KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — That huge document below is the SEC’s master football schedule grid for the 2013 season. Here’s a direct link to the .pdf.

Tennessee‘s two off-weeks provide — Florida-LSU on Oct. 12, and Florida-South Carolina, Alabama-Mississippi State or Georgia-Auburn on Nov. 16.

There are several big games on the Aug. 31 opening weekend that are likely to overshadow the Vols’ opener against Austin Peay. In fact, it’s hard to see where many weekends in which the Vols will have the spotlight, even if things go better than expected this year.

The SEC does have a relatively weak slate on Oct. 26, when UT travels to Alabama. Of course, the Vols will have already faced Oregon, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina by that point.
