SEC Football 2012: Ranking the Schedules from Easiest to Toughest

While any SEC schedule can be perceived as a gauntlet after the league's six straight BCS championships, imbalance in schedule difficulty has increased as a result of the additions of Missouri and Texas A&M. Teams will now play just two inter-division games, a major benefit for the SEC East, which has surrendered conference supremacy after dominating the league for much of the '90s.

Georgia rode a schedule void of 13-1 LSU, 12-1 Alabama and 11-2 Arkansas last season to the SEC Championship Game. South Carolina, who played only one of the three giants, finished a game behind Georgia. Florida, Tennessee and Vanderbilt, who all played at least two of the West powers, all finished with non-winning records in the regular season.

With just 12 games, schedules are more important in college football than in any other major sport. Which SEC teams have the benefit of a manageable slate in 2012? Let's look at the schedules, from easiest to toughest.
