Auburn-Arkansas kickoff to be decided next week

The game time for Auburn and Arkansas' Oct. 16 matchup at Jordan-Hare Stadium won't be decided until next Sunday or Monday.

CBS elected to use its six-day option for choosing football games that weekend. That means the Auburn-Arkansas game will be televised at 2:30 p.m. CT by CBS, at 5 p.m. by ESPN2, at 6 p.m. by ESPNU or at 8 p.m. by ESPN2.

The other games under consideration that weekend by CBS are Mississippi State at Florida and South Carolina at Kentucky. Ole Miss at Alabama is the other SEC game.

CBS is a joke.

I agree, Crowns. CBS is the most annoying network to televise a game. They go to commercial at every opportunity. And that freakin "musical" theme is so repetitive. Mute the audio and catch the radio broadcast. Ahhh, much better.

CBS wil air Ole Miss and Ala 2;30

Their love affair with UF has been replaced with bammer

tptoomers said...

the love affair was with tebow, not florida, but cbs's real love is alabama. Vern Lundquist is more of an alabama homer than finescum, he is just has a steady audience and doesnt have to try so hard. I guarantee he has a picture of bear bryant in his house.

At least that means we won't have to hear Danielson and Lundquist call our game, even if Auburn's chosen. I'd be perfectly happy to never hear them call another Auburn game again.

/Still haven't forgiven them for Cranking Dat Soulja Boi in '07

The 07 UGA game did suck

i for one really hope its bama and ole miss... its hard for me to choose between bowhunting and watching the tigers. that 8 oclock kickoff is just right.

CBS broadcast sux. I hope they pick someone else.

CBS stinks. Lundquist and Danielson are horrible in the booth, and the cameras often move to show a spot on the field where there is no action.

ESPN, here we come!

You have to admit though, the CBS on SEC theme music is pretty catchy!

Given the options, it's a near certainty that the AU/Arky game will be the 2:30 featured game.

I don't like the announcers either and I'd rather make Arkansas sit around all day, but the national exposure from the 2:30 feature game is important.

This is terrible. We play great at night. Arkansas at home during the day is like a recipe for disaster... with the exception of 2004, I have bad memories of that game. 25-22 in 2008; 27-10 in 2006; 38-17 in 2002 ... I don't like being the 2:30 at all! Good thing I will be at the game and not have to deal with those A$$ Clowns Verne and Gary. I hate those guys and CBS.

Gary Danielson doesn't bother me much.

Verne seems like a nice guy, but I greatly prefer to have another announcer calling the AU game.

I sure do miss Ron Franklin.
