LSU will play at South Carolina next year and will meet Southeastern Conference newbie Missouri for the first time in nearly 40 years in 2016, according to future schedules the league released Monday.

The conference released each team’s rotating cross-divisional opponent through 2025.

The league decided last month to keep the 6-1-1 scheduling model. Teams play six games against teams from their own division, one permanent opponent from the other division — for LSU, that’s Florida — and one rotating opponent.

LSU will play its first game in Columbia, S.C., since 2008 next season. The Tigers play Kentucky this year as their cross-divisional opponent.

Missouri takes the trip to Baton Rouge in two years for the first time in that program’s history. LSU and Missouri have met once — in 1978 in the Liberty Bowl.

The Tigers will travel to Tennessee in 2017 for the first time since 2011 and will play Vanderbilt in Nashville in 2019 for the first time since 2010. LSU plays at Kentucky in 2021. The Tigers haven’t played there since 2007.
