Alabama-LSU set for 8 p.m. ET kickoff

CBS officially announced Wednesday that the Nov. 3 Alabama-LSU game this season in Baton Rouge, La., will kick off at 8 p.m. ET.

When the Alabama-LSU game in Tuscaloosa last season was moved to a night game, part of the agreement was that this season's game in Baton Rouge would also be a night game. LSU went the entire season last year without playing a home SEC game at night.

CBS will televise a doubleheader on Nov. 3. The first game that day will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET. There will also be a CBS doubleheader the next weekend on Nov. 10. The first game is scheduled for noon ET and the second game for 3:30 p.m. ET.

The Florida-Georgia game on Oct. 27 in Jacksonville, Fla., has already been set for a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff on CBS, while the LSU at Arkansas contest on Nov. 23 (the Friday after Thanksgiving) will be a 2:30 p.m. ET kickoff on CBS.

CBS will also televise the SEC championship game on Dec. 1 from Atlanta. That's scheduled for a 4 p.m. ET kickoff.
