SEC games will air on ESPN+ for the first time ever in 2021
If you missed the big news out of the Southeastern Conference on Thursday, the league has revealed the kickoff times and television schedule for the first three weeks of the 2021 football season.
While there are several marquee nationally televised games taking place during the first three weeks of the season, the league also feasts on cupcake matchups during this time.
