Hi this doesn’t deal with the story but something I have wondered for multiple years as a frequent viewer to your site

Do you go through all of the college football teams on your own to update the schedules throughout the season on your own or does someone help you with that

I run the website myself and post most of the articles and handle the game info. We have three contributing writers and also outsource most of the coding/development.

Wow Georgia/Tennessee and Kentucky/South Carolina on November 13.
Usually those are matchups in early October.

Georgia/Tennessee was moved to November before last year… It basically swapped spots with Auburn on the UGA schedule.
