Kentucky entered the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season with high expectations, but an SEC-only schedule underscored the gap that still exists between the Wildcats and the top tier in the East division.   Several key members of the 2020 team are back to lead Kentucky this fall, but Mark Stoops' program should look significantly different than in recent years. Stoops fired offensive...

Missouri Football: 2021 Tigers Season Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 6 days 17 hours ago
In Eliah Drinkwitz's first season as Missouri head coach, his Tigers beat LSU, knocked off Arkansas for the fifth straight time and finished 5–5 despite much lower projections and a brutal schedule. All this, plus Mizzou's best recruiting class in quite a while, provided obvious reasons for optimism.   The pessimist, however, could note that Mizzou's five losses came by...

By Steven Lassan, 1 week 1 day ago
The SEC claimed its fourth national championship of the CFB Playoff era last season, as Alabama capped a historic run through the conference with a convincing win over Ohio State in the title game. The Crimson Tide top the SEC predictions for 2021, as coach Nick Saban’s team is Athlon’s pick as the team to beat once again. However, Georgia isn’t far behind. The Bulldogs have...

Ole Miss Football: 2021 Rebels Season Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 week 1 day ago
Matt Corral lost the Ole Miss quarterback job as a redshirt freshman and needed all of preseason practice to reclaim it in 2020. Once he did, he didn't let go. A poor fit in the run-based offense of former Ole Miss offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez in 2019, Corral thrived in the first season of the new regime under Lane Kiffin and his OC Jeff Lebby. "I think I need another year to...

Alabama Football: 2021 Crimson Tide Season Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 week 4 days ago
It's been a decade since Alabama won back-to-back national championships. A great deal of the success of those 2011-12 teams could be attributed to continuity. If the Crimson Tide are to repeat their feat in 2021, they will not have that luxury. Alabama has new assistant coaches and new starters aplenty entering its 2021 season as Nick Saban searches for his seventh national championship in...

Georgia Football: 2021 Bulldogs Season Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 week 5 days ago
After the Bulldogs fell short of expectations the last three seasons, don't be surprised if Georgia football looks a little different in 2021. The Bulldogs have been really good since Kirby Smart arrived in Athens. They've been relevant, and they've been successful, but they haven't quite lived up to the preseason hype. In fact, one could argue that the program has been trending...

Texas A&M Football: 2021 Aggies Season Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 week 5 days ago
Once again, Texas A&M appears to be on the doorstep of joining college football's elite.   The investment in head coach Jimbo Fisher paid big dividends in 2020. The Aggies were 9–1, won the Orange Bowl and finished fourth in the final polls — their highest final ranking since winning the national championship in 1939. But A&M has been on the doorstep before, only...

By Steven Lassan, 1 week 6 days ago
Georgia’s hopes of winning the program’s first national championship since 1980 received a major boost on June 1, as coach Kirby Smart added two huge pickups in the transfer portal in Clemson cornerback Derion Kendrick and LSU tight end Arik Gilbert. The Bulldogs were already one of the top teams in the nation, but the addition of Gilbert and Kendrick certainly helps to close the gap...

Florida Football: 2021 Gators Season Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 2 weeks 18 hours ago
The 2020 Florida Gators beat Georgia, won the SEC East and challenged Alabama for the conference title. By those standards, head coach Dan Mullen has made significant progress.   But his vision of a championship future appears increasingly distant entering Year Four in Gainesville. A season-ending three-game skid, the departure of several offensive stars and a 2021 recruiting class ranked...
