Posted by Tom on 2014/4/29 8:42:10 (135 reads) News by the same author

The Southeastern Conference, on Sunday afternoon, announced that it will stay with an eight-game schedule for football, but a non-conference requirement was added for its 14 schools.

Starting in 2016, all SEC teams must play AT LEAST one opponent from the other major conferences (Big 10, Big 12, Pac-12, or ACC). The defending SEC Eastern Division champion Missouri Tigers have announced a home-and-home series with the Purdue Boilermakers (Big 10) for 2017 and 2018, although contracts for that series have been been signed. This season, Missouri will host the Indiana Hoosiers of the Big 10 Conference. The eight-game conference schedule will feature the same breakdown as last year, with each team playing the six others in their division, a "rotating" opponent from the opposite division, and a permanent cross-division foe. For Missouri, starting this fall, the Arkansas Razorbacks will be that opponent for an annual game expected to be played over Thanksgiving weekend. The 2014 game between the Tigers and Hogs will be played in Columbia, with the teams meeting in 2015 in Fayetteville.

Assuming the Purdue games remain on the schedule, Missouri will be looking for a major conference opponent for 2016. For some schools in the SEC, the "major conference" non-conference requirement will not be a major scheduling change. South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia play annual rivalry games against ACC in-state opponents Clemson, Florida State, and Georgia Tech.
