WATCH: SEC confirms conference-only schedule, Nick Saban gets his wish for college football

Football is happening this fall in the world of collegiate athletics.

For the Southeastern Conference, all 14 athletic directors, presidents and Commissioner Greg Sankey came to an agreement on a 10-game, conference-only schedule on Thursday.

The University of Alabama football program will start its season versus Georgia on Saturday, Sept. 26 at Bryant-Denny Stadium, while the Crimson Tide will add Florida and Vanderbilt to its slate.

Nick Saban has always wanted more SEC games, and now the Alabama head coach gets his wish.

No easy matchups are on the schedule, which means the Tide must earn its way into the College Football Playoff.

If anyone could navigate this gauntlet, it would be Saban and Alabama as it pushes to win a national championship.

On Friday, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine broke down the 10-game schedule and discussed the good, bad, and the ugly that could come from it for Alabama via In My Own Words.
