South Florida is No. 19 under first-year head coach Charlie Strong. Other SEC teams ranked in the Top 25 include Auburn (12th), LSU (13th), Florida (17th), and Tennessee (25th).

The Tigers will face three of those teams this season - LSU on October 14, Georgia on November 11 and Alabama on November 25 - as well as defending national champion and No. 5-ranked Clemson at Memorial Stadium on November 9.
