The SEC flips the calendar to conference matchups a little earlier than other leagues this season, as three league contests dot the schedule for Week 2. LSU-Mississippi State, Kentucky-South Carolina and Georgia-Vanderbilt should be a good...

If contending the SEC requires a team to build depth, upstart Tennessee will soon learn where it stands. The Volunteers were a preseason top 25 team for the first time since 2008, largely on the talent of the first stringers. Josh Dobbs is as...
