2019 “SEC ON CBS” BROADCAST SCHEDULE WINDOWS ANNOUNCED, FEATURING COLLEGE FOOTBALL’S HIGHEST-RATED TELEVISION PACKAGE

Schedule Kicks Off Sept. 14 as Defending SEC Champion Alabama Visits South Carolina

CBS Sports, home to college football’s highest-rated television package, the SEC ON CBS, has announced its 2019 college football schedule broadcast windows and select games. CBS again will showcase the best games from the best conference with the “SEC Game of the Week.”

The SEC ON CBS has been the highest-rated regular-season college football package on any network for 10 consecutive seasons.

The 2019 SEC ON CBS schedule, the Network’s 19th consecutive season providing national coverage of Southeastern Conference football, presents a total of 16 games, including the SEC Championship on Saturday, Dec. 7 (4:00 PM, ET). Last year’s SEC Championship between Alabama and Georgia was the most-watched and highest-rated regular-season college football game on any network in seven years and the second-most-watched SEC Championship ever in 26 years since the game debuted in 1992.

This year’s schedule kicks off on Sept. 14 with reigning SEC Champion Alabama visiting South Carolina at Williams-Brice Stadium. The annual rivalry game between defending SEC East Champion Georgia and Florida will take place on Nov. 2. In addition to the traditional Saturday SEC Game of the Week at its familiar 3:30 PM, ET time slot, there will be a primetime doubleheader on Sept. 21 and an afternoon doubleheader on Nov. 16.

The CBS college football schedule also will feature the annual Army-Navy classic (Dec. 14) and the Hyundai Sun Bowl (Dec. 31).

Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson, along with reporter Jamie Erdahl, are CBS Sports’ lead college football announce team.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL TODAY, the Network’s pre-game, halftime and post-game studio show, returns with host Adam Zucker alongside analysts Rick Neuheisel and Brian Jones.

CBS Sports’ coverage of the entire 2019 SEC ON CBS football season will be available to stream live via the CBS All Access subscription service, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com, the CBS Sports app, and CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news service.
