We’re less than 48 hours from the first SEC football game of the 2020 season, a season like no other we’ve ever seen before.
Right out of the gates it is Mississippi State making its way down to Death Valley to take on number six LSU without as much as a single non-conference game to get the ball rolling.
The Bulldogs will be LSU’s first opponent since winning last year’s national championship, having lost four out of their last five to the Tigers.
From there, it’s nine more SEC games over the next 10 weeks after adding Vanderbilt and Georgia to the schedule. Head Coach Mike Leach said, “We’ve really got to hone it down and try to feature what we’re best at and put our personnel in the best position we can, but I was inclined that way anyway but I guess there’s less margin of error on it. But the toughest schedule that’s ever been played in history of college football is going to be one of the teams in the SEC this year. 10/10 straight SEC teams, no non-conference, that’s going to be the toughest schedule that’s ever been played in college football.”
Mississippi State and LSU will kick off the 2020 season at 2:30 p.m. Saturday from Baton Rouge.
