I must admit going from the conference-only schedule of 2020 to the usual nine SEC games and three non-conference opponents is a bit of a letdown.
The good news is that the greatest environment in all of sports, Saturday nights in Death Valley, will be back to normal and Tiger Stadium will be at 100 percent capacity to welcome in the Central Michigan Chippewas who are led by a familiar face.
Central Michigan Chippewas
2020: 3-3 (3-3 MAC)
2021 S&P+ Projection: 82nd
2021 Recruiting Class: 87th

That’s right folks, Jim McElwain is coming back to Baton Rouge.
