There’s really no such thing as an “easy” SEC contest, but which game is the toughest conference test on each SEC team’s schedule? Take a look at our nominations:

Alabama: Nov. 7 vs. LSU. Take a look at the Crimson Tide’s October schedule leading into this annual rivalry game with the Bayou Bengals, and it’ll make more sense why this is its toughest game of 2015. Alabama will play at Georgia, then host Arkansas, then play at Texas A&M, then return home to face an upstart Tennessee squad in four consecutive weeks prior to the LSU game. If the Tigers can find any solution at quarterback, the Tide won’t be safe even at home after that murder’s row of a schedule.

Arkansas: Oct. 10 at Alabama. The Hogs fell to Alabama by one point in a heartbreaker at home last season. Now they must travel to Tuscaloosa to face the SEC West’s measuring stick, and must do so after hosting Texas A&M and traveling to Knoxville in consecutive weeks. Back to back road games against Tennessee and Alabama are never easy, especially when Alabama comes second, waiting to feast on a possibly weary Arkansas squad.

Auburn: Oct. 31 vs. Ole Miss. Although at home, Auburn has to feel at least a little vulnerable about the prospect of facing the Ole Miss landshark defense deep into the season. The Rebels had some offseason turnover on defense, but still present one of the top units in the conference. Auburn had no trouble putting up points on the Rebels last year, but those Rebels will have revenge on their mind, especially considering the division title implications this game is almost certain to have.

Florida: Oct. 17 at LSU. Take a look at yet another murder’s row leading up to a game against the threatening Tigers. Florida will face Tennessee and Ole Miss at home in consecutive weeks, then travel to two-time East champ Missouri before heading on to another road game in Baton Rouge. LSU and Florida present similar quarterback woes, and a thin Florida roster may not have the juice to keep up with one of the West’s traditional contenders.

Georgia: Oct. 10 at Tennessee. Georgia will host Alabama the week before traveling to Knoxville for a potential SEC East title game in early October, and if the Dawgs aren’t on-point for both games, fans in Athens will not be pleased. The Bulldogs have the talent in the front seven to contain Joshua Dobbs and the Vols offense, but a game with those implications one week after facing Alabama is no small task.

Kentucky: Oct. 15 vs. Auburn. Mark Stoops’ defense prowess will be tested like never before in his brief tenure as Kentucky’s head coach when his Wildcats taken on Gus Malzahn and the high-powered Auburn Tigers. Worse yet for Kentucky, this showdown takes place on a Thursday, and although UK will enjoy an open date before this game, the rhythm of the week will be off with an unordinary Thursday night kickoff. If Auburn can pounce early, there’s almost no way UK can recover, even at home.

LSU: Nov. 21 at Ole Miss. LSU will travel to Alabama for one of its most physical games of the year, then will host another physically imposing team in Arkansas the next week, only to then hit the road again to face Ole Miss and the nation’s top scoring defense from a year ago. Without a quarterback, Ole Miss has the tools to contain Leonard Fournette, and the talent at the skill positions on offense to pick on an LSU defense without John Chavis. The Rebels could serve as the knockout blow to the Tigers season.

Mississippi State: Oct. 3 at Texas A&M. Mississippi State gave up more long completions than any defense in the SEC last season, and it’ll have to face its toughest test in the Aggies’ high-powered spread offense one week after traveling to Auburn to try and contain Malzahn’s explosive offense. The Bulldogs defense should be worn down in a second straight road game, and A&M should be able to take advantage offensively.

Missouri: Nov. 28 at Arkansas. This game was a physical slugfest to conclude last season, and it’s likely to produce a similar game this time around in Fayetteville. The Tigers will host Mississippi State, BYU and Tennessee in the three weeks leading up to this game, and upon leaving home to face the Razorbacks the Tigers may run out of gas. Mizzou defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski will be truly put to the test in this one, because if the Tigers can’t replace Shane Ray and Markus Golden, it will be tough sledding against the Hogs’ talented backfield.

Ole Miss: Sept. 19 at Alabama. Alabama will have revenge on its mind when it gets a shot at Ole Miss in each team’s SEC opener this year, and this time around it’ll also have home-field advantage on its side. Defeating a Nick Saban Alabama team in consecutive seasons is nearly impossible, and the Rebels won’t have any true tests before this game to help them prepare for what’s to take place. If history has taught us anything, it’s that Alabama may play its best game of the season in this showdown in September.

South Carolina: Oct. 31 at Texas A&M. The Gamecocks’ defense was absolutely shredded by the Aggies in last year’s season opener in Columbia, foreshadowing a season-long epidemic for the Gamecocks. This year the annual cross-division rivalry will take place in College Station, and the Aggies will likely have advantages in terms of quarterback play and defensive leadership, cementing the Gamecocks fate as underdogs entering this game.

Tennessee: Oct. 24 at Alabama. The Crimson Tide are a measuring stick for any up-and-coming team wondering if it has arrived among the SEC’s elite. And just as Gus Malzahn’s Auburn Tigers and Johnny Manziel’s Texas A&M Aggies passed the Alabama test in recent seasons, Butch Jones’ young but talented Vols squad will try and do the same on the road on the Third Saturday in October (although this year it will be the fourth Saturday). If Joshua Dobbs is truly All-SEC material, he’ll have to find a way to win this game or at least come close.

Texas A&M: Oct. 24 at Ole Miss. The Aggies’ spread offense and the Rebels’ Landshark defense make for quite an intriguing matchup, especially in a game saved for the final third of the season. The Rebels showed at home against Alabama last year that they’re as tough at home as any SEC team going, and the Aggies may struggle to maintain pace and rhythm on offense in a hostile road environment against a defense with that much talent.

Vanderbilt: Sept. 12 vs. Georgia. After a winnable season opener against Western Kentucky, the Commodores will face the harsh reality of the SEC early in the year with a home game against Georgia. The Bulldogs’ fearsome front seven is a lock to give Vanderbilt’s offense fits, and it’s hard to imagine Ralph Webb developing any kind of rhythm in the run game. Derek Mason’s possibly improved defense could have a say in this game against UGA’s new quarterback (whoever it may be), but that won’t be enough, even in Nashville.
