Well, if your cable provider hasn’t reached a deal with the SEC Network and you don’t have tickets to the opener vs. USM you might need to start making plans. The SEC announced today that the home game vs. Southern Mississippi will be played August 30th at 6:30 and televised by the new network.
All SEC teams will play home games on the SEC Network within the first four weeks of the football season. Many teams will play multiple times but MSU has only been selected for the USM game.
Based on the schedule, it looks like there will be an 11:00, 3:00 and 6:30 football game on the new network each Saturday. The first game of the year, South Carolina vs. Texas A&M, will be on the SEC Network.
In the four weeks that cover the announcement MSU plays USM, UAB, South Alabama and LSU. The LSU game will surely be on an ESPN platform but it’s unclear how the UAB and USA game will unfold. FSN and CSS are going away so the only direction I can guess is ESPNU or some type of pay-per-view/ESPN3 only type of broadcast for those games.
