Bama Homecoming Has Late Kickoff
The Southeastern Conference announced Monday that CBS Sports has elected to use a six-day option for selection of games on October 16 with one of the repercussions of the decision affecting ESPN's decision on when to televise the Alabama vs. Ole Miss game.
The Crimson Tide and the Rebels could play at any one of the following three times: 5 p.m. CDT (6 p.m. Eastern) on ESPN 2; 6 p.m. CDT (7 p.m. EDT) on ESPNU; or 8 p.m. CDT (9 p.m. EDT) on ESPN2.
CBS will not choose the Alabama-Mississippi game, but will select between the Arkansas at Auburn, Mississippi State at Florida and South Carolina at Kentucky games for their 2:30 p.m. (CDT) telecast. The decision will be finalized by CBS next Sunday or Monday.
CBS is televising this week's Alabama game at South Carolina. Kickoff in Columbia Saturday will be at 3:30 p.m. EDT (2:30 central time). This will mark the third straight Alabama game on CBS.
