2021 SEC football schedule to be announced on Wednesday

By Kevin Kelley -

The 2021 SEC football schedule will be announced on Wednesday, Jan. 27, the conference has announced.

The SEC typically announces their football schedule about one year prior to the season. However, the announcement for 2021 was delayed due to the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, such as the continuation of the pandemic, SEC teams will play eight conference games and four non-conference contests. Tennessee is the only SEC school that does not have all four of their non-conference games known.

Opening weekend of the 2021 SEC football schedule features several good non-conference contests, three of which are neutral-site games — Georgia vs. Clemson (in Charlotte, NC), Miami FL vs. Alabama (in Atlanta, GA), and Louisville vs. Ole Miss (in Atlanta, GA; Labor Day). LSU also travels to take on the UCLA Bruins in the first game of a home-and-home series that concludes in 2024.

The 2021 SEC Championship Game will be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga., on Saturday, Dec. 4.
