Like most Auburn fans have expressed, Anthony Schwartz is fed up the Tigers annually having arguably the toughest schedule in the nation.

With the Southeastern Conference moving to a 10-game, conference-only schedule for the 2020 season, Auburn won’t be alone when it comes to loading up on elite competition this fall.

The SEC has yet to announce what the individual 10-game schedules will look like for each league team for the coming season but they have made it clear that the league plans to keep division play active and will be sending the champion of each division to Atlanta to the 2020 SEC Championship Game on Dec. 19.

Also, the eight SEC games previously scheduled for each program in 2020 are expected to be maintained this fall. For Auburn, that means matchups against Ole Miss, Kentucky, Georgia, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Arkansas, LSU and Alabama are still on the schedule.

After learning of the SEC’s decision, Auburn speedster Anthony Schwartz offered up a reaction that most fans on The Plains can relate to:

Despite playing such a difficult schedule in 2019, Auburn still managed to go 9-3 during the regular season and advanced to the Outback Bowl. During his sophomore season with the Tigers, Schwartz registered 558 yards from scrimmage (440 receiving and 118 rushing) and scored three touchdowns.
