When each team will take the podium


Next week, each member of the SEC will head to the College Football Hall of Fame and the Omni Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta for the 2022 SEC media days. This is just the second time since 1985 that the event has not been held in the state of Alabama.

There’s bound to be plenty of fireworks next week in Atlanta when coaches and players take to the podium. There will also be a couple of new faces that will be making their first SEC media days appearance in Florida‘s Billy Napier and LSU‘s Brian Kelly.

Next week should provide plenty of content for lovers of SEC football and it is a sign that the 2022 college football season is just around the corner.

Let’s take a look at when each school will make its media day appearance in alphabetical order.
