The Southeastern Conference has announced the football schedules for all 14 SEC schools for the upcoming 2021 season.
After a successful 2020 season that saw 69 of 71 scheduled games played in the league’s revamped 10-game schedule, the SEC is returning to a 12-game regular season.
“We are proud to have completed the 2020 football season under unique circumstances and will now focus on playing the 2021 football season as scheduled,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “Circumstances around the COVID-19 virus will continue to guide our decision-making should any adjustments need to be made.”
With 13 playing weekends, the 2021 schedule includes one open date for each team and conference contests scheduled each week beginning in Week Two.
Each SEC team will play eight conference football games to include six games against division opponents and two games against non-division opponents. One of the non-division opponents will be a permanent annual opponent and the other non-division opponent will rotate each year.
The season begins the weekend of September 4 with 14 games, including two neutral site games on opening weekend.
The 2021 season will culminate with the SEC Championship Game in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Saturday, December 4. It will be the 30th edition of the game and the 28th in the city of Atlanta.
