    The SEC made the best decision it could in limiting the 2020 season (if it happens) to a conference-only schedule that starts September 26th and ends December 19th (for the SEC championship game). The SEC will plan for a nominal 10-game schedule to be played over 11 weeks, presumably with contingency plans to drop one or two games due to COVID-19 outbreaks. The late start was built in to account for a projected spike in COVID-19 cases over Labor Day weekend. As it stands now, Florida will have home games hosting Kentucky, South Carolina, LSU, Missouri, and an SEC West team. Florida will travel to Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, an SEC West team, and a "neutral" location against Georgia. For now the prevailing theory is that the World's Largest Outdoor COVID-19 Party will still take place in Jacksonville under NFL-recommended restrictions on the venue. With that, here is the possible schedule:

    1. 9/26. Same. Florida plays Tennessee in Knoxville.
    2. 10/3. Same. Florida plays South Carolina in Gainesville.
    3. 10/10. Same. Florida plays LSU in Gainesville.
    4. 10/17. Same. Florida plays Ole Miss in Oxford.
    5. 10/24. TBD. Bye, host Arkansas in Gainesville, or play Auburn at the Plains
    6. 10/31. Same. Florida plays Georgia at Jacksonville (Georgia is the home team).
    7. 11/7. Same. Florida plays Vanderbilt in Nashville.
    8. 11/14. Same. Florida plays Missouri in Gainesville.
    9. 11/21. TBD. Bye, play at Arkansas, or play rescheduled COVID game
    10. 11/28. TBD. Bye, host Kentucky, or play rescheduled COVID game [preferably host Kentucky]
    11. 12/5. TBD. Bye, or play Kentucky, Arkansas, Bama, or Auburn; or play rescheduled COVID game
    12. 12/12. TBD. Bye, or play Kentucky, Arkansas, Bama, or Auburn; or play rescheduled COVID game
    13. 12/19. SEC Championship. Screenshot from 2020-08-06 10-04-34.png

    I would like to see them maybe delay the season until October 3rd and have the SEC in the new year (though I doubt the NCAA will do that).

    I am just going off what the SEC says. The SEC commissioner and the member ADs agreed to September 26th, so that is what I went with. Everything else is speculation. Maybe the season will get cancelled midway, or maybe the season will continue on through a few outbreaks. Nobody knows.

    Also, the NCAA does not have that kind of authority to change the football season. It will be interesting to see how the NCAA will use what little authority it has to handle the COVID-19 situation.
