SEC releases 2013 schedule
The Southeastern Conference has announced its 2013 conference football schedule.
Missouri will face Texas A&M at home and Ole Miss on the road from the West Division. The SEC East games are flipped in location from this year.
Here is Mizzou's full league slate:
October 5 at Vanderbilt
October 12 at Georgia
October 19 vs Florida
October 26 vs South Carolina
November 2 vs Tennessee
November 9 at Kentucky
November 16 Open
November 23 at Ole Miss
November 30 vs Texas A&M
The SEC stressed that the 2013 schedule is a stand alone slate and does not have an impact on future years.
"As we began working on the 2013 football schedule, it became apparent that the conference would need another year of the 'bridge' schedule to make everything work," said SEC Commissioner Mike Slive in a statement. "I appreciate the SEC transition team and our athletics directors, who came together to put this schedule in place. We look forward to starting with our new scheduling rotation in 2014."
As a result there are three instances of teams playing games against opponents in the same location as 2012. In addition, the new permanent rivals will not necessarily begin play until 2014. That explains why Arkansas does not appear on Mizzou's schedule.
"That was part of the 'bridge' schedule and really part of trying to have either a conference game or a non-conference traditional rival game on the last week of the season that created some issues for us," SEC Executive Associate Commissioner Mark Womack sain in a Q&A with the SEC Digital Network. "It created the situation where we had to look at holding off going to those permanent opponents for a year."

Missouri is scheduled to open the season at home against Murray State on August 31st and host Toledo on September 7th. The Tigers will play at Indiana on September 21st. The fourth non-conference opponent has not yet been determined. The final non-conference game will be played either September 14th or 28th with the other date being a bye.
