Despite having several teams compete for national championships in the 2017-18 school year, Alabama athletics did not perform well against SEC competition, going 72-107-1 in head-to-head, dual competition.
The Crimson Tide only had a winning record against one school, Vanderbilt, going a combined 4-3 against the Commodores in both men’s and women’s sports.
As for rivalry matchups, Alabama posted records of 10-15 against Auburn, 6-10 against Tennessee, and 6-7-1 against LSU, with the draw coming in a midseason soccer match.
Unsurprisingly, football posted the best record and winning percentage against SEC opponents, going 8-1 for a winning percentage of .888, including the thrilling overtime victory against Georgia in the national championship game.
Dana Duckworth led the Crimson Tide gymnastics program to a 6-2 record against SEC opponents for a .750 win percentage, second-best at Alabama in the past school year.
Alabama’s head-to-head dual record overall wasn’t helped by the fact that some of its best teams – men’s and women’s golf and men’s track and field – play few if any dual competitions, with golf only going head-to-head against SEC opponents in match play at the SEC Championships.
Men’s swimming and diving lost both of its head-to-head matchups in conference last season, technically posting the worst SEC winning percentage, but most of UA’s competitions in this sport are meets with three or more teams competing. The Alabama men finished 13th at the NCAA Championships.
Women’s tennis had the worst actual SEC record, going 2-12 in conference play for a .142 winning percentage.
