CBS has elected to use its six-day window in selecting the teams it wants to televise on October 1. CBS controls the 3:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. time slots and the station has three games it wants to choose from.
Next Sunday, the station will choose between South Carolina-Auburn, Texas A&M-Arkansas, and Florida-Alabama for its afternoon and primetime slots. The remaining game will kickoff at Noon on ESPN.
By contract, games which are considered SEC home games can not be televised during time slots that oppose the CBS doubleheader. All games that fall under SEC television contracts on the weekend must kickoff between Noon and 1 p.m. EDT.
This week, the Gamecocks will take on Vanderbilt (3-0, 1-0) at 7 p.m. EDT on ESPN2. Auburn hosts Florida Atlantic at 7 p.m. EDT.
