Thirteen SEC schools will be in action in two weeks and you’ll be able to catch everyone on television, as usual. Hard to believe there was an era when just a handful of games could be seen across the country on a given weekend.
The league released the TV schedule for November 3rd this afternoon and it’s as follows (with CBS using its six-day option on the afternoon choice):
Vanderbilt at Kentucky — 12:00pm ET on ESPNU
Missouri at Florida — 12:00pm ET on ESPN/ESPN2 or 3:30pm ET on CBS
Texas A&M at Mississippi State — 12:00pm ET on ESPN/ESPN2 or 3:30pm ET on CBS
Ole Miss at Georgia — 12:00pm ET on ESPN/ESPN2 or 3:30pm ET on CBS
Troy at Tennessee — 12:00pm ET on FSN
Tulsa at Arkansas — 12:21pm ET on SEC Network
New Mexico State at Auburn — 12:30pm ET on CSS
Alabama at LSU — 8:00pm ET on CBS
All those early kickoffs? That’s because CBS has exclusivity in terms of time slots and the November 3rd is doubleheader day for the network.
While on the subject of television, we received a few notes last week from people who read elsewhere that LSU-Texas A&M must been moved to an early time slot because ESPN/ABC wanted to protect the Texas-Baylor game it was airing last Saturday night. Turns out, Texas-Baylor wasn’t even nationally televised. The majority of the South got regional coverage of Florida State-Miami anyway. Another reason we don’t buy every conspiracy theory we stumble across.
