Missouri already knew the ten teams they would face in the 2020 season. Now they know the order.The Tigers are set to play in Alabama, Colombia on September 26, as the Southeastern Conference just revealed on Monday afternoon. Here is the rest of the schedule.

The Tigers play six straight games to start the season, securing their first open week on November 7. All teams departed on December 12 with the SEC title game scheduled for December 19, allowing for flexibility due to the unknown of a schedule impacted by COVID-19.On July 30, the SEC elected to participate in a ten-game conference format only for the 2020 season. That meant BYU, eastern Michigan, central Arkansas, and Louisiana were off the Missouri schedule. . Eight days later, the league announced the two additional opponents for each team. Missouri drew Alabama and LSU, making the Tigers the toughest plus two recipients in the league.

These are two of Mizzou’s top three opponents. In the first three weeks, the Tigers will face teams that combined to go 34-7 last season with two of those games on the road.

There have been reports that some coaches were not thrilled with how the league arrived at the new schedules.

“At this point, it’s sour grapes,” Drinkwitz said Monday. “They’re going to reveal who we play and that’s who we play. It’s not like any team you have is going to be a bad football team. I think the frankness of the conversation was that everyone understood exactly. how the teams were distributed. At the end of the day… put it on the schedule, let’s rock and roll. ”

The second half of the Tigers’ schedule begins with the Eastern Division favorite as Georgia arrives in town. This will mark the third straight week without a road trip for the Tigers with two home games in sandwich for the open week. Mizzou ends the season with South Carolina, Mississippi State and Arkansas, three of the most favorable games on what will be one of college football’s toughest schedules. The Tigers’ top five opponents combined to go 48-18 a year ago; their last five have finished 32-32.
