The SEC should only require that each school play every other school within its division, but permit any school to schedule as many games as it wants with schools from the other division. However, the games against schools from the other division would not be counted in determining the division champion. Thus Tennessee would play all six of the other eastern division schools, and it would be free to schedule a game with Alabama of any other western division school, without risking any impact on its eastern division championship chances.
