2017 SEC on CBS Broadcast Schedule Announced
The college football season is still three months away but SEC fans got their first look at the upcoming CBS broadcast schedule this week.
The network announced four regular season SEC games they've already picked for the 2017 season and revealed three doubleheader windows in November. The 'SEC Game of the Week' schedule kicks off with TCU and Arkansas on September 9 as Brad Nessler makes his CBS debut alongside Gary Danielson.
The schedule will also include SEC East rivalries Tennessee versus Florida and the game formerly known as a cocktail party, Georgia versus Florida. The only other game CBS locked in is Missouri at Arkansas on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Everything else will be decided on a week-to-week basis throughout the season.
Alabama should find its way into a number of these timeslots in 2017, and the primetime doubleheader on November 4 means that the LSU matchup in Tuscaloosa has a good chance to be played at night.
