The Texas A&M football team will face one of the toughest schedules in the country in 2012. In addition to its conference schedule, it is facing a team in non-conference play who will be a big test.
Most of the teams in the Southeastern Conference play weaker non-conference schedules to save their team for the gauntlet that is the SEC conference slate. Even with a non-conference schedule that is set up for easy wins, there are many landmines on the schedules of every SEC team.
The elite teams in the SEC are not immune to upset losses in 2012. Every team has weaknesses. and it is rare to find a team capable of giving 100 percent on every Saturday.
This is a look at every SEC team and the opponent most likely to upset them during the 2012 season.
To qualify as an upset loss, the team who wins the game must enter the game as an underdog. Vanderbilt beating Tennessee may be an upset in some fans' minds, but if Tyler Bray is out for Tennessee again, then the line will probably favor Vanderbilt, so it will not be considered an upset.
