The Southeastern Conference officially unveiled its expansion-modified 2012 football schedule today, revealing Missouri's first foray into the SEC as a member of the Eastern Division.
The Tigers will also begin an annual game against fellow Big 21 ex-pats Texas A&M, who joined the SEC West. The league has kept its existing cross-division opponents, and will pit the two newcomers against one another in a season finale slot November 24. The move would replace Kansas and Texas for the two schools.
Missouri will host Georgia, Vanderbilt and Kentucky from the East, and travel to South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee. Aside from the Aggies, they'll host BCS National Championship contender Alabama, a tough initial draw:
Sept. 8: GEORGIA
Sept. 22: at South Carolina
Oct. 6: VANDERBILT
Oct. 13: ALABAMA
Oct. 27: KENTUCKY
Nov. 3: at Florida
Nov. 10: at Tennessee
Nov. 24: at Texas A&M
