When are the game times usually announced, typically the week before?

I will bringing my family down from Kentucky and it'll be my son's 1st game (8 years old) and my wife and daughter's 2nd game. I'd love for it to be the 3:30 game or even a night game but would hate for it to be a Noon game. What would the chances of that be? Sorry I'm not very familiar with how they schedule the SEC games.

2 weeks before. If both are undefeated or both have one loss, you can probably count on a night game. If both suffer a couple or three losses, probably leaning towards noon.

Monday the week before, or 12 days before.

Almost certainly won't be a 3:30 game as for some reason that weekend appears to be locked up by UGA-UF in Jax.

Other games that week:

Auburn-Arky
USC-Mizzou
Ole Miss-A&M

So we should be the 1st or 2nd most attractive game that week after the cocktail party. I would say 7-7:30 on ESPN or the Deuce.

If Tennessee and Kentucky are 7-0 going into the game i could see a 3:30 pm kickoff on CBS but if if it's a 6-1 or 7-0 Tennessee against a 6-1,5-2 or 4-3 Kentucky team i could see a 7:00 pm kickoff on ESPN or the SEC Network.

I think I'd prefer to have the 7-7:30 over the 3:30 game anyways. Since I have a 3 hour drive, I'd like to get down there in the am and spend the afternoon seeing the Vol Walk and all of the other fun stuff before the game. My daughter is in the band so I want her to see them.

If I'm not mistaken the Georgia/ Florida game is always the CBS game of the week.

Make sure you pack some ear plugs for the youngsters.

While the true game time will not be announced until a couple of weeks before, I would say the odds are we will not be playing the noon game.

Face it, offense sells and we don't have Pruitt on the sidelines any more. Going by that, we are one of the sexiest teams out there right now. That's not even considering the size of our fanbase in general

Chances are both teams will be ranked in the T25 and generally you don't see SEC matchups like that at noon. Putting their big game on at noon is a Little 10 thing to do.

We had a bunch of 12 pm games early last year because everybody thought we would suck.

Our only potential noon games left on the schedule would be Vandy and MTSU. Maybe Mizzu or SC if they can't get their heads outta their butts
