Kickoff Set For Arkansas, Auburn, Alabama And Florida

Georgia’s first two football games this fall — the season opener September 26th at Arkansas and the home opener vs. Auburn on October 3rd, were among an early round of selections made Tuesday by the ESPN networks, according to an announcement by the SEC office.

The Dawgs’ contest in Fayetteville in slated for a 4:00 p.m. (ET) kickoff and will be televised by the SEC Network. The following Saturday, Georgia will play Auburn on Dooley Field at Sanford Stadium in a 7:30 p.m. (ET) kickoff on ESPN.

Two other games, October 17th at Alabama, slated for a prime-time, 8:00 p.m. (ET) kickoff and November 7th vs. Florida in Jacksonville at its traditional time of 3:30 p.m. (ET), were selected as part of the 7-game package of SEC games carried nationally by CBS in the season, according to an announcement by the league office Tuesday.

Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson, along with reporter Jamie Erdahl, are CBS Sports’ lead college football announce team. Gene Steratore will again serve as the Rules Analyst.

Kickoff times and networks were announced for the first two weeks of the SEC football season and selected games for three other Saturdays later in the year. Given the unique circumstances of this season, the SEC requested that its television partners make advanced game selections where possible prior to the start of the season to assist the Conference and schools with planning and logistics.

For any games not chosen before the start of the season, the normal 12 or six-day selection process will be used during the season.

The 2020 SEC football season will be comprised of a 10-game Conference-only schedule and the SEC Football Championship Game will be played December 19th at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, rescheduled from the original date of December 5th. The schedule will include one mid-season open date for each school and an open date on December 12th for all schools.
