Troy at Ole Miss game set for 11 a.m. kickoff; MSU-Bama up in air

Football stockAs early starts go, Ole Miss fans will have the SEC’s earliest on Nov. 16.

The Nov. 16 Troy game at Ole Miss will kick off at 11 a.m. on ESPNU, the SEC office announced on Monday.

Mississippi State’s home game against Alabama is set for an evening kick – at either 6 p.m. ESPN2 or 6:45 p.m. on ESPN2. That’ll be decided after this weekend’s games.

The 11:21 SEC TV game will be Kentucky at Vanderbilt.

CBS will choose one of two games – Georgia at Auburn or Florida at South Carolina – for its 2:30 p.m. slot. The one that isn’t chosen will fall into the mix with the MSU-Alabama game for pickup by ESPN or ESPN2.

Next Monday, we’ll get the TV times for the next-to-last week of the regular season, including Missouri at Ole Miss, MSU at Arkansas and Texas A&M at LSU.
