The SEC released the 2013 conference schedules for all 14 teams Thursday.

There are a few things that stand out with next year's SEC slate. For one, I'm sure fans outside of Athens, Ga., will be slow clapping at the fact Georgia will get back to playing one of the top teams in the SEC West, as the Bulldogs will host LSU on Sept. 28. That's great for TV, but it's part of a tough conference stretch for the Tigers, who play at Georgia and at Mississippi State in consecutive weeks before hosting Florida and then going to Ole Miss. LSU then plays at Alabama on Nov. 9 and will end the season at home against Texas A&M and Arkansas.

Florida's usual late-season games against South Carolina and Vanderbilt are back and will be played in mid-November. The Georgia-South Carolina game has also been moved back toward the beginning of the season (Sept. 7).

Alabama gets Ole Miss at home for the second straight year and will play Kentucky (Oct. 12) and Tennessee (Oct. 26) from the East. That means no Florida, Georgia or South Carolina for the second straight year for the Crimson Tide.

We also won't see those permanent rivalries that were discussed earlier this year. There's no Arkansas-Missouri or South Carolina-Texas A&M. Maybe one day.

Also, Vanderbilt was supposed to play Northwestern next season, but the Commodores canceled that series, meaning the 2013 and 2014 games between the two schools won't be played. Vanderbilt also canceled next year's opener against Ohio State. Instead, the Commodores will host Ole Miss to open the 2013 season and are also scheduled to host Austin Peay, UAB and Wake Forest. Vandy will play UMass on the road on Sept. 28.
