Yes-we are a year away from the 2020 College Football season but let’s take a look at the notes from the 2020 SEC Football Schedule.

Key Games from each week

Week 1 (September 5)
Alabama vs USC (Arlington,TX)
Ole Miss vs Baylor (Houston,TX)
Georgia vs Virginia (Atlanta,GA)

These are the only three major games in week one of the 2020 schedule as Alabama, Georgia, and Ole Miss look to get wins over major Power 5 squads.

Week 2 (September 12)
Arkansas at Notre Dame
Auburn vs North Carolina (Atlanta,GA)
Kentucky at Florida
Texas at LSU
Mississippi State at North Carolina State
Vanderbilt at Missouri
Tennessee at Oklahoma

In week two, the speed picks up for multiple SEC squads. Arkansas, Auburn, LSU, Mississippi State, and Tennessee look to improve their records versus big time out of conference foes and Kentucky, Florida, Vanderbilt, and Missouri look to get a headstart on conference play.

Week 3 (September 19)
Georgia at Alabama
Auburn at Ole Miss
Arkansas at Mississippi State
Missouri at South Carolina
Colorado at Texas A&M

The headliner is Georgia heading to Tuscaloosa for the first time since 2007, which will likely be a game that ESPN’s College Gameday goes to. Key conference games for Arkansas, Auburn, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss, and South Carolina will likely shape the early goings of 2020 SEC conference play. On another note, Colorado and Texas A&M will face off for the first time since both bolted from the Big 12 in the early 2010s.

Week 4 (September 26)
Texas A&M vs Arkansas (Arlington,TX)
South Carolina at Kentucky
Ole Miss at LSU
Florida at Tennessee

The headliners in week four are the annual Southwest Classic at AT&T Stadium between Arkansas and Texas A&M and Ole Miss heading to Death Valley to face LSU. Both games should shape the SEC’s west division in the early goings. Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Tennessee should all be teams that will be in the thick of things in the SEC’s east division.

Week 5 (October 3)
Kentucky at Auburn
South Carolina at Florida
Vanderbilt at Georgia
Alabama at Ole Miss
Texas A&M at Mississippi State
Missouri at Tennessee

October starts with a big conference weekend in the SEC. This should celitify the conference standings as October begins.

Week 6 (October 10)
Alabama at Arkansas
LSU at Florida
Auburn at Georgia
Missouri at BYU
Tennessee at South Carolina
Ole Miss at Vanderbilt

Three protected cross-division rivalries: LSU-Florida, Auburn-Georgia, and Ole Miss-Vanderbilt. This is the first time in forever that the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry (AUB-UGA) will be played in October setting up the SEC East for a tight finish at the end of the season. Missouri heading to BYU is an interesting out of conference game as we will see how the tigers can play out of conference without QB Kelly Bryant.

Week 7 (October 17)
Mississippi State at Alabama
LSU at Arkansas
Texas A&M at Auburn
Vanderbilt at Kentucky
Florida at Ole Miss
Georgia at Missouri

Arkansas and LSU will face off to find out the winner of the Golden Boot in a big week of conference games.

Week 8 (October 24)
Mississippi State at LSU
Kentucky at Missouri
Alabama at Tennessee

The cross-divisional rivalry between Alabama and Tennessee should be a treat from Neyland Stadium as Mississippi State, LSU, Missouri, and Kentucky look to get to bowl games.

Week 9 (October 31)
Tennessee at Arkansas
Florida vs. Georgia (Jacksonville)
Auburn at Mississippi State
South Carolina at Vanderbilt

Halloween will give us a small slate of conference games but Florida and Georgia will face off as the headliner of the week. So, if you need to plan anything big, this is the week to plan it.

Week 10 (November 7)
Arkansas at Auburn
Alabama at LSU
Missouri at Mississippi State
Georgia at South Carolina
Kentucky at Tennessee
Ole Miss at Texas A&M
Florida at Vanderbilt

Alabama and LSU will likely meet to find out who will have the upper hand in the SEC West as November begins. While there are a ton of conference games, the top teams just need to win these games, as most are irrelevant.

Week 11 (November 14)
Ole Miss at Arkansas
Missouri at Florida
Tennessee at Georgia
Mississippi State at Kentucky
South Carolina at LSU
Vanderbilt at Texas A&M

Ole Miss-Arkansas, Mississippi State-Kentucky headline another big week of conference play as some bottom dwellerrs of the conference look to get into bowl games.

Week 12 (November 21)
Texas A&M at Alabama
LSU at Auburn
Georgia at Kentucky

Auburn and Alabama will play conference foes the week before the Iron Bowl for the first time since 2008. Most likely, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, and Texas A&M will determine the pecking order in the SEC West.

Week 13 (November 26,28)
Mississippi State at Ole Miss
Auburn at Alabama
Florida at Florida State
Georgia Tech at Georgia
Kentucky at Louisville
Arkansas at Missouri
South Carolina at Clemson
LSU at Texas A&M
Tennessee at Vanderbilt

Obviously it is rivalry week and the two winners of each division will (if have not have been) decided on who will go to the SEC Championship game.
