Georgia’s September 29th game against Tennessee will mark the Dawgs’ first 3:30 CBS appearance of the season. It’s not a huge surprise as there aren’t many other interesting SEC games beyond Arkansas-Texas A&M, and there’s not much shine left on that one.
Looking ahead a week to the South Carolina game, it’s more likely that CBS will choose LSU @ Florida. Though the Georgia @ South Carolina game is a big one, Florida-LSU will likely feature a cross-divisional battle of undefeated teams. Florida has Kentucky and a bye week, and LSU faces Auburn and Towson over the next two weeks. Georgia and South Carolina will have each had an appearance on CBS, and it seems unlikely that CBS would leave a popular highly-ranked team like LSU on the shelf for another week even if the Dawgs and Gamecocks also remain undefeated.
A big matchup like Georgia-South Carolina won’t fall to the 12:21 slot, so we might be looking at the 4th night game in 5 weeks for the trip to the other Columbia.
