Much has been made about the strength of schedule for Alabama this year. Even with a weak schedule and no top 15 wins, they still managed to make the playoffs. There have also been forums questioning the need to play marquee match-ups out of conference. This prompted me to take a look at the SEC's out of conference schedule for next year. As you might have guessed, it is soft. Of the 14 teams in the SEC, only 6 have games scheduled for next year against teams currently ranked in the top 25. Have a look.
