Anchor Drop, August 17, 2020: The SEC Reveals Itself

Oh, we’re finding out the schedule tonight. The new schedule.

NCAA Football: SEC Media Day Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

So, it’s been several weeks since the SEC announced that it was going to a ten-game, conference-only schedule for the 2020 football season, and that season will start on the new date of September 26. Last week we learned that Vanderbilt’s two additional opponents will be LSU and Mississippi State, and tonight at 6:00 PM CT, the SEC will reveal the new schedule on a live special on the SEC Network... because, you know, they need content, I guess.

(Actually, the Week 1 schedule will be revealed on the Paul Finebaum Show, because why not make people watch Finebaum.)

Anyway, the linked article also reveals that the SEC’s ten-game schedule will be played out over eleven weeks, ending on December 5, and the SEC Championship game will be played on December 19. (When does basketball season start?)

Andrew has your MLB daily thread later today, and I guess you guys can go ahead and use this as your watch party thread for the schedule reveal, because why not.
