The SEC released its 2012 conference football schedule with new members Missouri and Texas A&M debuting next season.

Missouri will be based in the SEC East and host Georgia on Sept. 8, while Texas A&M will be in the West and host Florida on the same day. The first league game will be Aug. 30 when South Carolina visits Vanderbilt. Alabama will visit LSU in a rematch of the BCS national championship game on Nov. 3.

The SEC stated that the 2012 schedule is not based on any previous or future formats and that athletic directors will meet in the spring to decide the formula for future slates. Next year, each school will play eight games with six inside the division and two outside of it.

Each SEC team will release its own complete 12-game schedule at later dates.
