Georgia-Auburn game time decision pushed to Sunday

semerson@macon.comOctober 31, 2011 

We're going to have to wait until Sunday to know the Georgia-Auburn game time.

CBS has opted to take its six-day option on four games on Nov. 12: Auburn at Georgia, Alabama at Mississippi State, Tennessee at Arkansas and Florida at South Carolina.

Three other games were assigned game times: Kentucky at Vanderbilt (12:21 p.m., SEC Network), Western Kentucky at LSU (7 p.m., ESPNU) and Louisiana Tech at Ole Miss (7:30 p.m., CSS).

That leaves four slots:

- Noon on CBS
- 3:30 p.m. on CBS
- 6 p.m. on ESPN2
- 7:45 p.m. on ESPN

CBS appears to be awaiting the outcome of this weekend's key games - LSU at Alabama and South Carolina at Arkansas - to decide whether it should take Georgia-Auburn for one of the prime spots.

The guess here, and it's only a guess, is if Alabama wins and is the nation's No. 1 team, its visit to Mississippi State will warrant one of the CBS slots. And if South Carolina loses, then Georgia-Auburn will likely get another one of those slots, or the prime-time ESPN game, since it will likely be the Bulldogs playing with the division on the line.
