On Friday, the SEC announced schedule formats for football and basketball seasons along with new cross division rivals. Former cross division rivals South Carolina and Arkansas will part ways and welcome new foes. Missouri has been matched with border-state Arkansas while Texas A&M will now be cross division rivals with South Carolina.
The Southeastern Conference has also set new scheduling formats for the upcoming basketball and football seasons. The format called 6-1-1 will be used for football, excluding the upcoming 2012 season. The 6-1-1 will require each team in the conference to play a total of eight conference games. This includes six divisional, one permanent cross division rival (rotating home/away) and one rotating cross-conference game. This leaves each team to schedule four non-conference games throughout the season. [...]
For basketball seasons, the conference will use a 12-2-4 format. This format will require each team to play a total of 18 conference games. This includes 12 divisional (home/away), two cross division rival games (home/away) and four rotating cross-conference games (two home/two away). (This has been contradicted in comments.)
