8. Florida | Index -- 3.13: People like to knock the SEC's out-of-conference scheduling, but don't wag the finger at the Gators, who play arch-rival FSU, as always. This season, Florida also has to visit what should be an improved Miami squad. The Gators open against Toledo, which may be the MAC's best team. The other non-conference opponent is a good FCS team, Georgia Southern.
10. (tie) South Carolina | Index -- 2.88: The Jadeveon Clowney Show opens against a decent North Carolina team the week before it visits Georgia. South Carolina ends the month of September with its second non-conference game, a road trip to UCF, which won 10 games last season. Later in the season, the Gamecocks play FCS Coastal Carolina before finishing against a Clemson team led by star QB Tajh Boyd and primed for a Top 10 season after finishing 2012 with a bowl win over LSU.
