Should Major College Football Teams Beef Up Their Schedules?
A few SEC schools faced lower-division programs last week, and some games were nail-biters. But should these matchups even happen?By Carter Woodiel | November 22, 2015
Saturday was supposed to be an easy week for SEC football, with much of the conference squaring off against smaller, overmatched schools. But there were a few unexpected nail-biters.
The SEC East champion Florida Gators beat the now 2-9 Florida Atlantic Owls in overtime. Georgia also needed an extra period to put away the Sun Belt's Georgia Southern. And South Carolina lost to The Citadel, the first time in five years a team outside college football's top division knocked off an SEC school.
Perhaps those teams should have heeded the words of Alabama head coach Nick Saban who said to reporters his squad needed to give Charleston Southern their full attention this week.
