Note-I will be putting the schedule predictions by myself (IWSTBBACS) and Athlon Sports’ college football pre-season magazine to compare.

The biggest games inside the SEC
1.Auburn at. Alabama
The iron bowl is always the biggest game on the schedule down south no matter the circumstances.We expect a duel between Jalen Hurts/Tua and Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham.
2.Georgia vs. Florida
Georgia and Florida will meet in Jacksonville again.While Georgia is the favorite to win the division,Florida can play spoiler and ruin the dawg’s great season.
3.Auburn at. Mississippi State
This game should be the duel for second place in the SEC West.Don’t expect either side to not give in for a shot to dethrone Alabama as the king of the SEC west.
4.Georgia at. South Carolina
South Carolina is another school that should play spoiler to Georgia on its own turf.South Carolina should be winners of the this game if their defense can step up.
5.Florida at. Mississippi State
Former Mississippi State Head Coach Dan Mullen returns in this cross-divisional match up.Both schools should be at the top of their respective divisions.
