The Southeastern Conference has been triumphant in the last 7 BCS Championship games.
If you’re a SEC college football fan it’s time to plan your weekends around the conference gridiron schedule.
Most of the teams will begin their seasons on Saturday, August 31.
Even before the actual weekend hits, fans in the Carolinas will be afforded the opportunity to watch their teams
compete on Thursday night, August 29th. That is when the ACC NC Tar Heels meets SEC South Carolina in the season’s first contest. The affair will be held in Columbia, SC, but for those of you who prefer not to make the journey across
state lines, the game will be televised nationally on ESPN at 6ET. More good news according to Coach Steve Spurrier will have South Carolina Heisman hopeful, Jadeveon Clowney, on the field despite his recent injury in practice.
Before competing in head to head competition, the SEC will get the opportunity to exhibit just how good they are
on that initial Saturday against teams from other leagues. Once again Alabama Crimson Tide fans can tune their HD flat
screens or other assorted mobile devices to ESPN when the Tide collides with Virginia Tech at 5:30ET with the
game being played in Atlanta.
More “must see” SEC TV will follow pitting the Georgia Bulldogs against the Clemson Tigers.
Over the next two weeks early pivotal match-ups will occur between the University of Florida and Miami (Sept.7)
that any self-respecting Gator fans or Hurricane watcher won’t want to miss. An early inner SEC contest will be on that same day featuring South Carolina and Georgia.
On Sept.14 you’ll have Tennessee Volunteer fans travelling to the far northwest for an early test against Oregon. Perhaps
the most compelling game of the first month of the season will find last year’s BCS Champion Alabama Crimson Tide travelling to College Station, Texas to meet the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner and now controversial Texas A&M Aggies QB, Johnny Manziel(#2)
Other matchups that SEC fans will not want to miss during the season Includes:
Georgia vs. Florida in Jacksonville on Nov.2
Ole Miss at Mississippi State Thanksgiving evening (11/28) once again brought to you by the “Worldwide leader in Sports”
(ESPN) and the Razorbacks of Arkansas/LSU rivalry on Fri. 11/29.
Don’t forget any of the 14 SEC teams that will be battling on a weekly basis including Vanderbilt, Missouri and Kentucky
of the East Division and Auburn in the West.
Any one of them has a chance to appear in the SEC Championship game on Dec. 7 which concludes the 2013
regular schedule and sets things up for the postseason. If past history is any indication, you will want to have an authentic SEC jersey handy at the end of December and early January to display your college allegiance at whichever Bowl game your team is appearing.
Oh yes, another date to circle on your 2014 calendar is that of Jan.6 when the BCS Championship Game will
take place at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA.
I love college sports, especially football. You may not always agree with me, but you will see I'm passionate.
