The Eye On College Football Podcast continues the 2013 preview series with the mighty SEC. Jerry Hinnen, our SEC-friendly colleague and newest Birmingham, Ala. resident, joins the show to discuss the season ahead in the Southeastern Conference.

Seemingly every school in the SEC enters 2013 with raised expectations from the year before. Unfortunately, with Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M still looking strong in the West and Georgia, Florida and South Carolina expected to finish atop the East Division standings, there are not a lot of easy wins to go around for the rest of the league. Tune in as Jerry sets realistic expectations for Butch Jones at Tennessee, Gus Malzahn at Auburn, Bret Bielema at Arkansas, as well as Kentucky's Mark Stoops.

Jerry wraps the show by ranking the Top 5 SEC games of opening weekend by watchability. Get your calendars out, and note the kick times for all of these can't miss games on Thursday and Saturday.

If the SEC is not your thing, we've got your fix covered with the ACC and Big Ten. You can download them for free from the iTunes Store. The Pac-12 and Big 12 shows will go up this week, along with the Expert Picks Podcast -- look for this on Thursday.
