2013 SEC Football Schedules Announced

By Kevin Kelley -

SECThe 2013 SEC Football Schedules were officially announced today. Conference play begins on Aug. 31 when Ole Miss travels to face Vanderbilt.

Featured 2013 non-conference match-ups include Alabama vs. Virginia Tech (at Atlanta, GA), Arkansas at Rutgers, Washington State at Auburn, Florida at Miami (FL), Georgia at Clemson, Louisville at Kentucky, LSU vs. TCU (at Arlington, TX), Mississippi State vs. Oklahoma State (at Houston, TX), Missouri at Indiana, Ole Miss at Texas, North Carolina at South Carolina, Tennessee at Oregon, SMU at Texas A&M, and Vanderbilt at Ohio State.

From the SEC:

The 2013 schedule is considered a “bridge” schedule and not based on any other previous or future scheduling formats. The SEC Athletics Directors will convene in Spring 2013 to begin formulating schedules for the 2014 season and beyond.

“As we began working on the 2013 football schedule, it became apparent that the conference would need another year of the ‘bridge’ schedule to make everything work,” said SEC Commissioner Mike Slive. “I appreciate the SEC transition team and our athletics directors, who came together to put this schedule in place. We look forward to starting with our new scheduling rotation in 2014.”

The eight-game conference schedule consists of six games played inside the division and two games against teams from the opposite division. The cross-divisional common opponents that were previously announced by the conference will not take place until 2014.

In order to maintain a balanced schedule for the 2014 season and beyond, there are three games that will have repeat hosts from the 2012 schedule. Those games are Ole Miss at Alabama, Texas A&M at Ole Miss and Georgia at Auburn.

The 2013 SEC Championship Game will be played at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on Saturday, Dec. 7.

    NO team in any level of football should play 3 consecutive road games. South Carolina shouldn’t have to do that.

      next season looks like AU is doing that too

      Oct. 19 – at Texas A&M
      Nov. 2 – at Arkansas
      Nov. 9 – at Tennessee
      even though they have an off week between A&M and Arkansas that is still tough

  8. Ole Miss
    October 22, 2012 at 12:23 am

    Anyone have an idea why ole miss plays LSU midway threw the season next year? Instead of second to last.

    • Kevin Kelley
      October 22, 2012 at 8:46 am

      This is a “bridge” schedule according to the SEC. So the Ole Miss-LSU matchup may return later in the season. Several things were changed in order to make this schedule.

  9. Ole Miss
    October 22, 2012 at 12:25 am

    Why does ole Miss’s first five games only include 1 home game???

  10. BamaFan#1
    October 29, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Missouris got a freakin cupcake schedule! The only team they have a chance at losing to is Florida.

      And maybe Ole Miss on a very good day….since they are playing in Oxford.

      November 26, 2012 at 2:57 pm

      Since they totally beat South Carolina, Georgia, and Vanderbilt this year. But yea the Gators will be the team to take down the mighty tigers next year. Come on. I agree they are playing some wack non conference teams but they are going to be at the bottom of the bag in the East as well as the rest of the SEC

    The whole thing got screwy whenever TAMU cried and threw a hissy like a little 3 yr old and then got moved over to the SEC…money, money, money, thats what it was all about… I think the powers that be done it just to shut them up…. the REAL reason is because they got tired of UT in Austin kicking the doody out of their arses everytime they met on the gridiron. I was ONCE a TAMU fan…even done some construction on their campuses…was once a fan of the BIG 12…NO LONGER!!! I am SEC and ALABAMA ROLL TIDE ALL they way now, BABYYY!!!!! GO ‘BAMA!!! KICK the doody outta TAMU in 2013!!! And if anyone questions my comments… I feel I have all the right to say them because I live only 50 minutes fr the nasty smelly stinking campus.

    Obviously Florida, LSU, Tex A&M, and Alabama are the best teams in the SEC and the Country. Getting tired of this Georgia bull crap schedule… hey if they wanna play a Vandy or Tennessee team and win by 30 and call it a big game for the schedule then by all means lets put them in the top 5??? Thats stupid… Im a LSU fan and Im sorry but Georgia doesn’t play ANYONE except florida and us every millennium! Us and Florida deserve to be called great teams for our schedules. Forget Georgia.

      As a UGA fan, I remember the last JAX meeting, and I vaguely remember details about Florida’s last bowl game. It was an embarassment to the SEC. They did not belong where they were all season. Hell UF got all they wanted from Bowling Green too.

  20. Connor R
    February 4, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    Bowling Green? Really? What about getting a scare from a woeful Kentucky and Tennessee team? Florida blew both out. Florida’s bowl game resulted from a lack of who they were playing…they expected an Oklahoma team and I garuntee they would have been better prepared, but they played a good Louisville squad. And next year when Georgia goes 8-5 loosing to LSU, Florida, Clemson, GA Tech, and Vandy…they’ll be right back where they should be in the SEC.. the bottom.
