Three SEC vs. Big 12 game times announced

NCAA Football: Southern Methodist at Baylor

The Big 12 finalized TV selections and designations for the first three weeks of the season, and included were three games against SEC teams that didn’t have previously scheduled game times.

September 13th features two SEC-Big 12 matchups. Arkansas at Texas Tech will start at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be seen on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. Tennessee at Oklahoma will start at 8:00 p.m. ET and will also be shown on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. Texas Tech is coming off of an 8-5 season, while Oklahoma is one of the most talked about teams in college football entering 2014, along with being a favorite for the College Football Playoff. Both teams will have their hands full.

Auburn at Kansas State will be a Thursday night contest on September 18th starting at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. The Wildcats are coming off an 8-5 season that ended with a win over Michigan in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.

The SEC finished 3-2 against Big 12 teams in 2013.

    I hope the Big 12 fans are reading this because I haven’t pulled any punches with them for about three years. The K-State-Snyder vs. Auburn game will be one of the most interesting non-SEC games of all time. I expect Auburn to win but K-State will pull out all the stops and max out their roster talent. Any time a team does this the opponent better be treating the game like a NC effort is required. Tennessee at Oklahoma will be two programs making comebacks, but Oklahoma has been clawing their way back for a longer time with the same head coach. Tennessee has had better recruiting success, all eyes will be on the coach staff performance of both teams. I will say this, there is no coach more fun to beat, and we’ve had a lot of fun with that concept in recent years. Don’t get me wrong, I like the B.S.+ OK staff. It’s just that they had so much talent that they got a little more credit than they deserved for way too long. Interesting to have Tennessee avenging Alabama don’t you think? Then there is TTech and Arkansas. The rock star and the anti-rock star coaching staff. This is a bigger opportunity for Ark than it is for Tech, but both programs could get a gravity sling shot out of this game.
