The Southeastern Conference, also known as SEC, was founded in 1933 by 13 members in Knoxville, Tennessee but the first football game wasn’t played until 1980. Founding members of the conference include University of Alabama, Auburn University, University of Florida, University of Georgia, University of Kentucky, Louisiana State University, University of Mississippi, Mississippi State University, University of Tennessee and Vanderbilt University. The SEC has since expanded to include University of Arkansas, University of South Carolina, University of Missouri and Texas A&M University. In total, the conference’s members have won 27 national football championships. The Southeastern Conference is currently headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama. Greg Sankey currently serves as the conference’s commissioner.
