    we will be a 3:30 or 7 pm start


    The Southeastern Conference has announced its football television selections and kickoff times for games the weekend of Oct. 5.

    CBS has elected to use a six-day selection for games on Oct. 5. CBS will hold Arkansas at Florida, Ole Miss at Auburn and Georgia at Tennessee. The game CBS selects will be at 3:30 p.m. ET. The games not selected by CBS will be televised at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU, along with the LSU at Mississippi State game. CBS should make its selection no later than Sunday afternoon, Sept. 29.

    since LSU is not in one of the 3 games that are being held by CBS, that strongly suggests that Florida-LSU will be a 3:30 game the following week.

    As expected no matter the Arkansas game time.

    my guess is also that the only way we are the CBS game on 10/5 is for us to take care of business against Kentucky, while Arky beats A & M at home.

    LSU was not being considered because if they take the Gator game on 10/12, that would be three weeks in a row on CBS starting with Georgia Saturday
