Mississippi State is No. 4, LSU No. 10, Vanderbilt No. 12, Alabama No. 15, Florida No. 18 and Auburn No. 19.
I can see how Mississippi State fans would argue that they’re the ones with the SEC’s toughest schedule. The Bulldogs have to play the last three national champions — Alabama, Florida and LSU — all on the road. Arkansas, Auburn and Georgia all come to Starkville, and Mississippi State also has to make a nonconference trip to Houston.
