Vanderbilt's SEC West opponents announced through 2025

May 19, 2014

Birmingham, Ala. - Vanderbilt will host Texas A&M in 2015, Alabama in 2017, LSU in 2019, Mississippi State in 2021, Auburn in 2023 and Arkansas in 2025 as part of an 12-year rotation of non-division opponents in the Southeastern Conference, league officials announced today.

As part of the SEC announcement on long-range scheduling within the conference, league athletic directors also re-confirmed the decision to play an eight-game conference schedule, including six games against division opponents and two games against non-division opponents. One of the non-division opponents will be a permanent annual opponent and the other non-division opponent will rotate each season.

Vanderbilt will continue to play Ole Miss as its permanent SEC Western Division opponent.

Vanderbilt's schedule through 2025 with other Western Division teams follows:
   2014    at Mississippi State
   2015    vs. Texas A&M
   2016    at Auburn
   2017    vs. Alabama
   2018    at Arkansas
   2019    vs. LSU
   2020    at Texas A&M
   2021    vs. Mississippi State
   2022    at Alabama
   2023    vs. Auburn
   2024    at LSU
   2025    vs. Arkansas

In 2014, Vanderbilt's permanent SEC foes will be Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee and Ole Miss at home and Georgia, Kentucky and Missouri on the road. Sites will alternate home and away through 2025, according to the SEC announcement.

According to the announcement, schools will not play their non-divisional rotating opponents in back-to-back seasons to allow for schools to play all conference members on a more frequent basis. Also, the rotation of teams in the first six years of the 12-year cycle is not identical to the rotation in the second six years in order to maintain four home games and four road games per season for each school.
