ST. LOUIS, Mo- The Southeastern Conference announced the dates and opponents for the 2021 football season Wednesday.
The return to 8 conference games comes after the 2020 season saw a rugged schedule that saw each team play a conference-only schedule.
Former Mizzou assistant Josh Heupel’s return to Columbia October 2 as the new Head Coach at Tennessee. Homecoming is slated for the following week against North Texas. The Tigers will host Texas A&M October 16 in a matchup that will bring a pair of St. Louis area standouts in Antonio Johnson (East St. Louis) and Antonio Doyle, Jr. (Lutheran North) closer to home.
The Tigers will host Florida November 20 in a game that will no doubt rekindle memories of the 2020 affair which included a brawl at halftime and Florida Head Coach Dan Mullen’s Darth Vader Halloween costume in the postgame press conference.
The regular season will close out November 27 against Arkansas in a game played in Little Rock.
