The SEC has some interesting out of conference match ups this year. Not all of these are high profile games but they were enough to catch my eye. The biggest thing that jumps out is 6 SEC schools have big openers in the first weekend of football. Clemson, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State, and North Carolina provide very tough test for their SEC opponents. The next week Florida rekindles their in state matchup with Miami. The following week Ole Miss and Tennessee have tough road trips to Austin and Eugene. Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina finish with their traditional rivalries.

All in all its a fun slate that should provide some cool games. With so much of college football based on tv viewership, many of these should draw nice interest. The SEC conference slate is brutal enough but that doesn’t stop everyone from scheduling to prove who the best conference is. I’ve already started my kickoff countdown and I’m patiently waiting week 1 where we will see what a lot of the SEC is made of.
