2021/22 schedule

Looking over the SEC schedule released today, it looks like the Hogs need to get off to a fast start. The first 10 conference games include road trips to MSU, A&M, LSU, Ole Miss, and UGA… with 5 home games in which we will be certain favorites.
The last 8 conference games will be a tough stretch: Auburn, @ Alabama, @ Missouri, Tennessee, @ Florida, Kentucky, LSU, and @ Tennessee.

Arkansas has some fun home Saturday games lined up with West Virginia, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Kentucky. Then LSU comes in four days after the Wildcats.

So the home and homes are TAM, SAO, Misery, Moo U and EOE-K. Soon enough I’ll have to specify which EOE in all SEC settings.

That’s the most back-loaded conference schedule I’ve ever seen. Only one of the first ten SEC opponents is projected to make the tournament and then seven of the last eight are.
