Report: SEC goes to 10-game, conference-only schedule for football

The season will begin on September 26.

And here we go.

The first part of this — the 10-game, conference-only schedule — was somewhat predictable given that the Big Ten and Pac-12 have already announced this. The surprise here is the start date: the first game of the season will be moved back three weeks. Hence why I had not been doing the countdown: the season opener isn’t going to be on September 5 and it isn’t going to be against Mercer, either. The September 12 game against Missouri also will be pushed back.

Details on who the remaining two opponents will be, and how the schedule will be affected, are unknown at this time.
