The SEC sent out a press release late last week hyping their TV schedule. It got lost in the shuffle when Commissioner Slive stepped down a few months early. The SEC will kick off their season on CBS when Louisville plays Auburn in Atlanta at the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game on Sept. 5th. The next week CBS will be in Nashville for Georgia vs. Vandy. Verne Lundquist is coming to town!
After UGA handled the Dores in Athens, 44-17 this isn’t exactly the Iron Bowl but considering there aren’t a lot of conference matchups in week 2 CBS picked Georgia at Vandy over Kentucky at South Carolina, and LSU at Mississippi State. Tennessee plays Oklahoma out of conference and that game will likely air on ESPN or ABC. LSU vs Miss State could have some serious SEC West implications, especially with Dak Prescott coming back to Starkville for his senior season and it will likely air on ESPN.
Georgia is the favorite to win the SEC East this year. Nick Chubb will be the featured back at Georgia this year and will look to continue the success he had taking for Todd Gurley last year.
Vanderbilt will open against Western Kentucky on Sept. 5th in a game that is not an easy win. If the Dores can start 1-0 we will get a week of hype about Derek Mason’s defense shutting down Chubb and the Georgia offense.
The SEC hasn’t announced anymore info on Vanderbilt football gametimes or broadcasts. That will come out once the season gets going.
