AUBURN, Ala. -- Ole Miss will visit Auburn on Oct. 5. That much we know. But the SEC and the TV networks didn't choose a time or network for the game in Jordan-Hare Stadium on Monday. 

Auburn did choose a time for homecoming against Western Carolina on Oct. 12, however. It'll be 1 p.m. and offered as a pay-for-view telecast. 

CBS is exercising its six-day window this week to choose which game it wants Oct. 5 for the 2:30 p.m. slot. That has left four games in limbo. The network will choose after this weekend's games. 

Ole Miss-Auburn will either be at 2:30 on CBS, 6 p.m. on ESPN, 6 p.m. on ESPN2, 6 p.m. on ESPNU. Other games in the mix are Arkansas-Florida, Georgia-Tennessee and LSU-Mississippi State.

Other SEC games on Oct. 5 are Georgia State at Alabama, at 11:21 a.m. on the SEC Network; Kentucky at South Carolina, at 6:30 p.m. on Fox Sports South: and Missouri at Vanderbilt at 6:30 p.m. on CSS.

Auburn's first four games have all been at night. 

The decision will be made over this weekend. Auburn has time to think about it. The Tigers are off this week. The Tigers are taking today off before returning to work Tuesday with a 3-1 record.
