The Missouri Tigers have yet to play an SEC game so far this season, so of course the 2023 SEC football schedule was announced on Tuesday night.
Mizzou’s 2023 non-conference schedule that has already been announced looks like this:
September 2nd — vs South Dakota
September 9th — vs Middle Tennessee
September 16th — vs Kansas State (let’s hope it goes better)
September 23rd — (Opponent TBD) It was reportedly at Memphis, so great work again by AD Desiree Reed-Francois of getting rid of a Group of Five road game.
The schedule release was announced on SEC Network’s “SEC Now” — and Missouri will open up conference play on September 30th at Vanderbilt.
Here’s a look at Mizzou’s full conference schedule:
September 30th — at Vanderbilt
October 7th — vs LSU
October 14th — at Kentucky
October 21st — vs South Carolina
October 28th — BYE
November 4th — at Georgia
November 11th — vs Tennessee
November 18th — vs Florida
November 25th — at Arkansas
Quick Analysis: Missouri has a manageable start to open up conference play, and it’s imperative for the Tigers to get off to a quick start. Vanderbilt and South Carolina are pretty much must wins in order for Mizzou to have a breakthrough season — because the back end of that schedule is basically murderer’s row. Getting Florida at home on their Senior Night is a plus, as the Tigers have had the Gators’ number recently — at least in Columbia.
