Southeastern Conference football has been the gold standard in college sports the last decade.
The SEC has won numerous national championships on the gridiron, including seven in a row from 2006-12. The SEC has also changed with the landscape of college football, including the addition of Texas A&M and Missouri.
The league is instituting a new change. This time it involves scheduling.
All 14 SEC schools will be required to schedule an opponent from the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten or Pac-12 on an annual basis starting in 2016.
"We're working to find schools beginning in 2016," Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin said.
