Vanderbilt – Away
These three games have yet to be scheduled date-wise but, they will be played at some point in time. The Commodores haven’t been able to improve like they wished when they hired former Notre Dame defensive coordinator Clark Lea. Vanderbilt finished 2-10 this season going 0-8 in conference. Things for Vandy will only get tougher as two more tough opponents enter the SEC in Texas and Oklahoma.
Missouri – Home
Don’t look now but, Missouri may end up being one of the toughest games outside of playing the Georgia Bulldogs. Missouri finished 10-2 this season with its only losses coming to LSU and Georgia. Missouri should bring back it’s two of its three biggest playmakers in Quarterback Brady Cook and maybe the nation’s best wide receiver in Luther Burden III. Eli Drinkwitz has built an impressive program at Missouri and this season may be a building block for the future.
South Carolina – Home
This season was a major disappointment for Shane Beamer and the Gamecocks. After ending 2022 on a tear beating Clemson and Tennessee many expected big things for the Gamecocks in 2023. Instead, the Gamecocks finished the season 5-7 going 3-5 in the SEC, a step back from 2022’s 8-5 season. The Gamecock’s may have a change at quarterback as Spencer Rattler can leave Carolina for the NFL draft which may be the best for his draft stock.
