SEC Will Remain With Eight Conference Games In 2025

The Southeastern Conference will look a little bit different in 2024 with two new additions, Texas and Oklahoma. Adding the two new schools from the Big 12 conference brings the total number of SEC programs now to sixteen and with that the East/West divisions are no longer a thing. There was some speculation that starting in 2025 the conference would go to nine conference games in the regular season schedule but Commissioner Greg Sankey has decided to hold off on that for at least another season and may revisit that for 2026.

What does this mean for Kentucky's conference schedule in 2025? Well, it won't look a whole lot different. In fact, it will involve the same exact SEC opponents from this upcoming 2024 season but the locations of the games will just flip-flop. That means Kentucky will go another season without playing in-conference opponents such as Alabama, Arkansas, LSU, Missouri, Mississippi State, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M.

Kentucky's home SEC games this season include Auburn, Georgia, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt, while their away schedule includes Florida, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Texas. Just for a visual this is what it would look like for the 2025 season according to Brandon Zimmerman of ESPN.

I won't sugarcoat it, I am a little bit bummed that it will be almost a carbon copy of the 2024 schedule but the idea of hosting Texas in 2025 is definitely intriguing. That alongside a potential road trip to Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn makes it a little bit better. However, Kentucky fans will have to wait just a little bit longer before their matchup with the other new addition to the SEC in Oklahoma.
