Posted On July 8, 2021
Washington (CNN) — The SEC’s top five teams will play each other for the first time this season in a home-and-home series in Washington.
The ACC, which has the most teams in the nation, will meet the Pac-12’s UCLA and Arizona at 7 p.m.
ET Saturday in Atlanta, and the SEC will host No. 3 Arizona State in Orlando.
The Pac-10, which is led by UCLA, will face No. 8 Stanford, which leads the Pac 12 in scoring and has scored a league-high 91.5 points per game.
The Pac-13, which features a handful of other teams that have played in the last three years, will host Stanford at 7:30 p.r.m., with the Pac 16 meeting No. 4 Oregon at 1:30 a.m.: The Pac 10 and SEC will meet again in Dallas on Sunday, and No. 2 Alabama will face off against No. 1 Georgia at 3 a.l.: The ACC will host Michigan State in Atlanta.
The ACC and Pac-15 will meet in Orlando on Sunday.
SEC commissioner Mike Slive said Saturday that the conference’s schedule would be a bit more flexible than usual for the ACC to handle the increased competition.
“I think it’s an opportunity for us to be able to accommodate that with the ACC schedule, to be open to different scheduling,” Slive told reporters.
“I don’t think we have to be in a rigid scheduling scheme, but we will have flexibility to adjust schedules to fit the schedule.”
Slive said the ACC would be “trying to give everybody an opportunity” to compete on the schedule.
“It’s the SEC that will be playing at the same level as everybody else,” Slives said.
“But it’s not a hard schedule to play.
There’s going to be opportunities to play other teams, but it’s going be an opportunity to compete.”
The SEC will play eight of its final nine games in the new SEC East conference, with Georgia, Florida, Texas A&M, LSU and Mississippi State among the others.
