with 238 points and the Big East with 83 points.

In the 11 women's sports the SEC sponsors, the SEC led the way with 502.5 points followed by the Pac-10 with 480 points, the Big 12 with 382 points, ACC with 369 points, Big Ten with 221 points and the Big East with 164 points.

Combining the 21 sports in the survey, the SEC had 900.5 points to pace all conferences followed by the Pac-10 with 876 points, Big 12 with 777 points, ACC with 607 points, Big Ten with 500.5 points and the Big East with 247 points.

In 2009-10, the SEC had four team national championships – football (Alabama), men's indoor track & field (Florida), women's swimming & diving (Florida) and baseball (South Carolina).  Also, the league recorded four national runners-up finishes – men's outdoor track & field (Florida), women's indoor track & field (Tennessee), men's tennis (Tennessee) and women's tennis (Florida).

The SEC had at least one of its teams finish in the top eight in the nation in 17 of the league's 20 sponsored sports.

The SEC has had the highest men's point total in 17 seasons since 1986-87, the first year this survey was done, and in 11 of the last 12 seasons.  The SEC has had the highest women's point total five times since 1986-87, including three of the last six seasons.
