Kickoff time has not yet been set for the “Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.”
The Georgia Bulldogs (4-4, 2-4 SEC) face the Auburn Tigers (6-2, 4-1) on Saturday Nov. 12 in Athens, Ga. That much we know for sure.
But the particulars on a kickoff time and television network are on hold after CBS elected to use a six-day selection for games of November 12.
Per Georgia athletics, the Bulldogs will find out kickoff and television information after the games of November 5:
Therefore the following games will be held for selection by CBS, ESPN and the SEC Network on a six day selection: LSU at Arkansas, Auburn at Georgia, South Carolina at Florida, Kentucky at Tennessee and Ole Miss at Texas A&M. The order of selection for these games is as follows: CBS has first selection for the 3:30 ET window; ESPN has second selection for the 7:00 pm ET window; CBS has third selection for the Noon ET window, SEC Network has fourth and fifth selections for the Noon ET and 7:30 ET windows. These selections will be made after games of November 5.
Georgia is tied for fourth place in the SEC East following a loss to Florida in the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.” This Saturday, the Bulldogs have a tough test against the surprise team of the SEC, the Kentucky Wildcats, in Lexington, Ky.
Auburn has experienced a resurgence this year after a couple early losses that look much better in retrospect (Clemson, Texas A&M) than they did at the time. The Tigers are in the midst of a five-game winning streak that includes victories over LSU, Arkansas and Ole Miss. Another inter-divisional game, against Vanderbilt, is on the slate for the Tigers before they travel to Athens.
The Tigers have an opportunity to knot up the all-time series with a win on Nov. 12. As of now, Georgia leads with a 56-55-8 record.
