Missouri to host New Mexico State in 2022, releases 2020 SEC schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Missouri Tigers have added the New Mexico State Aggies to their 2022 football schedule and have also released their full 2020 football schedule.

Missouri will host New Mexico State at Faurot Field in Columbia on Nov. 5, 2022. The game will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.

The New Mexico State game was announced in a release that includes Missouri’s full non-conference schedule through the 2024 season. Every other game except the New Mexico State was previously reported.

Interestingly, Missouri also announced their full 2020 football schedule today, which included dates for their eight SEC contests. The SEC usually doesn’t release their conference schedule until the Fall.

Note: Shortly after releasing their 2020 schedule, Missouri removed it from their release.

Missouri will open the 2020 season with a non-conference contest at home against the Central Arkansas Bears on Sept. 5. The Tigers open SEC play in Week 2 at home against the Vanderbilt Commodores on Sept. 12.

The Tigers then hit the road for their first away game of the season against the South Carolina Gamecocks on Sept. 19. Mizzou then returns home to host the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Sept. 26.

Back-to-back road games are up next for the Tigers. Missouri travels to take on the Tennessee Volunteers on Oct. 3, followed by a trip to Provo, Utah, to take on the BYU Cougars on Oct. 10.

The Georgia Bulldogs visit Faurot Field on Oct. 17, and then the Kentucky Wildcats visit on Oct. 24 for Mizzou’s Homecoming game.

After an off week on Oct. 31, Missouri heads out for consecutive road games at the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Nov. 7 and at the Florida Gators on Nov. 14.

Missouri closes out the 2020 regular-season with back-to-back home games against the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns on Nov. 21 and the Arkansas Razorbacks on Nov. 28.

Note that since Mizzou’s schedule was released and subsequently pulled, all dates are tentative and subject to change.

Missouri’s 2020 non conference schedule may be the most pathetic non conference schedule of a P5 school of all time.

Nope Oregon 2018 holds that distinction
Bowling Green
Portland State
San Jose State

at least Mizzou travels to BYU

Please provide context GatorHater when you post. Texas A&M cancelled with Oregon late in the scheduling game so Oregon had to scramble to fill that 2018 date.

Sam please provide context when making excuses. Texas A&M canceled the series with Oregon in October of 2014. This gave the Duck over 3 years to find an opponent. Not impossible…
