SEC newcomers holding their own

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) -

It looks like bigger does mean better in the competitive Southeastern Conference -- not just in terms of television ratings, but on the field as well.

When Texas A&M and Missouri began SEC play a season ago, few doubted the addition of those schools would bring more TV viewers to the league's games. Still, there were questions about whether adding the former Big 12 teams would dilute the quality of on-the-field competition in a conference boasting seven straight national titles.

Conference coaches including Alabama's Nick Saban say the additions have made the SEC better.

This season, Missouri is unbeaten and the Aggies' only loss has come against the No. 1 Crimson Tide. Meanwhile, stadiums league-wide have been filled closer to capacity during the past two seasons.
