SEC Network to re-air 12 UGA football games in its first two weeks
The new SEC Network is set to launch on Thursday, August 14 at 6pm ET with the studio show SEC Now.
Each year, the 24/7 SEC Network will televise “approximately 45 SEC football games, more than 100 men’s basketball games, 60 women’s basketball games, 75 baseball games, and events from across the SEC’s 21 sports.”
One game on the 2014 UGA football schedule is already slated for the SEC Network — vs. Troy on Saturday, Sept. 20 at noon ET.
An added bonus of the SEC Network will be the number of classic football games that will be re-aired. In it’s first two weeks on the air, the SEC Network will broadcast 12 UGA football games.
Two of those games are from the 2007 season — the Auburn “Blackout” game and the Florida “Celebration” game. Below are the 12 games set for broadcast:
