BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU, Alabama and Florida have more than
their unbeaten records in common.

They're also the top three defensive teams in the Southeastern
Conference.

The SEC has long had a reputation for teams that win
championships with defense. Numbers bear out the popular idea that
the conference produces many of the best defensive players in the
country.

According to STATS LLC, former SEC players have combined for
more NFL defensive starts since 2000 than players from any other
major BCS conference. Also during that span, SEC players have
registered more NFL sacks and more interceptions.

Meanwhile, SEC teams have won the past four BCS national
championships, and six of 12.
