Fall is officially here, which means we can enjoy the changing of the leaves, a cool morning breeze, and pundits debating Alabama’s invincibility this season.
As we prepare for cooler weather and hotter takes, let’s check-in around the best league in the country.
Here’s what’s happening around the SEC:
- The SEC released the 2022 schedules for all 14 schools. A list of these schedules can be found here.
- Speaking of schedules, Tennessee is paying an additional $100,000 to NOT play Army next season. The original contract saw Army being paid $1.4 million to come to Neyland Stadium, but the Tennessee administration is paying a $500,000 buyout to Army and subsequently paying Akron, one of the worst FBS teams, $1 million to now come to Knoxville. Things are just fine for the Volunteers.
- Several betting outlets, including BetMGM, have installed Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral as the favorite to win the 2021 Heisman. Corral recently torched Tulane to the tune of seven touchdowns, and he has a chance to create his “Heisman moment”, a la Johnny Manziel, in two weeks when the Rebels travel to Tuscaloosa to take on the Crimson Tide.
- Vanderbilt starting running back Re’Mahn Davis is out for the season. We wish Davis a complete recovery, and the Commodores will likely roll with Rocko Griffin as the featured back when the Dawgs come to West End this weekend.
- After losing to Georgia 40-13, South Carolina head coach Shane Beamer has announced that quarterback Luke Doty will be getting his first start of the season when the Gamecocks play Kentucky this weekend. Grad transfer/former grad assistant Zeb Noland had started the previous three games while Doty came back from injury.
It’s revenge season in Athens this weekend. GO DAWGS!!!
