This edition of the 'Egg Bowl' is moving for regional telecast on Lincoln Financial Sports. LFS normally shows Saturday SEC games with a 11:30 CT kickoff. But this year CBS, the main SEC broadcast partner, plans to air two league games including one in LFS's timeslot.
Templeton also told reporters that he still expects the home game with Jacksonville State to be played as planned, on September 22. He did not speak with his counterpart at JSU Friday, but based on previous conversations Templeton believes the signed contract will be honored. JSU has a guarantee of $300,000 to come to Starkville for the non-conference game, and would have to pay a $150,000 penalty if they did not honor the contract.
