In collegiate athletics, the almighty dollar seems to rule all things, and that is one of the worst-kept secrets in all of sports. With that in mind, TV (and its revenue) sets the stage for most college football games, and on Monday, the SEC announced its full pairings and times for November 23rd.

Listed among the games is a time change (or time announcement) for the game between Georgia and Kentucky. The Bulldogs will now host the game beginning at 7:00 PM, and with that comes national TV exposure on either ESPN2 or ESPNU.
In the grand scheme, this isn’t an enormous announcement, but it does solidify some additional exposure for the program. Kentucky currently stands at 2-7 overall and 0-5 in the SEC, meaning that the eyes of the region wouldn’t exactly be fixated on this particular match-up.
National television is never a bad thing, and in the midst of the ever competitive recruiting scene, a presumptive blow-out victory over a conference opponent can do wonders for a program’s image. Stay tuned for future updates on exactly where to find this game on your television dial.
