BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Southeastern Conference office on Tuesday released the schedules for all conference teams for the 2018 football season.

With 13 playing weekends, the 2018 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 1 with 14 games, including five neutral site games on opening weekend.

Alabama and Auburn are both set to kick the 2018 season off in style with big-time opponents. Alabama will open with Louisville in Orlando. Auburn will face off with one of the PAC12’s best teams over the last few seasons, the Washington Huskies.

The 2018 season will culminate with the SEC Championship Game in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Saturday, December 1.  It will be the 27th edition of the game and the 25th in the city of Atlanta.
