Awesomeness like this should happen at a reasonable football hour. Not pre-noon.
Last year, the SEC ran into a problem on Nov. 11th when the SEC full slate of action included
- Alabama at LSU (ESPN Night Game)
South Carolina at Florida (CBS 3:30 pm EST)
Tennessee at Arkansas (ESPN2 Night Game)
Georgia at Auburn (LF Sports at 11:30 CST)
The SEC is swapping Bama's games with LSU and Miss. State. That thins out the SEC schedule for Nov. 10, 2006, and it strengthens the league's TV schedule for Nov. 3, 2006. The move should avoid one of the league's TV log jams from last year.
It's a small win, but it's a good thing. Ultimately, for Dawg fans it almost assures that UGA vs. AU will be a 3:30 game or a night game next year in Athens.
PS -- Not that it matters, but UGA plays Troy on Nov. 3rd next year. See our full 2007 schedule.
