The SEC is the best conference in college football, and the approach taken today is a ranking of every team's conference schedule.
It may be the offseason, but in SEC country, there is never an offseason.
There is one particular reason why this ranking is important. This is a ranking of the difficulty teams will have in trying to get to Atlanta.
The eight games in the SEC will determine who plays in Atlanta for the SEC Championship. The four non-conference games will help in determining who plays in the National Championship.
This list was difficult to compile. Every one of these schedules is extremely difficult and every team has their work cut out for them, but some stand in better positions than others.
Let me reiterate that this is a look at their conference schedule, games against non-conference opponents carried no weight in this article.
