Greg Sankey discusses likely realignment for SEC
Realignment appears to be the word of the day in college football as conferences try to figure out scheduling for the future. Already, the Pac-12 has eliminated divisions for the 2022 season and will take its top two finishers for the conference championship game.
The Pac-12 is not the only conference considering that model with the B1G and ACC also reportedly examining a switch. Now, the SEC can also be added to that group.
Talking to the media at SEC Spring Meetings Tuesday, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey revealed that the conference is focused “on the single-division model.” He did leave the door open for other possibilities but also said a decision on divisions is likely to come sooner rather than later.
A decision on the future scheduling model will come “sooner rather than later,” per Sankey, maybe this week. (But maybe not.)

The SEC will also be expanding with Texas and Oklahoma set to join the conference in the near future. A single-division model would seemingly make scheduling easier when those programs join.
