There are some games in the SEC that you’re not exactly chomping at the bit to see, either live or on this new network (is that the name of our network again?) or somewhere else….but there are a ton of them that you.

The game that we’re looking forward to seeing – above all – is Texas A&M’s trip to South Carolina for the first game of the season. Why? Because it’s the first game of the season and honey, we’re hooooooooome.

So here’s 10 OTHER games we can’t wait to see.

1) Auburn at Alabama (Nov 28)

Kick-Six becomes even more of a grudge match at this year’s Iron Bowl. This game could be a SEC West decider (again), and maybe one that’ll decide who’s going to the play-off, too. So not much riding on it, then…

2) Georgia at South Carolina (Sept 13)

South Carolina wins this one, and the Gamecocks have got a great chance of going all the way to Atlanta. And Steve Spurrier gets to carry on crowing.

3) South Carolina at Auburn (Oct 25) 

Huge test of how good South Carolina’s defense is……again. Especially against Gus Malzhan’s offense.

4) Alabama at LSU (Nov 8)

Because Death Valley’s going to be off-the-hook for this one…..which we hope will be played at night.

5) Auburn at Georgia (Nov 15)

Because Georgia won’t want a repeat of last year. Both sides could be going into this one unbeaten and needing to continue momentum. UGA might have a team that’s not in jail by then….

6) Florida vs Georgia (Nov 1)

Cocktail Party could also be a SEC East title showdown, with the winner favorite to go to Atlanta.

7) Mississippi State at Ole Miss (Nov 29)

The Egg Bowl didn’t let down in terms of drama. We can’t wait for the Dak vs Bo show. It’s going to be awesome. Especially if both sides are competitive in the West (unlikely, but we can always hope).

8) Vanderbilt at Kentucky (Sept 27th)

Kentucky’s SEC loss run will be up to 17, and this game presents a monster of a chance for Mark Stoops to get the monkey off his back against a weakened Vanderbilt team. It will be quite a test for new coach Derek Mason, too.

9) Ole Miss at LSU (Oct 25)

Ole Miss has played LSU tough (and gone 1-1) in the last 2 years, and Hugh Freeze’s high-octane offense will test LSU’s D once again. LSU fans will want revenge for last year’s stunning loss in Oxford.

10) South Carolina at Florida (Nov 15)

The script’s almost written. Steve Spurrier returning to The Swamp as SEC East favorite for an end-of-season showdown. If his team wins this game, they go to Atlanta. If they lose, Florida or Georgia goes to Atlanta. Suddenly, this game got big, people.
