SEC announces new 2020 preseason football practice schedule
The SEC has announced a new 2020 preseason football practice schedule with the first allowable practice now set for Monday, August 17.
Below are details on the new practice schedule from the SEC release:
In the revised SEC preseason football calendar, from August 7-16 schools are permitted to conduct up to 14 hours per week of strength and conditioning, meetings and walkthroughs.
Beginning August 17 and until the opening game, schools are allowed 25 practices with a limit of 20 hours per week of practice time. A five-day acclimatization period is required, with two days in helmets only, two days in shells and the fifth day in full pads.
Schools will be required to provide student-athletes a minimum of two days off each week until the week before the first game of the season.
Last week, the SEC announced that teams will play a 10-game, conference-only schedule for the 2020 season. Georgia’s non-conference contests against Virginia (in Atlanta, Ga.), ETSU, ULM, and Georgia Tech were all canceled.
Georgia’s SEC home games in 2020 will include Vanderbilt, Auburn, Tennessee, and Florida (in Jacksonville, Fla.). Road SEC opponents include Alabama, Missouri, South Carolina, and Kentucky.
The Bulldogs will gain an additional SEC opponent at home and on the road from a pool consisting of Arkansas, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M.
Georgia’s two new SEC opponents as well as the revised 2020 football schedule are expected to be announced in the coming days.
