By Chris Low

The grind of the SEC is one of the things that separates it from other conferences.

One grueling three-game stretch can easily turn a once promising season into a forgettable one.

With that in mind, we’ll take a look at the toughest, three continuous game stretches in the SEC in 2012. There can’t be a bye week mixed in between games. Here are the top five.

1. Mississippi State -- Oct. 27: Alabama on the road. Nov. 3: Texas A&M at home. Nov 10: LSU on the road.
2. Arkansas -- Nov. 10: South Carolina on the road. Nov. 17: Mississippi State on the road. Nov. 23: LSU at home.
3. South Carolina -- Oct. 6: Georgia at home. Oct. 13: LSU on the road. Oct. 20: Florida on the road.
4. Texas A&M -- Oct. 27: Auburn on the road. Nov. 3: Mississippi State on the road. Nov. 10: Alabama on the road.
