As of right now, Spurrier is the SEC's best spread-coverer (ATS == Against The Spread). I would not have guessed this. But they covered the spread in both of their losses, so it makes sense.
*The difference in the number of games is because I am only counting games against Division I-A schools.
Here are the against-the-spread numbers for the BCS and SEC champions in the BCS era.
What jumps out at me about these numbers are just how good the 2008 Florida and 2005 Texas teams really were. It is really tough to consistently cover two and three touchdown spreads, but these teams did it. Same goes for USC and LSU in 2003. Really impressive.
And now on to current events.

Georgia +16 over Florida
