Those of you who are regular readers of the site know that we usually use this space to break down the games taking place around the SEC. With the release of the 2013 SEC football schedule, now is a great time to take a spin around the league and see who has the toughest road ahead next season. Yes, we should probably let the 2012 season end first, but I’m impatient. Join me, won’t you?
Note: Ratings subject to change as non-conference schedules are finalized. The SEC Championship takes place 12/7/13.

It seems unthinkable that a game involving two top-ten teams would be eclipsed by another game, but such is life in the SEC. We focused – rightly so – on the South Carolina-LSU game last week, and despite my referring to Texas A&M-Louisiana Tech as a “must-see affair”, no one could have predicted that outcome. We will try to recap 116 total points in as briefly as we can later, but for now, let’s take a look at what to watch this week around the SEC.
#9 South Carolina (6-1, 4-1) at #3 Florida (6-0, 5-0), 3:30 pm ET, CBS
Program guide: It seems as though South Carolina has become a fixture in this segment, but a look at their schedule provides all the necessary explanation. The Gamecocks travel to Gainesville for the final game of a murderous three-game run, and the hope for Steve Spurrier is that the offense also makes the trip.

A week after two top-ten battles, Vanderbilt’s first SEC victory, and losses by the two divisional cellar dwellers to push them both to 0-3 in the conference, the SEC (except for Georgia) returns to play this weekend with some great — and not so great — match-ups.
Let’s take a spin through those match-ups and tell you what to put on your calendar for Week 7 of the SEC.
#3 South Carolina (6-0, 4-0) at #9 LSU (5-1, 1-1), 8:00 pm ET, ESPN

Alabama will welcome Georgia State to Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on Oct. 5, 2013. The Crimson Tide will pay the Panthers a $700,000 guarantee.
