Here are my projections for TV and kickoff times for Eastern Time ("Confirmed?" notes time, I put my predictions for the network in italics, if that is not confirmed).
|9/11||@ S. Carolina||ESPN/ESPN2||Noon||Yes||Tickets|
|9/25||@ Miss State||ESPNU/Gameplan||7:00||No||Tickets|
|10/2||@ Colorado||Fox Sports Net||7:00||Yes||Tickets|
|10/23||@ Kentucky||ESPN2/ESPNU ||7:00 ||No ||Tickets|
|10/30||vs. Florida (Jax)||CBS||3:30||Yes||Tickets|
Just a couple of thoughts. On Sept 11th, there really aren't that many scheduled noon games that would trump the SEC home opener scheduled at noon. Georgia Tech travels to Kansas at noon, but that is about it. On Sept 18th, Georgia Tech @ North Carolina and Maryland @ West Virginia are both at noon, plus there are a ton of other games up in the air, which is why I went with ESPN2 as the more likely TV outlet for Arky. The game times for the first three games are locked. Georgia at Kentucky could just as well be an SEC Net game, but looking at the schedule, I think that offers a bit better game for ESPN's mainline networks than other games that week.
CBS has already said their double header weeks will be Oct 2nd and November 13th. You can write down the Oct 2nd game between Alabama and Florida at Bryant-Denny as the Prime Time game of the
As for Georgia Tech, ABC has already committed to Oklahoma at Oklahoma State for that day and the CBS game should be LSU and Arkansas, but anything can happen if someone falls apart. Just looking at it, that feels like a night game in Athens to me.
