Pac 12 and SEC Non-conference Road Schedules 2008-2014


From a Utah fan site

An interesting comparison that ultimately shows what virtually every Pac 12 fan knows (and that SEC fans also know, but aren't willing to admit) - the Conference of Champions isn't afraid to play quality opponents out of conference, and isn't afraid to play them on the road. SEC teams prefer their 8 home games and a schedule loaded with

The two most interesting things to me that come out of this article are that 1. Pac 12 teams average one non-conference road game per team per year, and 2. Probably the two best teams out of the SEC during the time frame examined (Alabama and LSU) have each played a grand total of 2 (!) non-conference road games in seven years. One of LSU's "road" games was in Texas against a team that traveled five times as far as the Tigers did.

Washington and Utah were the only two teams in either conference that played in all four of the mainland time zones, and with the Huskies' trip to Hawaii in August, will end up playing in five. The Pac 12 averages almost as many road games in the Central and Eastern time zones as the SEC does each year, even though the SEC is in those time zones.
