Auburn and Ole Miss' Oct. 5 game will kick off at 6 p.m. CT on ESPNU. After exercising its six-day option for the SEC games this coming Saturday, CBS has picked Georgia's trip to Tennessee for the 2:30 p.m. CT time slot.
Barring any unexpected changes to ESPN's normal talent roster, Clay Matvick and Matt Stinchcomb will call the game from the broadcast booth, and Auburn grad Dawn Davenport will provide sideline reporting.
CBS gets the first pick among SEC games, and the TV and kickoff schedule is usually determined two weeks in advance. The network was considering Auburn-Ole Miss, in addition to Florida's home game against Arkansas and Georgia's visit to Tennessee.
Auburn (3-1, 1-1 SEC) should have plenty of rest going into the game, since the Tigers are coming off a bye after their first loss of the season at LSU. Ole Miss (3-1, 1-1) traveled to Alabama Saturday and left Tuscaloosa battered after a 25-0 shellacking. With both sides deploying up-tempo spread offenses and suspect defenses, viewers could be in for a back-and-forth game with a good number of points.
The complete SEC TV schedule for Oct. 5 is as follows:
|Georgia State at Alabama
|Georgia at Tennessee
|Ole Miss at Auburn
|Arkansas at Florida
|LSU at Mississippi State
|Kentucky at South Carolina
|Missouri at Vanderbilt
