Update on Ole Miss game time situation

This television deal with the SEC can make things confusing when trying to make travel plans. Here is the latest.

The networks have exemptions to hold off making a decision until the Monday before the game. They exercised that this week so four games remain in the pot for four time slots.

The games: Alabama at Ole Miss, Auburn at Arkansas, Georgia at Tennessee and Houston at Mississippi State.

The time slots/network: 2:30 p.m/CBS, 11 a.m./ESPN, 11:30 a.m./ESPNU, 11:21 a.m./SEC Network. (All times are central).

Games already set: Florida at LSU (7 p.m./CBS), Kentucky at South Carolina (11:30 a.m./FSN), Vanderbilt at Army (CBS College Sports/11 a.m.)

I wonder how much the Ole Miss loss at South Carolina affected the decision to wait for the networks. It seems like having two top-5 teams would be a lock for the 2:30 CBS game at least.

Either way, we’ll know something by next Monday at the latest.
