& who gets bumped on the night of Aug. 31? My bet is the UGA/Clemson game gets removed to show the LSU/TCU.
ESPN and ABC will once again be home to college football’s best games during opening week. No surprise, most of those games involve SEC teams.
The network announced the kickoff times for five season-openers featuring SEC teams this morning:
North Carolina at South Carolina — 6pm ET, Thursday, August 29th on ESPN
Ole Miss at Vanderbilt — 9:15pm ET, Thursday, August 29th on ESPN
Virginia Tech vs Alabama (in Atlanta) — 5:30pm ET, Saturday, August 31st on ESPN
Georgia at Clemson — 8:00pm ET, Saturday, August 31st on ABC
TCU vs LSU (in Arlington) — 9:00pm ET, Saturday, August 31st on ESPN
The network also announced that Kentucky’s game at Mississippi State on Thursday, October 24th will air on ESPN at 7:30pm ET.
CORRECTION – We initially listed the Clemson/Georgia game as being on ESPN… which would be rather tough since TCU/LSU is actually on ESPN. A rushed error. Our apologies.
