LSU could not ask for a more favorable program approach on Friday afternoon. The Tigers will add Vanderbilt and Missouri to their 2020 slate, making it a little easier to maneuver through the 10-game conference.
Ed Orgeron and company are languishing 66 points on the Commodores in 2019, behind the aggressive offensive performance of Zoro. The Tigers lead the 23-7 all-time series and ride an eight-game winning streak in the 2020 matchup.
In 2016, Oregonran actually made his debut as head coach of LSU against Missouri, an outing that resulted in a 42–7 win for the Purple and Gold.
“We made every effort to create a schedule that is as competitive as possible and based on the current eight conference games that were scheduled for 2020,” said SEC commissioner Greg Sankey. “This schedule is a one-year anomaly that we have developed under the unique circumstances presented by the effect of COVID-19.”
A conference staff member texted Sports Illustrated National writer Ross DeLanger announced two additional teams shortly after the conference was announced.
“I want to see the algorithm in that formula,” the assistant wrote.
Here are 10 conference opponents to face this season. The SEC is expected to release a full schedule sometime next week.

This will reveal a lot about how the SEC ultimately decides the Tigers’ season. If games like Missouri, Vanderbilt and South Carolina could be sandwiched between more fierce competition, it would make the horrific schedule a little less challenging. For example, facing Florida and Alabama in back-to-back weeks.
The conference has already announced that each team will receive an open date in the schedule championship and an additional bye week for each conference team one week prior to the conference championship. Alabama, Florida, TexasAndM and Auburn were ranked in the top-13 of the Presiden Coach Poll on Thursday, with LSU coming in at No. 5.
“Buckle up, big boy,” Orken said in Tuesday’s edition. From the bench On ESPN 104.5. “What else can you say, man? What, a challenge. The best conference in the world. You play eight conference games and now you’re going to play. You’re going to play any out-of-conference game. But You know what to do? To get to the top of the climax, you have to be the best and beat the very best. This is part of being in the SEC, so I welcome the challenge. “
Of course, the college football season still hangs in the balance and Saturday’s news was restless to say the least. MAC became the first FBS conference to cancel a falling game, and the Big Ten prohibited padded practices shortly thereafter, “until further notice.”
The Big Ten Conference was announced today, based on the advice and advice of the Big Ten Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases and the Big Ten Sports Medicine Committee, that, until further notice, all institutions will remain in the first two days of the engagement period. In football (ie, helmets are the only safety equipment student-athletes can wear) as we continue to transition judiciously through Presidential practice.
We understand how this affects the program, as well as many questions about the feasibility of moving forward with the weather. As we have consistently stated, we will continue to conduct daily assessments to make the best decisions for the health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes, relying on our medical experts.
It is hard to imagine a world where the Big Ten pushed the 2020 season next spring and other conferences ultimately did not follow suit. SEC Commissioner Greg Sanke reacted to the news of Mac and Big Ten on ESPN Radio, saying that while the conference wants to be integrated, many decisions are being made separately.
“We want to connect, but the best example is back in March. Various conferences made independent decisions but all arrived at the same destination,” Sankey said.
“We all come to the decision from one point of view. Those perspective may or may not make a difference. This is the reality. You can recognize the truck of issues surrounding change but we are in an unprecedented environment.”
