Poll: SEC's don't miss game in 2011
By Chris Low
Just about every week in the SEC, there's a so-called "don't miss" game.
Some are bigger than others, and some mean more. But the beauty of this league is that every week matters.
As former Florida coach Urban Meyer used to say, there's a playoff every week in the SEC.
So as we point toward the 2011 season, which games warrant being on the "don't miss" checklist?
For starters, there are several nonconference games that should be dandies, and it starts the first week of the season with LSU taking on Oregon in Arlington, Texas and Georgia facing Boise State in Atlanta. The second week of the season, Alabama travels to Penn State.
But inside the league is where memories are made, and we won't have to wait long to get a beat on the Eastern Division race. South Carolina pays a visit to Georgia the second week of the season. That same weekend, we also find out a lot about Auburn post-Cam Newton and post-Nick Fairley when the Tigers take on Mississippi State in Jordan-Hare Stadium.
From there, it's on and doesn't let up until the SEC champion is crowned on Dec. 3 in Atlanta.
We're depending on you to tell us what game next season is the one none of us want to miss. Go to our poll and vote, and we'll take a closer look at the one you selected next week.
