CBS released its schedule of SEC Football games for the 2015 season today. The schedule is still incomplete, of course, but it does include the first three weeks of the season which begins on September 5th with the Chick Fil-A Kickoff Game between the Auburn Tigers vs Louisville Cardinals. This marks the first time CBS has broadcast the annual game from Atlanta’s Georgia Dome. Since it’s inception, the game has always been televised by ESPN or ABC. This also marks the first time CBS has aired SEC games in the first two weeks of the season.
In addition to week one, Auburn is already slated for CBS in week three when it travels to Baton Rouge to face the LSU Tigers. The Cocktail Party between Georgia and Florida is slated for Halloween. Arkansas and Missouri take their usual spot the day after Thanksgiving. Both teams could still have lots to play for at that time.
Other games that are not scheduled as of yet, but are very likely to be on CBS include: Sept. 26 – Tennessee at Florida. Oct. 3 – Alabama at Georgia. Oct. 10 – Georgia at Tennessee. Oct. 17 – Alabama at Texas A&M. Oct. 24 – Texas A&M at Ole Miss. Nov. 7 (Double header) – South Carolina at Tennessee and LSU at Alabama. Nov. 14 (Doubleheader) – Georgia at Auburn and Alabama at Mississippi State. Nov. 21 – Tennessee at Missouri. Nov. 28 – Iron Bowl.
Again, these games I have listed above are just my prediction of what game will be shown on CBS that particular week. This could change depending on timing, team record and ranking, and if a team has already had its maximum amount of appearances. An example of that was last year’s Iron Bowl. CBS, was not allowed to televise the Auburn at Alabama game due to the Tide already appearing on the SEC Game of the Week the maximum number of 5 times. Thus, sending the game to ESPN.
