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.
