After getting through a nasty schedule to win the national title, this year’s slate will seem like a piece of cake. The Gators get Tennessee, Auburn and Florida State at home, but they have to go on the road to face LSU in what might be a preview of the SEC championship. Even though things are easier than last year, there’s a nasty stretch in the back half with four of five games away from Gainesville including sneaky-tough games at Kentucky and South Carolina along with the showdowns with LSU and Georgia. Outside of the date with FSU, the non-conference schedule is a joke playing Western Kentucky, Troy, and Florida Atlantic.

Florida
Sept. 1 Western Kentucky
Sept. 8 Troy

The Dawgs will be tested right off the bat with a nasty home opener against an explosive Oklahoma State team followed up by the SEC opener against South Carolina. The road schedule is tough going to Alabama, Tennessee, Vanderbilt (you don’t have to tell Georgia fans how good the Commodores can be) and Georgia Tech along with the Cocktail-not-a-Cocktail Party with Florida. It would’ve been nice to get more tough teams at home with Auburn the toughest of the bunch.

Georgia
Sept. 1 Oklahoma State
Sept. 8 South Carolina
Sept. 15 Western Carolina
Sept. 22 at Alabama
Sept. 29 Ole Miss
Oct. 6 at Tennessee

With eight home games, UK has the type of schedule to make some real noise if it can be tough in Commonwealth Stadium from the start. Can the Wildcats use the home field advantage to beat Louisville, LSU, Florida and Tennessee? Well, no, but they should be able to win at least one of those, if not two. The road schedule is tough, but it could be worse facing Arkansas, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Georgia. There aren’t two road games in a row until November when UK faces the Commodores and Bulldogs.

Kentucky
Sept. 1 Eastern Kentucky
Sept. 8 Kent State
Sept. 15 Louisville
Sept. 22 at Arkansas
Sept. 29 Florida Atlantic

Realistic record: 8-4
It would be nice if there were more of the tough games at home early on, but the games against UL Lafayette, South Carolina State, Mississippi State and Kentucky, if all goes according to plan, should form a nice base of wins. Florida and Clemson come to Columbia to close out the season after a brutal two-game road run at Tennessee and Arkansas. The two early road games, at Georgia and LSU, certainly aren’t easy, but a date at North Carolina should make up for it.

South Carolina
Sept. 1 UL Lafayette
Sept. 8 at Georgia
Sept. 15 South Carolina State
Sept. 22 at LSU
Sept. 29 Mississippi State
Oct. 4 Kentucky
Oct. 13 at North Carolina
Oct. 20 Vanderbilt

Does any national title-caliber team (at least in expectations from the fan base) have two tougher road games before September 15th than going to California and Florida? The rest of the away dates aren’t horrible facing Mississippi State, Alabama and Kentucky, while there’s a nice four-game homestand over the second half of the season against South Carolina, UL Lafayette, Arkansas and Kentucky to potentially make a big run.

Tennessee
Sept. 1 at California
Sept. 8 Southern Miss
Sept. 15 at Florida
Sept. 22 Arkansas State
Oct. 6 Georgia
Oct. 13 at Mississippi State
Oct. 20 at Alabama
Oct. 27 South Carolina
Nov. 3 UL Lafayette
Nov. 10 Arkansas
Nov. 17 Vanderbilt
Nov. 24 at Kentucky
- Almost certain win
- Likely loss
- Could go either way

Vanderbilt
Realistic best case record with this schedule: 7-5
Barring total disaster worst case record: 4-8
Realistic record: 6-6
Four home games to start the season and five in the first six have the potential to lead to a huge start if there could be a upset or two over Georgia and/or Alabama. There are only four road games (Auburn, South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee), and if VU can win at least one of them, it’ll likely go bowling. The non-conference slate is a joke facing Richmond, Eastern Michigan, Miami University, and a home game against Wake Forest.

Vanderbilt
Sept. 1 Richmond
Sept. 8 Alabama
Sept. 15 Ole Miss
Sept. 29 Eastern Michigan
Oct. 6 at Auburn
Oct. 13 Georgia
Oct. 20 at South Carolina
Oct. 27 Miami Univ.
Nov. 3 at Florida
Nov. 10 Kentucky
Nov. 17 at Tennessee
Nov. 24 Wake Forest
- Almost certain win

If the Tide can roll at home, it’ll be a great season. The three SEC road games before the season finale at Auburn are as easy as can be playing Vanderbilt, Ole Miss and Mississippi State. There’s a neutral site date with Florida State in Jacksonville to save the non-conference slate from being considered a total joke. The real excitement is over the home slate playing Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee and LSU in SEC play.

Alabama
Sept. 1 Western Carolina
Sept. 8 at Vanderbilt
Sept. 15 Arkansas
Sept. 22 Georgia
Sept. 29 Florida State (in Jackson.)
Oct. 6 Houston
Oct. 13 at Ole Miss
Oct. 20 Tennessee
Nov. 3 LSU
Nov. 10 at Mississippi State
Nov. 17 UL Monroe
Nov. 24 at Auburn
- Almost certain win

A hot start is a must with five home games in the first six and seven of the first nine, but they’re not all layups with Auburn to close out the run. Actually, most of them are easy getting space-fillers against Troy, North Texas, UT Chattanooga and FIU. The road game in the group is at Alabama, which should set the tone for the SEC West season. Road dates at Tennessee and LSU late might be too much to overcome for another division crown.

Arkansas
Sept. 1 Troy
Sept. 15 at Alabama
Sept. 22 Kentucky
Sept. 29 North Texas
Oct. 6 UT Chattanooga
Oct. 13 Auburn
Oct. 20 at Ole Miss
Oct. 27 FIU
Nov. 3 South Carolina
Nov. 10 at Tennessee
Nov. 17 Mississippi State
Nov. 24 at LSU
- Almost certain win
- Likely loss
- Could go either way

Auburn
Realistic best case record with this schedule: 10-2
Barring total disaster worst case record: 7-5
Realistic record: 9-3
Great at home, awful, awful, awful on the road. The four home games to start the year aren’t walks in the park playing Kansas State, South Florida, Mississippi State, and the high-octane New Mexico State offense before going on the road to face Florida. The three other road games are at Arkansas, LSU, and Georgia. However, if the Tigers can beat the Bulldogs, there’s a chance for a great run to end the year with Ole Miss, Tennessee Tech, and the Iron Bowl against Alabama in Jordan-Hare.

Auburn
Sept. 1 Kansas State
Sept. 8 South Florida
Sept. 15 Mississippi State
Sept. 22 New Mexico State
Sept. 29 at Florida
Oct. 6 Vanderbilt
Oct. 13 at Arkansas
Oct. 20 at LSU
Oct. 27 Ole Miss
Nov. 3 Tennessee Tech
Nov. 10 at Georgia
Nov. 24 Alabama
- Almost certain win
- Likely loss
- Could go either way

LSU
Realistic best case record with this schedule: 12-0
Barring total disaster worst case record: 9-3
Realistic record: 11-1
The schedule last year had four brutal road games and eight manageable home dates. This season, the scheduling gods are much kinder with the five away games at Mississippi State, Kentucky, Tulane, Alabama and Ole Miss. Any team that thinks it can win the national title should be able to get through those five without much of a problem. The early home game with Virginia Tech should be as good as any BCS matchup in January, while the showdown with Florida will be as good as whatever the national title game turns out to be. Missing Georgia and Tennessee from the East is a plus.

LSU
Aug. 30 at Mississippi State
Sept. 8 Virginia Tech
Sept. 15 Middle Tennessee
Sept. 22 South Carolina
Sept. 29 at Tulane
Oct. 6 Florida
Oct. 13 at Kentucky
Oct. 20 Auburn
Nov. 3 at Alabama
Nov. 10 Louisiana Tech
Nov. 17 at Ole Miss
Nov. 24 Arkansas
- Almost certain win
- Likely loss
- Could go either way

Ole Miss
Realistic best case record with this schedule: 8-4
Barring total disaster worst case record: 4-8
Realistic record: 6-6

There can’t be any complaints about the road schedule facing Memphis, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Auburn and Mississippi State and without two in a row. However, there are only two certain home wins (Louisiana Tech and Northwestern State) with Missouri, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas and LSU all going to be planning on coming away from Oxford with a win. The Rebels have to win at least two of those tough home games to think about going bowling.

Ole Miss
Sept. 1 at Memphis
Sept. 8 Missouri
Sept. 15 at Vanderbilt
Sept. 22 Florida
Sept. 29 at Georgia
Oct. 6 Louisiana Tech
Oct. 13 Alabama
Oct. 20 Arkansas
Oct. 27 at Auburn
Nov. 3 Northwestern State
Nov. 17 LSU
Nov. 24 at Mississippi State
- Almost certain win
- Likely loss
- Could go either way

Mississippi State
Realistic best case record with this schedule: 7-5
Barring total disaster worst case record: 4-8
Realistic record: 5-7
There are only six home games, and there’s an interesting mix of nasty games (but chances to make a statement) against LSU, Tennessee and Alabama along with three must wins against Jacksonville State, UAB and Ole Miss. Beating Tulane on the road is a must with tough away games including a non-conference game at West Virginia. On the plus side, MSU misses Florida and Georgia from the East, but it has to deal with Tennessee, Kentucky and South Carolina.

Mississippi State
Aug. 30 LSU
Sept. 8 at Tulane
Sept. 15 at Auburn
Sept. 22 Jacksonville State
Sept. 29 at South Carolina
Oct. 6 UAB
Oct. 13 Tennessee
Oct. 20 at West Virginia
Oct. 27 at Kentucky
Nov. 10 Alabama
Nov. 17 at Arkansas
Nov. 24 Ole Miss
- Almost certain win
- Likely loss
- Could go either way
