Ah, yes, the SEC Network’s mid-afternoon dead zone.

NCAA Football: Clemson at South Carolina Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Vanderbilt Commodores take on the South Carolina Gamecocks on October 16, and since the SEC Network’s launch, the network has frequently stuck its least attractive games in the 3 PM time slot opposite the CBS game. So that, of course, is where Vanderbilt-South Carolina goes, because why wouldn’t it?

It only feels like this is a 3 PM game every year. (It’s only a 3 PM game when it’s not a Thursday night game. Thursday night games against South Carolina, by the way, should make a comeback.)

In other news, wait, LSU is playing a home game at 11 AM? Yeah, that’s right: CBS is electing to televise a morning game and it will either be Florida at LSU or Auburn at Arkansas. The 2:30 CBS game is Kentucky-Georgia, which is something that will come as a shock to longtime fans of the SEC. Alabama-Mississippi State and Ole Miss-Tennessee are the night games.
