I am surprised that there is only going to be the one prime time game. And one SEC doubleheader.

I do like the idea of getting up at 6 a.m. PDT and getting to watch football though. Especially since my team (MSU) opens on Friday night. It will be great to have a quadruple header on the various networks. Too bad Hawaii is on the road that day. 5 games would be just awesome.

the reason cbs only has 1 primetime slot for 2012 season is because of last year when they made a deal with espn to let them show a 2nd primetime game that featured alabama vs lsu even though it was supposed to be espn that was to get the game so espn will get another selection from cbs this year because that.

If there’s only going to be one SEC prime-time game all season, it might as well be Alabama @ LSU in Baton Rouge. It’s the rematch of the BCS National Championship Game of January 9 of this year (2012). The winner of the November 3 contest could possibly be playing in Atlanta four weeks later in the SEC Championship Game. But, the SEC West Division is not an easy one to pick. But, I think it will be between Auburn, Arkansas, Alabama and LSU in a close race.

There is 3 doubleheaders Kevin … Oct. 6th Nov. 3rd and Nov. 10th also Kevin do we know if and/or when FOX let out there 2012 College Football Schedule??

BC was talking about SEC doubleheaders. There are two of those but three doubleheaders overall. Oct. 6 is Navy at Air Force followed by an SEC game.

Get this biased Florida announcer of the the tv. I don’t know his name but I’m watching the Florida South Carolina game and this guy sucks.

SEC Championship game scheduled at 4pm?????????????????????? CBS Have you heard the term “PRIME TIME”!!!!!!! Fire somebody NOW!!!!!
