SEC football crossover opponents announced

This might be an exercise in futility, but if the Southeastern Conference is going to play football, this is the plan

The SEC announced today the two additional crossover games each team will play as part of the 10-game league schedule this upcoming season.

There are of course winners and losers, though some of the teams in the west for sure got the worst of it. Arkansas gets both Georgia and Florida, both teams that could be in the picture for the SEC title. But the defending champs in LSU can’t complain that much, as although their annual crossover opponent is Florida, the two additional games this year are only Missouri and a roadie at Vanderbilt. And last year they brought more fans to Nashville than the Commodores did.

There’s no good way to break up a schedule like this, but it seems the conference went for competitive balance. We’ll see how it affects the win totals when they’re issued by the sports books.
