No spreads yet, but at least we know who is (allegedly) playing where

There’s still a lot that needs to happen before players actually take to the field, but today the Southeastern Conference released the schedule for the opening week of the season, which in this modified 2020 schedule will be September 26th.

Alabama at Missouri
Florida at Ole Miss
Georgia at Arkansas
Kentucky at Auburn
Mississippi State at LSU
Tennessee at South Carolina
Vanderbilt at Texas A&M

There are five games that are cross-division, and only two within their normal side of the league with the Mississippi State Bulldogs and new head coach Mike Leach heading to Baton Rouge for their crack at Ed Orgeron and the defending champion LSU Tigers. Also the Tennessee Volunteers will be in Columbia to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks, who have opened on a weeknight for the past few seasons. We’ll see if for television purposes that game gets moved to Thursday or Friday night.

Consider this schedule and everything else related to college football written in pencil, but we’ll have odds for the games posted as soon as they’re available. But to the conference where football means more than any other, they’ve now got something to hope for a mere 40 days from today.
