Television Schedules for First Three Weeks of SEC Football Released

The Rebel date against the Longhorns just got a bit more interesting.

This is just yet another sign as to how much closer we are to the start of football season, as the conference has released the television schedule for the first three weeks of SEC football. You can view the full schedule by heading on over to SSECSports.com if you'd like, but the details impertinent to Ole Miss are as follows:

  • September 1 - Central Arkansas at Ole Miss - 6PM Central on Pay Per View*
  • September 8 - UTEP at Ole Miss - 6PM Central on FSN
  • September 15 - Texas at Ole Miss - 8:15PM Central on ESPN

That's right; we start the season with three straight night games, one of which is on ESPN during prime time television.

You noticed that Texas time, didn't you? You began thinking of more-elaborate-than-usual tailgates, a liquored up Vaught-Hemingway crowd, and the possibility of ESPN's College Game Day, didn't you? Of course you did, and while those are things about which I too can't help but think (although the likelihood of Game Day is probably zilch), what really excites me about that date is the possibility of my attendance. I, and many others, can literally fly into Jackson or Memphis the day of the game and still be in Oxford with hours to spare.

This definitely more than makes up for the poor scheduling of the Tulane game. That's for damn sure.

*I think games listed as being on Pay Per View are available for no extra charge if your cable provider has WatchESPN.com. This isn't something of which I'm 100% certain, but anyway, if you don't have access to WatchESPN.com, then you're seriously missing out (I have Verizon FiOS hooked up to my XBox, so I can, through XBox Live, watch all sorts of obscure ESPN broadcasts in high definition).
