2023 SEC football schedule: Release set for Tuesday evening

By Kevin Kelley -

The 2023 SEC football schedule will be released on Tuesday evening, September 20, the conference announced via in-game broadcast promos on Saturday.

The complete 2023 SEC football schedule will be unveiled on Tuesday at 7:00pm ET / 6:00pm CT on a special schedule release show on the SEC Network.

The Vanderbilt Commodores will be the first SEC team to kickoff their 2023 season. Vandy is scheduled to host the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors in Week Zero on Saturday, Aug. 26, 2023.

12 SEC teams will kick off their seasons in Week 1 on Saturday, Sept. 2, 2023. Featured non-conference matchups to open the season include Florida at Utah, South Carolina vs. North Carolina (in Charlotte, N.C.), and Tennessee vs. Virginia (in Nashville, Tenn.). Additionally, LSU will take on Florida State in Orlando, Fla., on Sunday, Sept. 3.

The Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns are currently slated to join the SEC for the 2025 season. It’s unlikely that either school will depart the Big 12 early and play in the SEC in 2023, which was backed up by a recent statement by SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey.

I don’t understand the need to release it before this season is even over.
Why not wait until some random Tuesday in February to release it, and they can build hype?

Maybe for recruiting purposes? Figure out when to get recruits on campus the sooner, the better.
