SEC East hopeful Tennessee needed overtime and an insane amount of luck and bad coaching from Appalachian State to pull off a nailbiter at home to the Sun Belt juggernauts.Georgia squeaked by Nichols State and needed some late heroics to knock off Missouri, a SEC East team that got mollywalloped by West Virginia.Furthermore, mid tier SEC teams were scheduling creampuff matchups out of conference with absolutely NO out of conference tests, in an effort to create the fabricated “gauntlet” of SEC teams who always won.(For a reference, look at every Ole Miss and Miss State out of conference slate preceding this season.)

And once again they were preseason overhyped by the Worldwide Leader in SEC Ball-Washing, ESPN. They always do boast the best collective high school signing day recruit collection.
