The SEC released it's 2014 football team schedules today. This was done with exactly one year to go to the August 21, 2014 premier of the SEC Network. A conference game between Texas A&M and South Carolina scheduled for Thursday, August 28th in Columbia, South Carolina will open the network's football coverage. Since adding 2 new members the SEC has been working on tinkering the conference schedule. As of now, each team is still scheduled for 8 conference game. Commissioner Mike Slive commented that the league will look into a 9 game conference schedule, but it wouldn't be implemented until the 2016 season at the earliest. Full schedules for all 14 SEC teams can be found here.
Arkansas schedule feature a couple of changes that may rub some Razorback fans the wrong way. The biggest being the move of the LSU game from the Friday after Thanksgiving. The Hogs will now play new rival Missouri on that day. In addition, the Texas A&M game will take place at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas instead of on campus in College Station. The latter may not bother fans as much as the former.
The Hogs add four new non-conference opponents in playing at old Southwest Conference foe Texas Tech and at home versus Nicholls State, Northern Illinois and UAB.
