Here’s a ranking of the toughest two-game stretches this season. The games have to be in successive weeks and can’t include a bye week in between or an extra day or two to prepare:
1. Ole Miss: The Rebels have to go on the road in back-to-back weeks to face Alabama on Oct. 16 and Arkansas on Oct. 23.
2. Mississippi State: The Bulldogs travel to Alabama on Nov. 13 and return home the following week to face Arkansas on Nov. 20.
