Late-night BulldogsWe'll probably know something around 4 or 5:00 today. If it's not a 7:45 pm start, it will be a noon CBS double header start.
The Bulldogs will play Ole Miss on ESPN2 this Saturday night at 9 Eastern, and it appears the Oct. 7 game between Georgia and Tennessee will be at night as well. CBS has a noon-3:30 doubleheader that afternoon, but ESPN actually has first pick of the UT-UGA, LSU-Florida and Auburn-Arkansas matchups.
Georgia media relations director Claude Felton said Saturday that ESPN "protected" the Tennessee game before the season and does not expect the cable network to change course. ESPN prime-time telecasts kick off at 7:45.
Official announcements for the league's Oct. 7 games will be made Monday.
It would be our first night start at home against the Vols since the 2000 Goal Post Drought Buster game. Before that, I think you have to go back to '96. Or maybe '89 for a night start against UT at home.
