The ACC is considering allowing their teams to play each other for OOC games. Could this be an option for the SEC so we could play teams from the other division more?

actually this ain't a bad idea,IMO.it would allow teams to play the folks they rarely get to play and would be more interesting than some of these podunk teams we play.

The other question is would SEC schools be willing to do this. Most probably feel that the conference schedule is tough enough as it is and probably would be reluctant to add another SEC team to the schedule.

Ole Miss and Alabama used to do it all the time. Of course I was just a kid back then and y'all weren't a gleam in yo dad's eye yet.

I don't think it should be mandatory,but there could be some good matchups if some old rivals want to play.

so what happens if you win one of these games listed as an OOC, but lose one listed as a conference game?  you could get royally screwed out of the title game!  I don't think any team would agree to this!
