SEC Network announces new twist on league's 'Takeover' broadcast schedule for 2019

You know the college football season is close when the SEC Network begins its “Takeover” broadcast schedule.

In previous years, the network has turned each day into a specific school’s day, showing classic games and moments that fans love to relive heading into the college football season. However, this year, in celebration of the network’s fifth year, SEC Network will be taken over by the people that work there.

Considering most of the faces at the network graduated from schools within the league, SEC Network is allowing its on-air personalities to select the programming for the week.

Here is a graphic of what’s to come for the 2019 edition of the SEC Network’s “Takeover” event:

Here is a detailed breakdown of the 2019 edition of the SEC Network’s “takeover” schedule courtesy of ESPN:
