The SEC released the 2021 schedule and there are some big matchups to look forward to. College football didn’t get the job done in 2020.
The Big-10 got robbed of a real season last year. But now, fans will see inter-conference games which will hopefully give any team other than Alabama a shot:

SEC Schedule: Week 1 Big Games
Clemson vs. Georgia.
Clemson is finally done with the Trevor Lawrence era and I couldn’t be happier. DJ Uiagalelei really stood out to me in his first career game this year against Notre Dame. They won by a small margin, but the kid was forced to start in a serious matchup for his 1st college game.
Georgia is still considered an elite team but in recent years they haven’t had the offensive firepower to compete with the best offensives. Clemson should be favorites but not by more than a touchdown.
Alabama vs. Miami
This game will be one of the most anticipated games of the year. Going into the season, Miami’s team expectations can always vary but this year it will depend on who the new QB is. D’Eriq King was their starter last year and he exceeded expectations but still couldn’t lead the team to more success.
Their backup Tate Martell who opted out of the 2020 season, announced that he would be entering the transfer portal and many believe that he’s a lock to go to UNLV.
Sleeper: Texas A&M
The Aggies fell just short of the playoff last year due to their blowout loss vs. Alabama. Jimbo Fisher and crew are looking for a revenge tour that they are more than capable of completing.
A&M faces Alabama on October 9th in Lubbock. The Aggies will get a warm-up game at home the week before vs. Mississippi State who looks like they won’t be anything other than mediocre.
Other Big Games on SEC Schedule
Alabama vs. Texas A&M:
As mentioned above, this will be the Aggies revenge tour and this game will feature a team in this year’s college football playoff.
Alabama vs. Auburn:
Assuming they don’t close until the last week, Bama will have to go on the road to Auburn which has got to be one of Nick Saban’s biggest nightmares:
The Kick-Six game will always be monumental in College Football. Auburn isn’t supposed to be anything special this year, but I think it’s crazy to rule out Auburn until you see double zeros on the clock.
