The only SEC games locked into time slots so far are Alabama-South Carolina at 3:30 p.m. Eastern in Week 3 of the regular season and Florida-Georgia in Jacksonville on Nov. 2 at 3:30 p.m. Other games will be chosen throughout the season, six to 12 days before they are played. CBS’ contract with the SEC gives the network first choice of games to air each week.
