Georgia vs. Auburn kickoff time....will be put off until next weekend

CBS has exercised a six-day option for Nov. 12 games. The following games will be held for selection by CBS, ESPN and the SEC Network on a six-day selection: LSU at Arkansas, Auburn at Georgia, South Carolina at Florida, Kentucky at Tennessee and Ole Miss at Texas A&M. The order of selection for these games is as follows: CBS has first selection for the 3:30 ET window; ESPN has second selection for the 7:00 pm ET window; CBS has third selection for the Noon ET window, SEC Network has fourth and fifth selections for the Noon ET and 7:30 ET windows.
The schedule for the weekend of Nov. 12 is comprised of seven conference games.
ESPN will air Mississippi State at Alabama at Noon ET while Vanderbilt at Missouri will air on The SEC Network at 3:30 p.m. ET.
SEC Football Television Schedule for Saturday, November 12, 2016:
Sat., Nov. 1212:00 p.m.Mississippi State at AlabamaESPN
Sat., Nov. 1212:00 p.m.TBDCBS
Sat., Nov. 1212:00 p.m.TBDSEC Network
Sat., Nov. 123:30 p.m.TBDCBS
Sat., Nov. 123:30 p.m.Vanderbilt at  MissouriSEC Network
Sat., Nov. 127:00 p.m.TBDESPN
Sat., Nov. 127:30 p.m.TBDSEC Network

So basically they are waiting to see how this week's games shake out. The way this traditionally works is CBS gets the first pick for the 3:30, then ESPN gets to pick, then CBS for the Noon. It looks like they've already set that noon ESPN game as their national game.

I'd guess it depends on how our game against UK goes. Kentucky wins, I'd bet they'll put UK at Tennessee on at 3:30. That leaves us with two noon games and two late games paired with two eastern timezone and two central timezone kickoffs. That isn't hard math.

We win and we might convince ESPN that having a night game in Athens for the South's Oldest Rivalry is interesting enough.
