Earlier this week, The Big Lead reported the SEC Network, coming in August 2014, will have its game-day show. The report was confirmed at SEC Championship media day, and the new show is called ‘SEC Nation’.
It will be a two-hour live road show every Saturday on campus from 10:00 AM until 12:00 PM. ESPN host Joe Tessitore will host the show every Saturday.
SEC Nation will be in Columbia for Texas A&M/S.C. on Aug. 28, and in Auburn for Arkansas/Auburn on Aug. 30.
