CBS will use its six-day option before picking a game to broadcast on Nov. 16. The network is considering Auburn's home game against Georgia, along with Florida's trip to South Carolina.
Auburn and Georgia play Tennessee and Appalachian State, respectively, this weekend. It's hard to imagine CBS would pass on the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry if the Tigers take care of business against the Volunteers. They would be 9-1, ranked in the top 10, and the Bulldogs would be 6-3 and possibly just inside the top 25.
South Carolina is on a bye this week and will enter the game at 7-2 and as a top-15 team. The Gators, on the other hand, will either be 5-4 or 4-5, depending on their result against Vanderbilt this Saturday. The only real intrigue here is Steve Spurrier returning to the Swamp, but it's not the first time that's happened.
If Auburn-Georgia isn't selected by CBS, the game will be played at night on either ESPN or ESPN2. No matter what happens, it seems almost impossible that the matchup would drop to ESPN2.
The complete SEC schedule for Nov. 16, as it is currently known, follows:
|Troy at Ole Miss||11 a.m.||ESPNU|
|Kentucky at Vanderbilt||11:21 a.m.||SEC Network|
|Georgia at Auburn||2:30/6/6:45 p.m.||CBS/ESPN/2|
|Florida at South Carolina||2:30/6/6:45 p.m.||CBS/ESPN/2|
|Alabama at Mississippi State||6/6:45 p.m.||ESPN/2|
