It has been announced that this Saturday’s Florida-South Carolina game will be the 3:30 CBS game. It is not surprising considering the other games that CBS reserved for telecast were Georgia-Auburn and Alabama-Mississippi State. UGA-AU will go to Raycom, while I would assume Bama-Miss St. will head over to some flavor of ESPN network.
It will be Steve Spurrier’s second trip back to Gainesville as the Gamecocks’ head coach, and Urban Meyer is calling it a rivalry game. I’m not sure why he calls it a rivalry, but I guess it comes from Spurrier’s presence and the fact he lost this game his first year. It’ll be interesting to see if he still calls it a rivalry after Steve heads to the golf course for good.
Either way, this is good for viewers but bad for those attending the game as they will have to sit through CBS’s soul devouring TV timeouts, the longest in the industry.
