Southeastern Conference Unveils Permanent Baseball Foes

Southeastern Conference Unveils Permanent Baseball Foes


Beginning with the 2025 season, when Oklahoma and Texas are to join the league, Kentucky will face South Carolina and Vanderbilt each season as part of a new 10-series Southeastern Conference scheduling model, the SEC announced.

Each of the league’s members will face two “permanent” opponents each season along with eight rotating foes for a total of 30 conference games each spring, the same total number of in-league games that are currently played. The full 2025 schedule will be announced at a later date.

Another change is that standings will be kept in a single-division format as opposed to the current two-division model.

UK is 45-58 all-time versus South Carolina and owns a 150-157-5 record versus Vanderbilt.

The permanent SEC baseball opponents were determined based on a number of factors including geography, traditional opponents and strength of schedule. The permanent opponents are as follows:
