At Texas A&M so early will be a great game and great atmosphere.
Weird not seeing Arkansas until October. I'm so used to destroying their dreams early in the season
Great to see two bye weeks and both are before what should be our toughest games.
Colorado State is an interesting out of conference opponent.

"We always talk about playing 60 minutes but this is a 60-10 game: the 60 minutes of the game and the 10 minutes in the locker room after the game that you remember for the rest of your life."

Yeah I didn't understand the love for him preseason and for there to be any now is awful. He needs to send Cam Newton a thank you note cause he is the only reason people like him. Although they forget the fact he is a much slower version of Cam with less accuracy and more turnovers.
I guess they are sticking with the two cross-divisional games. And still no Georgia regular season game. I am surprised that we are switching Missouri for Kentucky and not Georgia.
a week off before lsu is never a bad thing
damn UT game is the FOURTH week of october again?
Looks about as easy as an SEC schedule can...

We better go undefeated because that's not a great schedule. CSU isn't a terrible team, but UTC and GSU are absolutely awful. VT is 6-6 and lost to Pitt this year. They won't be ranked in the preseason, so that game has turned out to be a stinker too. When we scheduled it we figured they'd be decent.
Byes before TAMU and LSU work out nicely.
I like the schedule. A week off before the circled game against the Ags, and a week off before LSU.
Potential trap game against Tennessee, IF Bielema is able to institute his physical style of play that quickly in an Arkansas squad originally recruited for an entirely different philosophy. If so, we'd have a chance of being beat up at the end of a seven-game stretch.
If AJ returns, the main question will be replacing three all-star OL. If he doesn't, it's probably not going to be a championship year anyway.

By the way, TAMU opens with Rice and Sam Houston State before playing Bama.
I thought it was cute how they have the SECCG on their schedule for next year. Bama does not.
