Every SEC schedule features a rough three-game stretch that will present a survival of the fittest-type challenge, and we’ll rank the toughest three-game stretches in the coming days.

But for now, here’s a look at each SEC East team’s toughest three-game stretch:

Florida

  • Nov. 2 – vs. Georgia
  • Nov. 9 – Vanderbilt
  • Nov. 16 – at South Carolina

Buzz: November is a brutal month for Florida. Not only do Georgia, Vanderbilt and South Carolina come calling, but FSU also awaits on November 30th.

Georgia

  • Aug. 31 – at Clemson
  • Sept. 7 – South Carolina
  • Sept. 21 – North Texas

Buzz: Georgia has a brutal opening two weeks but will find relief when North Texas comes to Athens the third week. Georgia’s schedule is very manageable, but the beginning is tough as nails.

Kentucky

  • Sept. 28 – Florida
  • Oct. 5 – at South Carolina
  • Oct. 12 – Alabama

Buzz: Kentucky arguably has the toughest three-game schedule of any team in the SEC. Florida, South Carolina and Alabama is just brutal, and playing the three in consecutive weeks is awful.

Missouri

  • Oct. 12 – at Georgia
  • Oct. 19 – Florida
  • Oct. 26 – South Carolina

Buzz: Missouri has a nasty SEC East three-game draw, featuring a road trip to Georgia and hosting both Florida and South Carolina in consecutive weeks.

South Carolina

  • Nov. 16 – Florida
  • Nov. 23 – Coastal Carolina
  • Nov. 30 – Clemson

Buzz: South Carolina’s schedule is the most favorable of the SEC East powers, and hosting Florida and Clemson with Coastal Carolina sandwiched in between makes it manageable.

Tennessee

  • Oct. 19 – South Carolina
  • Oct. 26 – at Alabama
  • Nov. 2 – at Missouri

Buzz: Tennessee has a brutal schedule overall, but the three toughest games come in consecutive weeks with a home game against South Carolina and back-to-back road trips to Alabama and Missouri.

Vanderbilt

  • Oct. 19 – Georgia
  • Oct. 26 – at Texas A&M
  • Nov. 9 – at Florida

Buzz: Vanderbilt has a favorable schedule overall, but hosting Georgia and back-to-back road trips to Texas A&M and Florida will make it tough for the Dores to steal any of the three.
