SEC football coaches differ on league scheduling

DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - With the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M, the Southeastern Conference is tweaking its football and basketball schedules. 

Football coaches are having a much tougher time deciding on what changes to make. 

They are debating whether to play an eight- or nine-game conference schedule and whether to maintain cross-division rivals like Alabama-Tennessee and Auburn-Georgia. 

The hoops coaches seem to agree on an 18-game league schedule that would keep all 14 teams together instead of moving back to divisions. Teams would play everyone at least once (13 games) and have one annual home-and-home series with a designated rival. Those rivalries are Kentucky-Florida, Tennessee-Vanderbilt, Georgia-South Carolina, Alabama-Auburn, Mississippi-Mississippi State, Arkansas-Missouri and LSU-Texas A&M.

The remaining four games each season would be filled by the other 12 teams on a rotating basis.

    This weekend will be very hot with no rain expected. Instead of needing to dodge showers for any outdoor activities, you will need to "try" to avoid the heat. Saturday will start out with very warm and muggy conditions. Temperatures will cool down to the upper 70s, but may feel more like the lower 80s. With lots of sunshine expected in the morning, temperatures will quickly warm up. Already by lunchtime, it may feel like the triple digits.
