The Southeastern Conference released its league men’s basketball schedule and Mizzou opens its second season in the SEC by hosting the Georgia Bulldogs at Mizzou Arena on Jan. 8.
Frank Martin and South Carolina visit Columbia on Jan. 25. Kentucky comes to Mizzou Arena on Saturday, Feb. 1 and Mike Anderson’s Razorbacks on Thursday, Feb. 13th.
The Tigers follow that home-opener with back-to-back road trips to Auburn (Jan. 11) and Vanderbilt (Jan. 16). Mizzou’s trip to Auburn will be the first in series history between the two programs and the Tigers last traveled to Vanderbilt on Dec. 2, 2009, with the Commodores earning an 89-83 non-conference win.
ESPN has network flexibility on four of Mizzou’s games. The game at Vanderbilt (Jan. 16) and home dates vs. Alabama (Jan. 18), Arkansas (Feb. 13) and Tennessee (Feb. 15) will be televised on either ESPN or ESPN2. The network will make that designation as the games approach.
