The Southeastern Conference released its 2014 football schedule today, and it will open with Texas A&M visiting South Carolina for a Thursday night telecast.
South Carolina and Texas A&M will become permanent cross-division opponents next year, as will Arkansas and Missouri, a matchup that will be held on the final Saturday of the regular season. The rotating cross-divisional pairings next season are Florida at Alabama, Georgia at Arkansas, Tennessee at Ole Miss, South Carolina at Auburn, Kentucky at LSU, Missouri at Texas A&M, and Vanderbilt at Mississippi State.
“This might have been the most difficult schedule for the SEC to complete since the beginning of the league,” Vanderbilt athletic director David Williams said. “There were many obstacles to overcome with Missouri and Texas A&M still being worked into the rotation and the launch next August of the SEC Network.”
