Birmingham, Ala. - The Southeastern Conference today announced the football schedules for all 14 SEC schools for the 2017 season. The slate includes 56 SEC games in 13 weeks culminating in SEC Championship Game.

With 13 playing weekends, the 2017 schedule includes one open date for each team and conference contests scheduled each week beginning the second weekend of September.

Each SEC team will play eight conference football games to include six games against division opponents and two games against non-division opponents. One of the non-division opponents will be a permanent annual opponent and the other non-division opponent will rotate each year.

The season begins the weekend of September 2 with 14 games, including five neutral site games on opening weekend. The schedule includes two games on non-traditional days, with Tennessee playing Georgia Tech on Monday, Sept. 4, and Ole Miss visiting Mississippi State on Thursday, November 23. It will mark the first year of a multi-year agreement to play the Ole Miss-Mississippi State game on Thanksgiving night.

The 2017 season will culminate with the first SEC Championship Game to be played in the new Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Saturday, December 2. It will be the 26th edition of the game and the 24th in the city of Atlanta.
