After months of anticipation, the SEC released its 2014 football schedule on Wednesday. The 2014 docket features the same format as in years past, with each team playing the other six teams in its division, one permanent cross-division opponent and one rotating opponent from the other division.
South Carolina and Texas A&M will begin their new permanent cross-division rivalry on the first Thursday of the season with Columbia, and Alabama's cross-division slate tightens up a bit with a visit from the Florida Gators on Sept. 20.
Talk about kicking things off with a bang in the opening month of the season.
Florida draws Alabama and LSU out of the west, which is no cake walk. But the schedule is light leading up to the trip to Tuscaloosa. The Gators also host LSU and South Carolina, but all three of those games are spread out a bit.
Who are the winners and losers of the 2014 SEC schedule? Our picks are in this slideshow.
