Where does LSU's 2014 football schedule rank in the SEC?

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

With LSU's baseball team taking the diamond last week and the basketball team trying to make one of the post-season tournaments, I have to ask, is it too early to start talking LSU and SEC football?

Nah, football is a year round sport, right?

Saturday Down South has taken a peak at each SEC team's strength of schedule and while you might be surprised at who has the toughest schedule, the team with the weakest schedule should be no surprise at all.

Arkansas has the toughest schedule according SDS, facing teams with a winning percentage of 0.656. The Razorbacks schedule includes Auburn, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss and Missouri. Ouch!

LSU has the 11th most difficult schedule. The Tigers will play opponents with a winning percentage of 0.536. 2014 opponents include Wisconsin, Auburn, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Alabama and Texas A&M.

Alabama once again will start the season with the weakest schedule in the conference. The Tide will face opponents with a 0.473 winning percentage. Alabama's schedule includes West Virginia, Florida, Texas A&M, LSU and Auburn.
