SEC releases 2013 conference football schedule

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Southeastern Conference has announced its 14-team conference game schedule for the 2013 season.  SEC games are scheduled for each week of the regular season.

Each SEC institution will release its own complete 12-game schedule.  The schedule is subject to change based on television selections.

The first conference game of the 2013 season will be during the first weekend of the regular season when Ole Miss visits Nashville to take on Vanderbilt.

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.

"There were so many variables in dealing with conference games, and the three repeat venue games, while not desired, provided the only solution to the complex scheduling issues," said Slive.

The 2013 schedule has 14 playing weekends which provides for two open dates for each institution. 

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