HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — The Southeastern Conference is getting ready for the upcoming football season.

Florida coach Will Muschamp, Missouri's Gary Pinkel, Hugh Freeze of Ole Miss and South Carolina's Steve Spurrier will appear the first day along with a few players.

The schedule Wednesday includes Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin, Kentucky coach Mark Stoops, Mississippi State's Dan Mullen, Butch Jones of Tennessee, Auburn's Gun Malzahn and Bret Bielema of Arkansas.

Two-time defending national champion Nick Saban of Alabama is up Thursday, along with LSU's Les Miles, Georgia's Mark Richt and Vanderbilt's James Franklin.
