The SEC has announced most of the Week 6 television schedule, with two exceptions. CBS has decided to exercise its six-day option, leaving two games on the table for its 3:30 PM Eastern time slot: Alabama at Arkansas and Tennessee at Texas A&M. The network will make its decision on Sunday, October 2; the game that CBS does not select will be carried instead on ESPN at 7:00 or 7:15 PM Eastern time. Presumably, the decision will come down to this weekend’s showdowns between Tennessee and Georgia, as well as Texas A&M-South Carolina; should the Vols and Aggies both win, they’d both be undefeated heading into their Week 6 matchup.
What about the other games? LSU will travel to Florida at Noon ET for a game that will be televised on ESPN. Also at Noon, Auburn travels to Mississippi State for the first game of the SEC Network’s Saturday tripleheader.
Following that game, the other two games to be carried on the SEC Network will be Vanderbilt at Kentucky at 4:00 PM Eastern, followed by Georgia at South Carolina at 7:30 PM Eastern. Those two will be up against the CBS game and the second ESPN game in those respective time slots.
Ole Miss and Missouri will be idle in Week 6.
