A shot of Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia last year as University of South Carolina’s first home, SEC matchup got underway vs. Missouri on Sept. 22.

In a recent edition of The Post and Courier about the start of the college football season, it was described as a “religion” in the South.

Well, isn’t that the truth.

Heading into the start of the 2013 season, which begins today, there are five SEC teams that are ranked in the Top 10 of the AP poll.

This week’s Head2Head trivia is about, you guessed it, SEC football.

Olivia Davis, who’s studying for her nursing exam, is our current champ and a University of Georgia fan, while her opponent is Erica McCall, who is new to the area and a Louisiana State University fan.
