Georgia game moved to ESPN

Thanks to the Florida State-Boise State game moving, we’re on the Mothership on Saturday.

NCAA Football: Georgia at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

We have a new network for Saturday night’s season opener.

It wouldn’t be college football season without a game being moved due to a hurricane. Initially, ESPN was scheduled to broadcast Florida State vs. Boise State from Jacksonville at 6:00 PM CT on Saturday. But thanks to the impending arrival of Hurricane Dorian, that game has been moved to Tallahassee at 11 AM.

This left ESPN needing to fill an open time slot, and with Vanderbilt-Georgia already scheduled for 6:30, it’s now moved from the SEC Network to ESPN. That probably won’t affect most viewers, but there are going to be some people who get ESPN but not the SEC Network, so it’s potentially a bigger audience for the Commodores’ first game of the season.
