ESPN is reporting that games against FBS independents BYU, Army and Notre Dame will now count toward the SEC's requirement of playing one nonconference Power 5 team per season.
quote:

Beginning in 2016, the SEC will require its league members to play at least one nonconference Power 5 team. Notre Dame had always been included as a nonconference Power 5 team by the SEC, but the league recently decided to also allow games against BYU and Army to count, sources said.
The SEC and ACC are the only Power 5 leagues that require their league members to play at least one nonconference Power 5 opponent.

While SEC teams have future games schedule to play BYU and Notre Dame, none have scheduled Army yet.
