New SEC Opponents Announced for Revised Football Schedule

Local Sports

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (August 7, 2020) – The Southeastern Conference on Friday announced the two additional non-divisional opponents each school will play as part of the SEC’s conference-only football schedule in 2020.

The identification of each school’s two additional non-divisional opponents follows last week’s announcement of a 10-game season beginning September 26.  The SEC plans to publicly announce the dates for all games within the next two weeks as it continues to monitor developments around COVID-19.

“We made every effort to create a schedule that is as competitive as possible and builds on the existing eight Conference games that had already been scheduled for 2020,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “This schedule is a one-year anomaly that we have developed under unique circumstances presented by the impact of COVID-19.”

Under normal circumstances, SEC schools play the other six teams in their division, two non-divisional opponents and four out-of-conference games each season.  In the newly revised schedule for 2020, each school will play four non-divisional opponents in addition to the other six teams in its division.
