According to a ESPN SportsNation poll, Clemson-UGA won a poll for the top season opener involving a SEC team.

2nd place in the poll was LSU vs. TCU (15% percent) in Arlington, Texas. 3rd place was Alabama vs. Virginia Tech (14% percent).

We asked you in our SportsNation poll which of the 2013 season openers involving SEC teams was the most attractive, and the Georgia-Clemson tilt was a runaway winner.

With more than 11,000 votes cast, the Aug. 31 matchup between the Bulldogs and Tigers in Death Valley (the ACC version) received 51 percent of the vote.

The Georgia-Clemson game would be my pick, too. For one, this will be the first meeting between the old rivals since 2003, and there have been some memorable games in the series, which dates back to 1897.
