As the SEC rolls out all kinds of information today and the rest of this week during the blitz known as SEC Media Days, here's a quick look at the TV schedule that was previously announced for the first few weeks of the season. The good news is that the move to the SEC from the Big 12 is likely to pay off in a major way for exposure for the Tigers, and that much is clear before the season even really gets moving with two national appearances on ESPN2 in the first three weeks of the season.
The Tigers' season starts with a home visit from Southeastern Louisiana. It's a game only available on pay-per-view that should be a wash. However, things get really interesting in week two. The Tigers are introduced to SEC play when Georgia visits for the first ever conference game for Mizzou in a game at Faurot Field that will be broadcast on ESPN2.
Week three brings even more coverage when a visit from Arizona State also brings ESPN2 coverage as well. A solid showing in one or both of those games could reap big rewards for Gary Pinkel's team.
This is the world that the Tigers wanted and now they'll be front and center most weeks of the season in their new conference home.
