Report: Missouri to be Georgia’s first SEC opponent on 2012 Football Schedule

Missouri TigersThe Missouri Tigers may be Georgia’s first opponent on their 2012 football schedule, according to Eric Blumberg of KOMU8-TV (h/t Anthony Dasher of UGASports.com). The Bulldogs are expected to face the Tigers in Columbia.

The 2012 SEC football schedules are set to be released early next week. Georgia had published their 2012 football schedule in their 2011 Media Guide, but the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M to the conference has put that schedule in limbo.

What are some possible dates for the Georgia-Missouri game? The Bulldogs are currently slated to open the 2012 season at home on Sept. 1 against the Buffalo Bulls, while the Tigers have yet to announce a non-conference game for that date. The two teams could only play on this date if Georgia moves Buffalo down the schedule.

The next three weeks of the 2012 Missouri football schedule are filled with non-conference games: Southern Illinois (09/08), Arizona State (09/15) and at Miami, OH (09/22). The Dawgs were slated to play at South Carolina and host Florida Atlantic and Vanderbilt, respectively.

With the 2012 SEC slate likely to be changed from the prior format, Georgia will probably travel to Missouri on one of the dates currently occupied by either South Carolina (Sept. 8), Vanderbilt (Sept. 22) or Tennessee (Sept. 29). However, if Missouri keeps their non-conference schedule as is and fills the opening weekend date, the earliest that Georgia and Missouri could play is Sept. 29.

The other answer coming next week is which West Division team Missouri will replace on Georgia’s 2012 schedule. Since Georgia started a home-and-home at Ole Miss this year, you would think the Dawgs will get the Rebels in Athens in 2012. That would mean Alabama would be dropped next year.
