BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (UPI) — The Southeastern Conference unveiled its entire 2020 football schedule Monday as it continues to move forward with its fall sports season amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A matchup between Alabama and Georgia on Oct. 17 at Bryant-Denny Stadium highlights the SEC’s upcoming slate. It’s the first regular-season game between the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs in Tuscaloosa, Ala., since Nick Saban’s first season as Alabama’s head coach in 2007.
Other highlights include Alabama and defending national champion LSU meeting Nov. 14 in Baton Rouge, La., while Tennessee and Florida — who traditionally meet in September — won’t play until the final week of the season on Dec. 5. LSU hasn’t defeated the Crimson Tide at Tiger Stadium since 2010.
The SEC announced its opening-week schedule earlier Monday and will play a 10-game, conference-only slate this fall. The SEC, ACC and Big 12 currently plan to move forward with its fall seasons, while the Big Ten and Pac-12 have postponed fall sports.
Below is a team-by-team breakdown of the 2020 SEC schedule:
