Bits' SEC Blog What to expect from the SEC this season: 1. The Auburn Tigers will challenge for the SEC West title. The date to circle on your calendars in the SEC is October 15th. Auburn will travel to Death Valley to take on LSU in the annual Tiger Bowl. Coach Lambeau will lead in his new team in a rematch of the BCS championship game with coach Maximus. LSU fans are salivating over this game. The key note about this game is that CBS has picked it up in the 8:00 PM slot following the Florida / Georgia game at 3:30. That does not bode well for Auburn. 2. Alabama will lose 3 SEC games. The days of Nick Saban's Tide rolling through the SEC are over. With games against Auburn, LSU, and Florida in the Swamp, the Tide are looking at a trip to the Capital One Bowl at best. 3. No SEC team will finish the season undefeated. The schedule is just too tough. Florida, Auburn, and LSU all play one another this year. In addition, each team has at least one really rough out of conference game. Florida of course will host defending ACC champion Florida State, LSU will travel to Virginia Tech, and Aubrun opens at home with #1 Ohio State.
