SEC announces future football rotation schedule

The Southeastern Conference on Monday announced its future schedule rotation of non-permanent cross-division opponents through the 2025 football season.

The Florida Gators, which have a permanent annual game against the SEC West rival LSU Tigers as part of its schedule, will play the following teams as rotational opponents over the next 12 seasons:

2014: at Alabama (previously announced)
2015: vs. Ole Miss
2016: at Arkansas
2017: vs. Texas A&M
2018: at Mississippi State
2019: vs. Auburn
2020: at Ole Miss
2021: vs. Alabama
2022: at Texas A&M
2023: vs. Arkansas
2024: at Auburn
2025: vs. Mississippi State

The SEC announced earlier in May that the league would continue to build future schedules along the 6-1-1 format – six games against inter-division opponents, one against a permanent cross-division opponent and one against a rotational cross-division opponent. The conference also mandated that its league members schedule one game per season against an opponent from the “big five” conferences beginning in 2017.

Florida will host Kentucky, Missouri, South Carolina and LSU while playing away contests against Georgia (neutral site), Tennessee and Vanderbilt – in 2014, 2016, 2018, 2020, 2022 and 2024 – when its rotational cross-division showdown is a road contest.

UF will host Georgia (neutral site), Tennessee and Vanderbilt while playing road games against Kentucky, Missouri, South Carolina and LSU – in 2015, 2017, 2019, 2021, 2023 and 2025 – when its rotational cross-division matchup is a home game.
