"SEC league games have become more competitive lately. In 2011, when Alabama and LSU dominated the SEC and played for the national championship, only 30 percent of conference games were decided by one score. That increased to 39 percent in 2012, 40 percent in 2013 and 44 percent in 2014, before it dipped slightly to 42 percent in 2015. It's still a far cry from the days with lower-scoring games. In 2006, 53 percent of SEC league games were decided by one score or less."
