BIRMINGHAM, Ala. --- In conjunction with the Southeastern Conference office, the LSU men's tennis team announced its SEC schedule Thursday for the 2013 season.
The Tigers will kick off SEC play next year at Vanderbilt, who is currently ranked in the top-50. The Tigers are currently 45-16 against the Vanderbilt Commodores.
The SEC released the entire conference schedule, adding a historically strong Texas A&M to an already rigorous lineup. With the addition of Texas A&M to the conference next season, every men's team will play six home and six road matches. Missouri does not have a men's tennis team.
The 2013 LSU men's tennis schedule is not based on any other previous or future scheduling formats. The SEC Athletics Directors are currently formulating scheduling principles for the 2013-14 season and beyond.
LSU will play host to Auburn (March 8), Ole Miss (March 22), Mississippi State (March 24), Georgia (April 5), Tennessee (April 7) and Arkansas (April 12).
The Tigers will travel to Vanderbilt (March 1), Kentucky (March 3), Alabama (March 10), Texas A&M (March 15), Florida (March 29) and South Carolina (March 31).
LSU's full 2013 schedule will be released at a later date.
