The SEC announced its baseball programs conference schedules on Wednesday afternoon. The reigning SEC Champion Vols play the six SEC East programs, Texas A&M, LSU, Mississippi State and Auburn in their 10 series conference slate.

Tennessee opens its SEC slate in Athens before coming home to Knoxville face Florida.

Tony Vitello’s sixth Tennessee team then travels to Baton Rouge to face its greatest regular season test. LSU is the way-too-early No. 1 team in the country while the Vols are the No. 2 team.

Tennessee then returns to Knoxville for a two-week home stand against SEC east rivals Vanderbilt and Kentucky.

The Vols then head to South Carolina to face the Gamecocks before returning to Knoxville to cap off April with a three-game series against Texas A&M.

Tennessee opens the month of May by traveling to Missouri before facing Mississippi State in  the final home series of the regular season. The Vols conclude the regular season with a three-game series at Auburn.

Tennessee’s SEC schedule does not include matchups with Alabama, Ole Miss or Arkansas. The Vols not playing against Arkansas for the second straight season is disappointing given the budding rivalry between the two programs.

The Vols are still finalizing their non conference slate with a full schedule expected to be announced soon.
