Well, it’s finally here!

SEC football starts Saturday, and in a year when football looked bleak at times, the SEC — led by Greg Sankey — never wavered. The conference took the slow and steady approach, and it has paid off.

SEC football won’t look the same with no tailgating and 20-to-25 percent capacity stadiums; however, it makes its glorious return in our favorite venues in the Southeast.

While Week 1 isn’t a can’t-miss incredible slate, there are some sneaky good games. Kentucky at Auburn comes to mind, as many think the Cats can pull the upset. The SEC Network’s crew of Tom Hart, Jordan Rodgers and Cole Cubelic will have the call from Jordan-Hare Stadium at 12:00 p.m. ET.

Mississippi State at LSU was selected to be the CBS Sports 3:30 p.m. ET game, and Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson, along with Jamie Erdahl, will have the call from Baton Rouge.
