November 14 Start Times Set

So many sports and so little time. As football season nears its end and basketball season is heating up, the sports make accommodations for starting times. In the Southeastern Conference, that means waiting for television to set the schedule.

On Monday it was announced that the Alabama-Mississippi State football game a week from Saturday, on November 14 in Starkville, will kick off at 6 p.m. CST to be televised either by ESPN or ESPN2. The network will be selected following this Saturday's games.

November 14 is also the date of Alabama's official season-opening basketball game and the beginning of the Anthony Grant era. On Tuesday, The University announced that tipoff for that game against Cornell will be at 1 p.m. CST in Coleman Coliseum.

Alabama does have two exhibition games prior to the Cornell game. The Tide will host Montevallo at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and will host Augusta State at 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 10.

In football, The SEC also announced the Auburn-Georgia game will also kickoff at 6 p.m. and will be carried on either ESPN or espn2 on November 14.

Other SEC football games to be televised on Saturday, November 14, include Tennessee at Mississippi (11 a.m. on CBS), Kentucky at Vanderbilt (11:21 a.m. on the SEC Network), Florida at South Carolina (2:30 p.m. on CBS), Louisiana Tech at LSU (6 p.m. on ESPNU) and Troy at Arkansas (6:30 p.m. on CSS).
