SEC fans ready for Georgia-Clemson

Our friends over in the SEC blog recently posted a poll asking readers which season opener for the 2013 season was the most attractive, and the Clemson-Georgia game was the runaway winner.

With more than 11,000 votes cast, the Aug. 31 matchup between the Bulldogs and Tigers in Death Valley received 51 percent of the vote -- ahead of both Virginia Tech-Alabama and South Carolina-North Carolina.

Clemson-Georgia gets our vote, too.

As far as nonconference games go in the ACC this year, there's no question this is the marquee matchup. We'll know immediately if Clemson is good enough to be a national title contender this fall if the Tigers can handle Georgia in their season opener.
