For many, the college football season officially begins this weekend.
The Southeastern Conference will finally kick off after delaying its schedule because of the coronavirus pandemic, returning perhaps the strongest group of teams in the Power Five.

So far, so good, as no SEC teams have had to postpone their season openers - yet.
Here's what you need to know to get up to speed on this SEC season, beginning with new starters at the most important position: quarterback, along with other stories to watch this weekend.
