Broadcast teams for SEC's Week 2 games have been set
As the SEC gets set to play its second slate of games this week, the broadcast teams calling the games have been set.
With ESPN’s “College GameDay” set to air live from Athens ahead of the Auburn-Georgia game, Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Allison Williams will be on hand for the game at Sanford Stadium.
Some of the storylines in that game will be Georgia’s quarterbacks, including D’Wan Mathis and Stetson Bennett, and if JT Daniels is cleared medically and gets on the field. Georgia has won three straight in the “Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry” which dates back to a regular-season loss during the 2017 season. The rivals normally meet in November, however, the game was already moved up before the revised conference-only slate put it this week. It’s the first time the Tigers and Bulldogs have played a regular season game outside of November since 1936 when they met in Columbus, Georgia.
The only other game involving 1-0 teams is the marquee “SEC on CBS” game involving the Aggies and Crimson Tide. Alabama has won seven straight in that series, and this is an early test to see if the Crimson Tide, which have been picked to win the SEC West, will be challenged early on in the season.
