SEC Football 2020 season openers announced

We know who’ll be playing in Week 1. Well, whether we have a season or not of course.

As expected, the SEC revealed the Week 1 openers for the upcoming 2020 football season on The Paul Finebaum Show on Monday. Those games are as followed:

Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Missouri Tigers
Georgia Bulldogs vs. Arkansas Razorbacks
Kentucky Wildcats vs. Auburn Tigers
Florida Gators vs. Ole Miss Rebels
Mississippi St. Bulldogs vs. LSU Tigers
Tennessee Volunteers vs. South Carolina Gamecocks
Vanderbilt Commodores vs. Texas A&M Aggies

The most fascinating thing about this series of matchups is probably the fact that we’re seeing four first-year head coaches — Eli Drinkwitz, Sam Pittman, Lane Kiffin and Mike Leach — face off against four well-established coaches and programs — Nick Saban, Kirby Smart, Dan Mullen and Ed Orgeron. In other words, best of luck to Mizzou, Arkansas, Ole Miss and State.

As far as enticing and intriguing matchups here? It’s hard to figure that. But, as we’ve seen in the past, college football has a tendency to surprise you.

Now, whether these games actually come to fruition or not, and whether or not this is a fruitless endeavor? That, my friends, is yet to be seen.
