Here are the college football games canceled by SEC’s conference-only schedule

The SEC joined the Big Ten and the Pac-12 in moving to a conference-only football schedule for the 2020-21 college football season Thursday, according to a report from Sports Illustrated. 

The SEC will now play a 10-game conference schedule and moved its conference championship weekend to Dec. 19. That move contradicts the ACC’s scheduling model, which left room for a plus-one outside of 10 conference games. 

For the SEC, that means each team lost four nonconference games. That included some traditional ACC-SEC season-ending rivalries such as Kentucky-Louisville, Florida-Florida State, Clemson-South Carolina and Georgia-Georgia Tech. Those are staples of rivalry week.

Alabama’s opener at Jerry World against USC on Sept. 5 had already been wiped out, but the Crimson Tide will not have another nonconference opponent in that matchup. Big-ticket matchups with the Big 12, including Tennessee-Oklahoma and LSU-Texas, also were canceled. 

Here is a look at the nonconference schedule each SEC schools loses as a result of the conference-only model:
