11 a.m. kicks make the seats hot

Last Saturday didn’t bring good news for fans of the Texas A&M Aggies or the Arkansas Razorbacks, with A&M narrowly beating Nicholls State and Arkansas falling to TCU at home. The teams’ stellar performances were rewarded with an 11 a.m. kickoff when they face each other on Saturday, Sept. 23, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.

A quick look at the rest of the schedule shows an SEC slate dearth of juicy matchups, though Mississippi State at Georgia comes closest. You know it’s a bad week when Alabama at Vanderbilt is the 2:30 p.m. CBS game, and that only further illustrates just how little the network brass think of these two programs at the moment.

Special thanks to our pal Dan over at ATVS for this:

For two coaches whose seats grow hotter by the minute, losing the SEC opener to another struggling program may be difficult to recover from.
