SEC announces 2013 football schedule

The Gators, Gamecocks, Volunteers and Aggies are coming to Columbia next year.

Missouri's second season in the SEC will include visits from Florida (Oct. 19), South Carolina (Oct. 26), Tennessee (Nov. 2) and Texas A&M (Nov. 30). The Tigers will play road games at Vanderbilt (Oct. 5), Georgia (Oct. 12), Kentucky (Nov. 9) and Ole Miss (Nov. 23).

The 2013 schedule is considered a "bridge" schedule and is not based on future scheduling formats. Missouri's annual rivalry game with Arkansas is expected to begin in 2014.

The Tigers also have three non-conference games currently scheduled. Missouri will host Murray State (Aug. 31) and Toledo (Sept. 7) and travel to Indiana (Sept. 21). The Tigers will add one more non-conference game on one of three open dates (Sept. 14, Sept. 28 or Nov. 16).
