Just us in the first slot. We love to complain about these 11 a.m. games, but folks, this week we are the ONLY SEC matchup in the morning*. That’s how you corner an audience. Tune in to see those awesome Oilers tribute threads.
Arkansas vs. Texas A&M (Jerryworld)
*UMass also plays at Tennessee at 11 a.m. on the SEC Network. Tune in if you can’t resist canned Butch Jones coach-loquialisms, tentative running-up-the-score, and a chance to see UMass become the first team to go 0-5 by September 23rd.
