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

Yawn

 

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

Yawn

 

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

Yawn

 

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

Yawn

 

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

Yawn

 

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

Yawn

 

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

Yawn

 

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

Yawn

 

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

“WHAT DO YOU MEAN ESPN3.COM IS BLACKED OUT!?”

Per League TV contract rules, all SEC institutions are guaranteed at least 1 In-house PPV game a year, and this season ULM drew the short straw. Thanks to advances in ESPN’s digital offerings, though, It’s not nearly as bad a proposition as it used to be. In fact, certain out of state residents will be in a better position to enjoy the game than those who live a block from the stadium.

This year the Tigervision game will be streamed live for free on ESPN3.com everywhere outside of the local blackout area. While that seems like the locals get screwed with the $34.50 bill, remember that the point of Tigervision is to recoup lost revenues from a poorly attended game. As is always the case, the best way to catch a Tigervision game is to actually go to the game. Great seats can be had for face value from any number of people around campus who claim to have better things to do this weekend.

For those not blessed with residing in the great state of Louisiana, your viewing options depend on whether or not ESPN3.com works for you. The quickest and easiest way to find out is to go to espn3.com and see if it works.

OUTSIDE LA and ACCESS TO ESPN3.com

You’re in luck, the game will be free for you. Head to espn3.com and start the party.

OUTSIDE LA and NO ACCESS TO ESPN3.com

Well, if you have the ESPN Gameplan package already, you are good to go. Otherwise go find a sports bar or alumni chapter in your area.

INSIDE LA and ACCESS TO ESPN3.com

The Geaux Zone is not nearly the mess it has been in years past, and by all accounts functioned well last year. If you’re stuck at work Saturday, It’s a great option if you can stomach the hefty price tag. The game will likely look like this

Game time set for 12:30 on PPV vs. Appalachian State

Florida
Content provided by Swamp Things – Gators Blog.

Game time has been set at 12:30 p.m. for Florida’s home game vs. Appalachian State on Nov. 20. The game will be aired live on Pay Per View. It will also be recorded by SUN Sports, and the taped presentation of the game will be shown at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 21 and 11 p.m. on Nov. 23.

The game comes the week after the Gators (5-3, 3-3 SEC) wrap up their conference schedule. They play South Carolina in The Swamp on Nov. 13, likely for a chance to play in the SEC championship game.

Wins this week at Vanderbilt and at home vs. the Gamecocks would get the Gators back to the title game for the fourth time in the past five seasons.
