The SEC was established in December 1932, when the 13 members of the Southern Conference located west and south of the Appalachian Mountains left to form their own conference. The thirteen charter members were the universities of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Auburn, Louisiana State, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Sewanee, Georgia Tech, and Tulane universities.
Sewanee left the SEC in 1940. Georgia Tech left the SEC in 1964. Tulane left the SEC in 1966. The SEC expanded from 10 to 12 members in 1991 with the addition of the University of Arkansas from the Southwest Conference and the University of South Carolina from the independent ranks in football and the Metro Conference in other sports.
