SEC Scheduling News

South Carolina and UNC announced a 2 game series today. The Gamecocks will travel to Chapel Hill, N.C. to face the Tar Heels on Oct. 13, 2007. The return date at Williams-Brice Stadium is set for Sept. 18, 2010. This isn't the neutral site series that Spurrier wanted. But it's solid.

Additionally, Alabama is apparently serious in talking with Georgia Tech about a series. Bama already has a 2 game deal with Duke on the books (1 in Tuscaloosa and one in a Neutral Site), and a one game deal with FSU in the works.

Stewart Mandel if has a good article on intersectional matchups (HT). The topic is obviously hot with the Ohio State vs. Texas slobberknocker this weekend
