SEC football officially kicks off in a week, and one team – Ole Miss – will go on the road at Vanderbilt to kick off the conference schedule.
Playing on the road in the SEC is tough. It’s even tougher exiting with a win. Specifically, winning championships starts at home, and Alabama has proven that over the last five years. They’re 32-3 to lead the SEC, with LSU second at 31-5. Surprisingly, South Carolina has the SEC’s third best home record the last five years, going 30-5. That’s better than Florida and Georgia. The Cock Pit is loud and rowdy, and Steve Spurrier has defended his home turf well.
Tennessee’s 23-14 record has to improve under Butch Jones, and Neyland has been quiet the last few years.
