SEC Media Days, which offered the league’s football fans a taste of the football season to come, are in the books.
And unfortunately, we’re still a few weeks away from the opening of preseason camp. So fans are left to countdown the days until their favorite teams will again return to the gridiron.
Friday marked a significant milestone in that countdown. There are exactly 50 days until the opening Saturday for college football.
There will be 10 SEC teams playing on Saturday, Sept. 3. At least three of them took to Twitter to celebrate the milestone on Friday:
— Auburn Tigers (@AuburnTigers) July 15, 2016
— Georgia Football (@FootballUGA) July 15, 2016
— UK Stoops Troops (@UKStoopsTroops) July 15, 2016
Ole Miss starts its season with a neutral-site game against Florida State on Monday, Sept. 5, so the Rebels are a few days behind in the countdown to 50 days:

Meanwhile, South Carolina, which opens its season against Vanderbilt on Thursday, Sept. 1, was able to get a little bit of a head start in the 50-day celebration:

Whether its 48, 50 0r 52 days until kickoff, one thing is for sure– SEC fans are ready.
