I don’t understand why SEC would not put a quality game at the noon timeslot. Little competiton and it gives a game a little more attention. Swap South Carolina’s game with Georgia/Arkansas and its good games all day long.

I absolutely agree. GameDay ends and it feels like all the 12pm games are duds. We usually get 3-4 games that are terrible options where I am.

That said, I understand that being a fan that used to love going to games….the 12pm slot is significantly less preferred.

Does anyone know that the 8 PM ET game on ESPN News is?
On the ESPN TV schedule, it’s listed as “Primetime Football”, but it doesn’t say which game it is.
I couldn’t find an 8 PM ESPNN game looking through each game that week.
