Last Friday, the SEC decided on an eight-game conference schedule for 2024 with the addition of Texas and Oklahoma.

The SEC will also no longer have divisions.

The SEC was deciding on whether to do an eight-game conference schedule with one permanent rival or a nine-game conference schedule with three permanent rivals.
