The SEC has released the kickoff times and TV networks for the Nov. 6 slate of football games...kinda. Texas A&M hosts Auburn in their final SEC home game of the season, and it’s one of three games that will be selected using a six-day window. That means we won’t find out what time this game will start or where we can watch it until Halloween. It’s between our game, LSU at Alabama and Mizzou at Georgia for three time slots: 11 a.m. on ESPN, 2:30 p.m. on CBS, or 6 p.m. on ESPN.
A&M, Alabama and LSU are all on bye this coming Saturday, so the only games that can have an impact on this matchup appear to be No. 1 Georgia vs. Florida, Missouri vs. Vanderbilt (ha) and No. 10 Ole Miss vs. No. 18 Auburn, the latter of which seeming to be the linchpin. If Auburn knocks off the Rebels, it sets up a top 15 showdown at Kyle Field that would almost certainly be the 2:30 CBS game. But if the Tigers lose, and potentially fall out of the top 25, we could see our game moved to one of the ESPN timeslots (most likely the 6 p.m. one).
The good news is that it seems unlikely our game ends up in the 11 a.m. slot, as it appears on paper to be the best matchup of the week. But crazier things have certainly happened.
