Well, dang it. First there was the Jacksonville State game. Then this week's game against Arkansas will be 11am. Now the SEC has announced that the Tigers and Rebels will be an 11am kick, as well.
This is on Halloween, too. You know there will be a number of people dressed up all over campus and at the game (personally I'll probably go the Payne Stewart route as I did last year for the South Carolina game). The one upside to this is that at least it should be a comfortable temperature.
This also means that Auburn will have only played one night game in its first four home games. Games against UGA, Idaho, and Alabama remain. The Iron Bowl will likely end up on CBS. UGA could, as well. Those games will be in the dark fairly quickly, but won't be true night games if that's the case.
There's still the chance Auburn vs UGA could be an early game, as well. Same goes for Auburn vs Idaho. A lot will depend on the way Auburn plays going forward. Someone will have to remind me on the rule for these early kickoffs, though. If I'm not mistaken, there was once a rule where a team could only be forced to have a certain number (1-2, right?) per year. Auburn ended up in a ton of them one year by virtue of playing road 11am games.
