SEC football schedule 2024: TV windows set for entire season

By Kevin Kelley -

The SEC has revealed the schedule of kickoff time windows for all remaining conference controlled football games in 2024, according to an announcement on Tuesday.

The league previously announced the early season kickoff times and TV schedule, plus select special date games on May 30. Combined with the announcement today, every SEC-controlled football game in 2024 now has a kickoff time or a window set.

Games selected for the early window will start from 12:00pm ET to 1:00pm ET, while the afternoon window games will kickoff between 3:30pm ET and 4:30pm ET.

Night games have a slightly larger window, with kickoff times anywhere from 6:00pm ET to 8:00pm ET. A few contests, however, were tagged as flex games and could change from the afternoon to evening window and vice versa.

Designating windows for all games after Week 3 prior to the start of the season is a new benefit of the new conference rights agreement between the Southeastern Conference and ESPN kicking off this fall.

The SEC football schedule in 2024 is scheduled to kickoff on Thursday, Aug. 29 with two league members hosting FCS opponents. The Arkansas Razorbacks welcome Arkansas-Pine Bluff at 7:30pm ET on ESPNU, and then the Missouri Tigers entertain Murray State at 8:00pm ET on the SEC Network.

The Oklahoma Sooners, new to the SEC this season, are featured in a primetime matchup at home on Friday, Aug. 30 when they host Temple at 7:00pm ET on ESPN.

A full day of SEC action is set for Saturday, Aug. 31, beginning with the Georgia Bulldogs taking on Clemson in the Aflac Kickoff Game in Atlanta, Ga., at noon ET on ABC. Other featured games include Colorado State at Texas (3:30pm ET, ESPN), Miami FL at Florida (3:30pm ET, ABC), and Notre Dame at Texas A&M (7:30pm ET).

On Sunday, Sept. 1, the LSU Tigers will battle the USC Trojans in the Vegas Kickoff Classic in Las Vegas, Nevada, at 7:30pm ET on ABC.

For all listed windows (early, afternoon, night, and flex), the exact start time will be announced no later than six days prior to the date of the game. Check out the complete schedule below:

I am A Fan of SEC having flex on their schedule & My Georgia Bulldogs have five flexibility dates in 2024.

I like to see A&M/UT play regardless of kickoff time on Thanksgiving weekend.

As A Fan of Big Ten Football on CBS I really like the idea that they schedule five games & rest To Be Determined in order get some exciting Big Ten conference games.
