"What time is the ______ game?" Here is your answer (SEC tv selection order)

With all of the threads asking, "What time is the ______ game?" I figured I would put the selection process on here.

1) Game times are announced 12 days prior to kickoff. 2 times per year per school, the networks may exercise a 6 day option, where they may wait until 6 days before kickoff before announcing the time and channel of the game.

2) CBS gets first pick every week for their 3:30/2:30c time slot. No other network may broadcast a game where an SEC team is the home team during this time slot.

3) CBS gets 2 doubleheaders per year. One at 3:30/8:00pm (2:30/7:00pm central) and one at Noon/3:30. No network may broadcast a game where an SEC team is the home team while CBS uses it's 8pm game. However, the Noon time slot is not exclusive to CBS during that doubleheader.

4) No team may be on CBS more then 5 times in one season.

EDIT INSERT- a team may have 6 games on CBS up to 4 times during the length of the CBS contract.

5) ESPN gets to pick the next 2 games. They may choose to start these games either before 1:30/12:30c or after 7/6c as to not conflict with the CBS broadcast.

6) SEC Network gets next pick for their for their 12/11c game.

7) ESPNU gets to pick the next game. They may choose to start the games either before 1:30/12:30c or after 7/6c as to not conflict with the CBS broadcast.

8) Regional networks get the remaining games. They may choose to start the games either before 1:30/12:30c or after 7/6c as to not conflict with the CBS broadcast.

9) Each team may elect to show 1 out of conference game per year on Pay-Per-View.

10) If an SEC team plays against an out of conference opponent, the home team's TV contract prevails.

11) Neutral site SEC games (such as Georgia-Florida in Jacksonville) are subject to the SEC TV rules.

12) Neutral site non-SEC games games (such as the Cowboy Classic or the Chick-fil-a kickoff game) have their own TV contracts and are not subject to these rules.

*Correction 1) Games on CBS begin on week 3. With no games on CBS in weeks 1 and 2, other stations may use what would normally be a conflicting time slot.



Disclaimer: I was not able to find one website that had a straight forward listing. This is a compilation of several different sources and I'm too lazy to put all the links.

Also, I might be slightly off so feel free to correct me.

That's why I did it. Maybe, just maybe, we can stop some of those threads from cluttering up this place.

Updated title so that the people who need this thread don't skim over it by accident. Really trying to be idiot proof here.....however the rant never ceases to amaze me.

Is it still allowed to discuss and ask other's opinion on when they think a particular game will be? Or is this the last game time thread?

Because I'm coming from out of state for the Auburn game and will be entertaining customers. It would be helpful if I could get a feel of when the game is expected to kickoff.

I got nothing against discussing stuff, but the 4th time in a week that we get a "what time is the auburn game" thread, I figured it was time to clear everything up.

Other rantards may not be so nice.
