Win projections for every SEC team in 2024

College football realignment has reached the forefront for nearly every major conference heading into the 2024 season, especially in the SEC. Texas and Oklahoma will officially leave the Big 12 to join what is still considered the toughest conference in college football.

While the Texas Longhorns were just a play away from facing the Michigan Wolverines in the National Championship game, it just wasn’t meant to be, and entering their first season in the SEC, the road only gets tougher compared to some of the softer defenses the Longhorns have faced during their time in the Big 12.

Recruiting-wise, NIL plus the evergrowing transfer portal are just a few headaches every SEC head coach will continue to deal with until regulations are eventually imposed. Still, hey, I can’t say it isn’t entertaining.

For Texas A&M, new head coach Mike Elko has already proven his recruiting chops after signing the Aggies’ three remaining targets, including 2024 5-star athlete Terry Bussey. Combined with 22 incoming transfers, Texas A&M’s chances of earning their first nine, or possibly ten-win season in 2024 is more realistic than some may think.

This week, Fan Duel released its win total projections for every SEC team, which will likely lead to a plethora of “hot takes” for certain programs that will likely perform much better or worse than said projections come Fall.

With that, here is every projected win total for all 16 SEC teams, according to Fan Duel.
