Welcome to the SEC, now here’s who you’ll have to play right off the bat.

Bryan Harsin at Auburn, Shane Beamer at South Carolina, Josh Heupel at Tennessee and Clark Lea at Vanderbilt and will have no time to get acclimated as they experience their first season as head coaches in the toughest conference in America.

In terms of non-conference play, Auburn may have the toughest slate with a game at Penn State, and then Georgia State the next week. But Vanderbilt won’t have easy sledding with a road game with Colorado State before Stanford out of the Pac-12 comes to the West End.

After a year off, South Carolina will resume its Palmetto State showdown with Clemson, but also must tangle with East Carolina early in the season, which could be an early barometer of how the new Beamer regime looks.
