The SEC didn’t have a team in the national championship game for the first time in nine years, but many still consider them to be the best conference in the country. Alabama seems to be at the top of the conference every year, but others aren't so lucky. Here are three SEC teams that will have disappointing seasons in 2015.
Texas A&M had a disappointing 2014 season after losing Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel to the NFL, posting a 8-5 record after being ranked in the top five in the country. However, things will only get worse for the Aggies in 2015. Not only do they have to go through the gauntlet that is the SEC West, they have a young, unproved quarterback in Kyle Allen, and their defense is one of the worst in the country.
The Aggies will win some games, but they'll be fighting to just be bowl eligible at the end of the season.
Mizzou has to stop overachieving at some point, right? QB Maty Mauk is back and is one of the best in the conference, but the defense will undoubtedly take a hit with the loss of several starters, including star defensive end Shane Ray. The Tigers do avoid Alabama, LSU, and Auburn from the SEC West, but they do face preseason top-five Mississippi State.
Missouri will still have a good season, but they won't win the SEC East for a third straight year, making this season a disappointment.
Ole Miss nearly won the SEC West last year, but the loss of quarterback Bo Wallace will hurt this team dramatically. The Rebels still boast a lot of talent - particularly on defense - but they won't be able to navigate the SEC West without a good player under center. That could cost them four or five losses in conference, turning a top ten preseason team into one in the middle of the conference.Back to the NCAA Newsfeed
