Clear Your Schedule for these Games
The 2012 college football season is just around the corner, and fans across the country are counting down to kick-off.
The SEC is the defending 6-time national champions, and with two of the consensus top three teams coming into the season (LSU and Alabama), and the most teams ranked preseason of any conference, it is sure to be another wild ride.
Here are the games you don't want to miss for 2012. Let us know what your top games are in the comments below.
These games just missed the cut, but are sure to be full of excitement, and will most definitely impact the national landscape.
Oct 20, South Carolina at Florida
The Gamecocks only beat the Gators by five last season and they go to the Swamp this year in a pivotal SEC East match.
Sept 1, Alabama vs Michigan
Not an SEC game, but it is the most important non-conference game for the national prestige of the conference.
Nov 10, Arkansas at South Carolina
This is another significant cross division conference game. Arkansas defeated South Carolina last season 44-28.
Nov 10, Georgia at Auburn
The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry is always worth mentioning, but hopefully it is closer than the Bulldogs thumping of the Tigers last season.
Nov 24, Mississippi State at Ole Miss
With few winnable games in conference, the Bulldogs need to continue the dominance of the Egg Bowl.
10. Sept 15, Florida at Tennessee
The Gators defeated the Volunteers last season 33-23 in this once meaningful rivalry. The Vols have now lost seven in a row to the Gators.
Whether it is Muschamp or Dooley, the coach's seat is likely to get much warmer for whoever loses here. Tennessee lost every rivalry game in 2011, even against Kentucky, so they need this home win desperately to become relevant again.
