Calling 2020's unprecedented college football season "unpredictable" is an understatement. (Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the SEC schedule is kicking off later than usual.) But there are three certain things in life: death, taxes…and the Southeastern Conference as the best conference in college football.

These six fall matchups could very well determine who makes it out of the SEC and advances to the College Football Playoff.

Watch the week's best game from the SEC on CBS or stream live on CBS All Access, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com, CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news service.

Sept. 26: Mississippi State at LSU

During these unprecedented times, the SEC has chosen to forgo non-conference matchups and forge ahead with a 10-game, conference-only season. First-year Mississippi State head coach Mike Leach debuts his Air Raid offense against the reigning national champs—in Death Valley. No pressure, Bulldogs! BTW, last year the LSU Tigers finished 15–0.

Watch Mississippi State at LSU, Sept. 26, at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS or stream live on CBS All Access, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com, CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news service.

Oct. 3: Texas A&M at Alabama

If you want to be the best, you've gotta beat the best. But Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher definitely has his work cut out for him, as the Aggies need to get by Bama (in Tuscaloosa, no less!) early in the season. Meanwhile, Nick Saban and Alabama have something to prove after their "off" year—if you could even call an 11–2 campaign a failure. But for the Crimson Tide faithful, anything less than a national title is a disappointment.

Watch Texas A&M at Alabama, Oct. 3, at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS or stream live on CBS All Access, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com, CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news service.

Oct. 17: Georgia at Alabama

The Georgia Bulldogs have had a stranglehold on the SEC East the last few seasons, so this prime-time clash of interdivisional titans could be a preview of the SEC Championship Game. After getting throttled by LSU in last year's championship 37–10, Kirby Smart's squad looks to start from scratch, offensively, with a new OC and QB.

Watch UGA at Alabama, Oct. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS or stream live on CBS All Access, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com, CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news service.

Oct. 31: LSU at Auburn

Which Tigers are the best of the West? This rivalry has gifted us with some exciting back-and-forth, four-quarter fights. And while LSU has won three in a row, Auburn lost by margins of only 3, 1, and 4 points. The winner heads into bye week with a leg up in the division; the loser likely fails to live up to preseason expectations.

Watch LSU at Auburn, Oct. 31, at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS or stream live on CBS All Access, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com, CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news service.

Nov. 7: Florida vs. Georgia

The East usually goes through Jacksonville and this year's clash between rivals Florida and Georgia could very well decide who represents the division in Atlanta. It's season 3 for Florida head coach Dan Mullen—and playoff-or-bust for the Gators.

Watch Florida-Georgia, Nov. 7, at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS or stream live on CBS All Access, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com, CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news service.

Nov. 14: Alabama at LSU

LSU finally ended its eight-game losing streak to Bama in 2019, en route to an undefeated championship season. This is perennially the game of the year—heck, in 2011, it was billed as the Game of the Century—so the anticipation for this potential Top 5 matchup will be off the charts.

Watch Alabama at LSU, Nov. 14, at 6 p.m. ET on CBS or stream live on CBS All Access, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com, CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news service.

CBS Sports boasts a rich tradition and history with golf as the network has broadcast the sport for more than 60 years, so narrowing the list down to a few memorable moments is no small feat. We'll give it a shot.

Here are just 10 of our favorites, including highlights from the Masters Tournament, the PGA Championship, and the PGA TOUR.

1975 Masters

The Masters, broadcast on CBS for the last 64 years, will be played, as always, in Augusta, GA, but for the first time will be staged in November, from Nov. 12-15. Some consider the 1975 tourney to be the greatest of all time, featuring the talented triumvirate of Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf, and Johnny Miller. A 40-foot birdie putt that Nicklaus rolled in at the 16th green proved to be the difference-maker, securing him a record fifth Masters championship.

1984 MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT

In a memorable final round on CBS at Muirfield Village Golf Club, Nicklaus—who not only designed but founded the Memorial Tournament—outdueled Andy Bean in a sudden-death playoff.

1986 Masters

Unknown longshot John Daly—a ninth alternate who only qualified after several others pulled out of the tournament—stunned the sports world with his first ever victory at the PGA Championship. His outgoing personality and his "grip it and rip it" style of play made him an instant fan favorite. This year's edition—airing on CBS Aug. 8 and 9—will be the first major of 2020.

1997 Masters

Rory McIlroy shot a final-round course record, which included six consecutive threes, to post a 10-under 62 that leapfrogged the likes of Phil Mickelson, Angel Cabrera, Dustin Johnson, Davis Love III and third-round leader Billy Mayfair. His Sunday tally included eight birdies and an eagle on the par-5 15th.

After a three-month long layoff due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the PGA TOUR and CBS Sports returned at the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. Undertaking one of the most complicated productions of all-time, CBS Sports used reduced on-site staff and multiple technical enhancements from trucks and sources all over the world to showcase the return to golf. The event culminated in a playoff between Collin Morikawa and eventual winner Daniel Berger.
