COLUMBIA — The Missouri Tigers will begin their first season as members of the Southeastern Conference by hosting three night football games.

The SEC released times and TV schedules for the first three games for each of its 14 teams Monday. Missouri landed two ESPN2 showings and three starts at 6 p.m. CDT or later.

  • Sept. 1 vs. Southeastern Louisiana — 6 p.m. on pay-per-view
  • Sept. 8 vs. Georgia — 6:45 p.m. on ESPN2
  • Sept. 15 vs. Arizona State — 6 p.m. on ESPN2

The SEC will announce the start times and TV schedules for each member's remaining nine games 12 days before each game, starting Sept. 10. But the league can also announce games with just six-day advance notice.

Each SEC league game will air on one of the conference's television partners: CBS Sports, the ESPN platforms (ESPN, ESPN2,, ESPNU and the SEC Network), Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast or FOX Sports South.
