SEC teams get a break in tough conference schedule

Even the Southeastern Conference has an occasional slow weekend.

Even the Southeastern Conference has an occasional slow weekend.

None of the five SEC teams in the national rankings play each other on Saturday, though several are hosting Football Championship Subdivision programs.

It's safe to say when coaches and players talk about the treacherous SEC schedule they weren't talking about hosting Furman, Georgia Southern, The Citadel or Samford.

Still, there always some intrigue in the SEC. Several teams have things they need to work on in advance of next week's slate, which is filled with rivalry games and BCS implications.

And not everyone is getting a breather.

No. 13 Georgia hosts Kentucky looking to clinch the Eastern Division title and a spot in the SEC championship game and Vanderbilt will try to become bowl eligible when it plays at Tennessee.
