SEC Releases TV Schedule For First 3 Weeks Of Fall

The Southeastern Conference has taken the cover off the early-season football schedule and there are some dandy games mixed in amongst the usual flotsam.  All times are Eastern and the “SEC Network” remains the league’s syndicated package of games, for now:



Week One

8/30 (Thursday), ESPN, 7:00pm  — South Carolina at Vanderbilt

A great early-season “prove it” game for both squads


8/30 (Thursday), ESPNU, 7:30pm — Texas A&M vs Louisiana Tech at Shreveport, LA

La. Tech might have a blah name, but this will be a challenge for Kevin Sumlin in his opener


8/31 (Friday), ESPNU, 7:30pm — Tennessee vs NC State at Atlanta, GA

Recruits will be playing, not watching… but this features two teams that should be improved in 2012


9/1, SEC Network, 12:21pm — Buffalo at Georgia



9/1, ESPN, 7:00pm — Auburn vs Clemson at Atlanta, GA

These two played a high-scoring game last season


9/1, ESPNU, 7:00pm — North Texas at LSU



9/1, FSN, 7:00pm — Jackson State at Mississippi State



9/1, ABC, 8:00pm — Alabama vs Michigan at Arlington, TX

The biggest game Week One game in the country


9/1, PPV, 7:00pm — Central Arkansas at Ole Miss

Rebel fans will have to pay to see Hugh Freeze debut


9/1, PPV, TBA — Jacksonville State at Arkansas

Ditto Hog fans with John L. Smith’s debut


9/1, PPV, 7:00pm — Southeastern Louisiana at Missouri

Mizzou fans will have to pay, too


9/2 (Sunday), ESPN, 3:30pm — Kentucky at Louisville

This one will have big implications for Joker Phillips’ job status


Week Two

9/8, ESPN, 12:00pm — Auburn at Mississippi State

These two played a barn-burner last year


9/8, SEC Network, 12:21pm — East Carolina at South Carolina

ECU fans campaigned for SEC inclusion… now they get a taste


9/8, ESPN, 3:30pm — Florida at Texas A&M

Here we go… Kyle Field will be wild as ex-Texas assistant Will Muschamp is SEC Foe #1 for the Aggies


9/8, SEC Network, 3:39pm — Western Kentucky at Alabama



9/8, ESPN, 7:00pm — Washington at LSU

A good intersectional matchup between one great program and one that’s getting better


9/8, FSN, 7:00pm — UTEP at Ole Miss

Ex-Bama coach for a blink (and a drink) Mike Price finally visits an SEC West opponent


9/8, ESPNU, 7:00pm — Louisiana-Monroe at Arkansas at Little Rock, AR



9/8, CSS, 7:30pm — Kent State at Kentucky

A riveting matchup of national importance… and that opinion has nothing to do with my weekly work on CSS


9/8, ESPN2, 7:45pm — Georgia at Missouri

UGA will come in shorthanded and Tiger fans will be crazed with SEC Fever… this won’t be as easy as for the Dawgs as some seem to think


9/8, Big Ten Network, 8:00pm — Vanderbilt at Northwestern

Here’s guessing Big Ten commish Jim Delany loves forcing SEC fans to watch his network


9/8, PPV, TBA — Georgia State at Tennessee

Pay to yawn


Week Three

9/15, SEC Network, 12:21pm — Louisiana-Monroe at Auburn



9/15, CSS, 12:30pm — Presbyterian at Vanderbilt

What… Episcopalian was busy?


9/15, CBS, 3:30pm — Alabama at Arkansas

The first CBS “Game of the Week” and it’s a doozy… for Bama’s title hopes and John L. Smith’s job hopes


9/15, FSN, 3:30pm — Texas A&M at SMU

Two old Southwest Conference rivals get together


9/15, ESPN, 6:00pm — Florida at Tennessee

How the mighty have fallen… UF and UT won’t open CBS’s SEC coverage for the first time since the Earth cooled


9/15, ESPN2, 7:00pm — Arizona State at Missouri

A good intersectional matchup… more SEC versus Pac-12 games, please


9/15, ESPNU, 7:00pm — Western Kentucky at Kentucky



9/15, FSN, 7:00pm — UAB at South Carolina



9/15, ESPN3, 7:00pm — Mississippi State at Troy

An internet-only broadcast… ouch


9/15, CSS, 7:30pm — Florida Atlantic at Georgia

Exciting college football action… and again, this has nothing to do with those CSS checks I like cashing


9/15, PPV, 8:00pm — Idaho at LSU

Bet the Vandals will hear a lot of that “Chinese Bandits” theme


9/15, ESPN, 9:15pm — Texas at Ole Miss

The Rebels may get crushed, but at least they’re playing a name foe on actual television



Others Already on the Schedule

9/22, FSN, 12:00pm — Ole Miss at Tulane

10/27, CBS, 3:30pm — Georgia vs Florida at Jacksonville, FL

11/3, CBS, 3:30pm — Doubleheader Game 1

11/3, CBS, 8:00pm — Doubleheader Game 2: Alabama at LSU

11/10, CBS, 12:00pm — Doubleheader Game 1

11/10, CBS, 3:30pm — Doubleheader Game 2

11/23 (Friday), CBS, 2:30pm — LSU at Arkansas

12/1, CBS, 4:00pm — SEC Championship Game at Atlanta, GA



I certainly may be wrong, but it looks like Mizzou already has more prime time games scheduled for TV than we had in the Big 12 over several seasons.


I would love to see the NCAA put John Pennington in charge of football scheduling!  I'm guessing the only cupcakes teams would get would be Kentucky and Vanderbilt!
