On Thursday, the SEC came to a decision regarding the conference’s scheduling when Oklahoma and Texas become apart of the party. It came down to two options:
- A nine-game schedule with three permanent opponents
- An eight-game schedule with one permanent opponent
The schools voted, and the eight-game option with one permanent opponent won by a vast majority. However, it is important to note that this decision is only for 2024. It feels as if a nine-game SEC schedule could be in the near future. The financial details between ESPN, who will take over the broadcasting rights for the Southeastern Conference, and the schools just need to be ironed out.
On the latest episode of SportsTalkATL, we discuss what the schedules could look like in 2024 and if a nine-game schedule with three permanent opponents would have been better.
