Mississippi State Men's Basketball Learns SEC Opponents for 2021-22 Season

The list of SEC opponents for Bulldogs basketball this season has been released.
Publish date:

We now know who Mississippi State men's basketball will face in its 18 Southeastern Conference matchups for the 2021-22 hoops season.

The SEC will release the dates, times and television networks for the games at a later date.

MSU faces the defending SEC champion and 2021 NCAA Sweet 16 participant Alabama along with Ole Miss and South Carolina two times. The Bulldogs are also set to play a home-and-home series with Arkansas and Missouri. 

Other matchups include Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee and Vanderbilt at Humphrey Coliseum. The Bulldogs travel to Florida, Kentucky, LSU and Texas A&M.

This is a familiar slate for State, which recorded a top four finish and an 11-7 conference record with the same 18-game schedule last season .

It will be interesting to watch how MSU can build upon that success in 2020.
