Birmingham, Ala. - The Southeastern Conference unveiled its 126-game men's basketball schedule for the 2016-17 season.

Conference play tips off on Thursday, December 29, with five games and continues on either Tuesday, January 3, or Wednesday, January 4. The December 29 start date will be the first time a conference game has been played in the month of December since Vanderbilt hosted Mississippi State on December 19, 1991

Kentucky (1), Mississippi State (4), Texas A&M (18) and Auburn (19) each have recruiting classes that rank among the top 20 of ESPN's RecruitingNation Class Rankings for 2016. Seventeen of ESPN's 2015 Top 100 recruits signed with SEC schools, including nine of the top 50 players.

Each of the games can be seen from anywhere in the nation. SEC Network will televise 68 games, ESPN or ESPN2 will televise 32 contests, ESPNU 20 and CBS Sports six. The SEC's games on ESPN platforms are exclusively branded as the "SEC on ESPN."

All of the games included in the ESPN package (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and SEC Network) will also be available through WatchESPN, which is accessible on computers, smartphones, tablets and connected devices to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider. Each of the CBS Sports games will be available to stream live in more than 150 U.S. markets via the CBS All Access subscription service, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports app.

The SEC Network will televise the first three days of the SEC Basketball Tournament (March 8-12) from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The semifinals and championship game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
