AUBURN, Ala. — CBS has decided to wait until Sunday to announce which game it will televise Nov. 12, leaving the kickoff time for the Auburn-Georgia very much up in the air.
The Southeastern Conference announced Monday that CBS has elected to use its six-day window to pick a game for its primary 2:30 p.m. time slot. That means Auburn-Georgia in Athens could kick off as early as 11 a.m. and as late as 6:30 p.m., Auburn time.
The games left in limbo are Auburn-Georgia, LSU-Arkansas, South Carolina-Florida, Kentucky-Tennessee and Ole Miss-Texas A&M. CBS has first choice for its 2:30 p.m. game, followed by ESPN at 6 p.m., CBS at 11 a.m., and the SEC Network at 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Two games have designated times: Alabama-Mississippi State at 11 a.m. on ESPN and Vanderbilt-Missouri at 2:30 p.m. on the SEC Network.
Auburn has business before then. The Tigers will play host to Vanderbilt at 11 a.m. Saturday in Jordan-Hare Stadium in a game that will be televised by ESPN. Auburn is 6-2 overall and 4-1 in the Southeastern Conference. Vanderbilt is 4-4 overall and 1-3 in the league.
Auburn comes into that game after enjoying a jump in the polls Sunday after beating Ole Miss 40-29 over the weekend. The Tigers are 11th in the AP poll, 12th in the coaches poll.
