Arkansas Razorbacks SEC East Opponent Schedule Through 2025

Here's the list of SEC opponents for the next decade.

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

With the news a few weeks ago that the SEC was sticking with the 6-1-1 8-game scheduling format (6 divisional games, 1 permanent cross-divisional opponent, 1 rotating cross-divisional opponent), the SEC went ahead and set up the rotation for the next decade.

Here's the rotation for Arkansas

2014 vs. Georgia

2015 at Tennessee

2016 vs. Florida

2017 at South Carolina

2018 vs. Vanderbilt

2019 at Kentucky

2020 vs. Tennessee

2021 at Georgia

2022 vs. South Carolina

2023 at Florida

2024 vs. Kentucky

2025 at Vanderbilt

Notes from me:

Arkansas will finally be travelling back to Knoxville in 2015 for the first time since 2007.

The Hogs don't get Vandy or Kentucky back on the schedule until 2018 and 2019, respectively.

In fact, the Hogs don't travel to Vanderbilt again until 2025, which means Arkansas will go a whopping 14 years between playing there. Repeat, that's 14 years between playing in an SEC stadium. 14.

Arkansas doesn't go back to Athens until 2021, which will be the first time since 2010. That's stupid. And that's actually a year sooner than it would normally be. Under this scheduling format, the Hogs will make trips to each of the six SEC East schools (other than Missouri) just once every 12 years.

That's so long that the same game doesn't happen twice on this schedule.

This is why you won't see a stronger proponent of doing away with the 6-1-1 than me. Either go to 9 games or end the permanent cross-divisional opponent.

But that won't happen. This is set up for the next decade unless there's a reason for drastic change, such as more conference realignment or the SEC missing out on a second team in the playoff as a result of a weak conference schedule.

So this is what we'll be living with for a while.
