We all know that Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and LSU will be the cream of the crop in the SEC. South Carolina will also going to be gunning for the SEC East title. But what other teams are in the running? With so much talent at the top, we often forget about the schools that will be clawing their way up when the opportunity presents itself.
Will it be the conference newcomers that have a shot at surprising people? Texas A&M has a tough road ahead of them as the SEC West is stacked, but Missouri could make some noise if it can get crucial division wins early.
On the flip side of things, perhaps it will be an old-school power putting things together to exceed expectations. Auburn and Florida are a pair of schools trying to claw their way back to prominence. Tennessee has some great pieces, but the Vols need some defense to go with their highlight-reel passing game.
