The SEC Network, the new national sports network launching August 14 and operated by ESPN, will air a game featuring every football team in the Southeastern Conference within the first four weeks of the 2014 college football season. The first 16 games, released today by the SEC and ESPN, include a home game from all 14 SEC football stadiums.  In addition, eight SEC schools will open their 2014 seasons on the network, including the defending SEC Champion, Auburn, and Arkansas in a conference matchup at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, Aug. 30.


“The fact that the SEC Network will originate a game from every stadium in the conference in the first four weeks of the 2014 season is testament to the depth of coverage fans can expect from the network,” said Mike Slive, SEC commissioner.  “In just the first month of the season, fans that get the network will enjoy all the passion and pageantry of SEC football from 14 of the greatest venues in the world of sports.  This is what the SEC Network is all about.”


Each of the first two weeks features six games. Opening week includes a previously announced Thursday night doubleheader, three games on Saturday and a unique opportunity over Labor Day weekend for a Sunday evening game at Tennessee.


“The network will have a terrific line-up of games over the first four weeks.  The schedule includes quality and depth from across the conference,” said Justin Connolly, ESPN senior vice president, college networks.  “The full breadth of teams and stadiums showcased in the first month alone speaks volumes on the type of programming sports fans should expect on the SEC Network.”


On Saturday, Sept. 6, the SEC Network will showcase six different matchups.   Each of the games will be available to all fans who receive SEC Network.  The games will be televised on either the SEC Network or an overflow channel made available on that Saturday.


Week three is punctuated by an early-season conference match-up between Kentucky and Florida. In week four, the SEC Network will have two yet to be determined matchups to complete the Saturday tripleheader. Television selections for the remaining games in the opening weeks of the season will be announced at a later date.

Southeastern Conference announces format for future football schedules


(courtesy SEC)

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Southeastern Conference on Sunday
announced the format for future football scheduling that is a continuation of
the existing format and adds a strength-of-schedule component that requires all
schools to play an ACC, Big 12, Big Ten or Pac-12 opponent on an annual basis.
The announcement comes after a vote of the league's institutions.

Each SEC team will continue to play eight conference football games per season,
to include six games against division opponents and two games against
non-division opponents.  One of the non-division opponents will be a permanent
annual opponent and the other non-division opponent will rotate each year.

In addition, at least one opponent from the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten or Pac-12 must
be scheduled by each SEC school on an annual basis beginning in 2016, with
assistance from the conference office.

"This has been a thoughtful and deliberative process that has resulted in
maintaining the current format and adds a provision that will bolster our
collective annual non-conference schedule," said Commissioner Mike Slive.
“Critical to maintaining this format is the non-conference opponent factor which
gives us the added strength-of-schedule we were seeking while allowing continued
scheduling flexibility for institutional preferences, and acknowledges that many
of our institutions already play these opponents.

“The concept of strength-of-schedule is based on an entire 12-game schedule, a
combination of both conference games together with non-conference games.  Given
the strength of our conference schedule supplemented by at least one major
non-conference game, our teams will boast of a strong resume’ of opponents each
and every year.”

The announcement is the culmination of a process that began in the spring of
2013 when the SEC presidents and chancellors committed to a review of football
scheduling to be completed in time for the preparation of the 2016 football
schedule with the objective of establishing a format in the best long term
interests of the conference.   Approval of the format came at a special joint
meeting of the presidents and chancellors of each SEC institution and each
conference athletic director held Sunday afternoon in Atlanta.

"We've been working on scheduling formats for an extended period of time and
have considered numerous options," said South Carolina Athletics Director Ray
Tanner. "By a consensus vote of the conference presidents, we have settled on
this format and look forward to beginning a new rivalry with Texas A&M as our
permanent opponent."


“The existing strength of the SEC was certainly a significant factor in the
decision to play eight games,” Slive said.  “In fact, just last year, five of
our schools comprised the top five toughest schedules in the nation according to
the NCAA and nine ranked in the top 20.

“A number of our schools play annual ACC opponents, and recent history shows our
schools are already playing a significant number of strong non-conference
opponents across the country on a home and home basis or in neutral site games.

From 2006 through games scheduled in 2015, SEC teams will have played 132 games
against schools from the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten and Pac-12.   More than half of
the SEC schools have played two or more teams from those conferences in a single
season at least once during that period and several schools have done it in
multiple seasons.

The decision to maintain an eight-game conference schedule allows for a number
of other advantages:

·         A balanced league schedule for all teams – equal home and away
conference games (four home and four away); a nine-game schedule would have
resulted in some teams with five home games and others with four on an annual

·         Accommodates varying institutional non-conference scheduling

·         Allows for marquee neutral site games – the popularity of neutral site
games has grown in recent years, as evidenced by large crowds and significant TV
ratings for those games that feature major intersectional opponents


“Tradition matters in the SEC, and there is no denying that tradition was a
significant factor in this decision because it protects several long-standing
cross-division conference rivalries,” said Slive.  “It has been a hallmark of
the SEC over our history to be able to make continued progress while also
maintaining traditions important to our institutions.”

The decision to maintain a permanent non-division opponent also presents other

·         Creates annual cross-division rivalries that otherwise would not be
annual games

·         Provides each team with a traditional opponent for the final weekend
of the season

The permanent non-division opponents are as listed below:

·         Alabama (west) vs. Tennessee (east)
·         Arkansas (west) vs. Missouri (east)
·         Auburn (west) vs. Georgia (east)
·         LSU (west) vs. Florida (east)
·         Ole Miss (west) vs. Vanderbilt (east)
·         Mississippi State (west) vs. Kentucky (east)
·         Texas A&M (west) vs. South Carolina (east)





UC Football coach Tommy Tuberville and alumnus JK Schaffer to team up in Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge April 27-29

CINCINNATI – University of Cincinnati Football Head Coach Tommy Tuberville and former standout linebacker JK Schaffer are part of an 11-team field of NCAA head coaches and celebrity alumni set to compete in the eighth annual Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament.

Top national coaches, including Tuberville, Frank Beamer, Nick Saban, Steve Spurrier and many others will hit the links, all vying for their share of the $520,000 scholarship purse for their universities.

The nation’s premier head coach and celebrity golf event will be held April 27-29 at the Reynolds Plantation resort on Lake Oconee outside Atlanta. In the past seven years, the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge has provided more than $4 million in scholarship and charitable contributions.

Tuberville is entering his second year at Cincinnati, leading the Bearcats to a 9-4 mark and a Belk Bowl appearance in 2013. The 18-year veteran coach came to UC after successful stints at Texas Tech, Auburn and Ole Miss.

Schaffer, a Cincinnati native (LaSalle HS), is in his third year as a linebacker with the Cincinnati Bengals. The 2012 UC grad was a two-time All-Big East selection, the league’s 2012 scholar-athlete of the year and a member of three conference championship teams. In 50 games, he totaled 337 tackles, nine sacks, 28 tackles-for-loss, seven INTs, six forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and 15 passes defensed and is one of four players in Big East history to record 100 or more tackles in three different seasons.

“This event is really a celebration of college football, with National Coaches of the Year, Heisman Trophy winners and celebrity alumni, all representing their universities in a competition for scholarship money for their schools,” said Gary Stokan, president and CEO of the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

The Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge main event features pairings that include a university head coach and a celebrity or former athlete from the same school competing in a scramble format against other university teams from around the country. The tournament will be broadcast by ESPN in August and December. Specific dates will be announced this summer.

Over the three-day event, several tournament rounds will be played in addition to the televised round of coaches and celebrities. The field of competitors for the featured round is scheduled to include three former winning teams including Paul Johnson and Jon Barry of Georgia Tech (2011, 2012), Steve Spurrier and Sterling Sharpe from South Carolina (2008, 2009), and Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer (2007).

South Carolina Gamecocks Football: Black controls Garnet in Spring Game, 28-10

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The Black team topped the Garnet for the second-straight season in South Carolina’s annual Garnet and Black Spring game Saturday afternoon at Williams-Brice Stadium. The Dylan Thompson-led Black squad posted 21 points in the first half en route to the 28-10 victory in front of 36,412 fans. Offense was the early draw as each side drove for a touchdown. Led by Thompson at quarterback, the Black team capped a methodical 10-play, four-minute drive with a Brandon Wilds three-yard run with 7:42 to go in the first half. Just 3:22 later, freshman signal caller Connor Mitch led Garnet on a 70-yard drive to the end zone, highlighted by a 37-yard pass to Shon Carson. Mitch ran or threw on five of the eight plays that knotted the game at 7-7 with 4:20 to play in the quarter. Thompson answered with a 70-yard drive the opened with a 34-yard completion to Jerell Adams and closed with a four-yard touchdown run by David Williams for a 14-7 Black lead. Mitch’s Garnet side struggled on then next drive, which ended three plays in when Jody Fuller fumbled after a 28-yard reception with Chris Moody recovering at his own 31-yard line just at the end of the quarter. Black opened the second quarter with sophomore quarterback Perry Orth throwing an interception, but the defense held Garnet to just a 48-yard field goal attempt from Elliott Fry, who missed it wide right. Black could not convert the opportunity, though, and Garnet took over again with 7:15 left in the half. The drive started with three promising plays, all over 13 yards, but Garnet had to settle for a 22-yard field goal from Fry, though, to cut the Black lead to 14-10 with 3:24 left in the half. Once more, the Black team had the answer. With Thompson back under center, the side needed just 2:59 to go 60 yards for a touchdown. After David Williams rushed for 15 yards on two plays, Thompson found South Carolina women’s basketball head coach Dawn Staley in the end zone for a 30-yard reception that gave Black a 21-10 advantage just before halftime. The running clock in the second half kept things moving quickly. With freshmen quarterbacks Mitch and Orth calling the shots for the Garnet and Black teams, respectively, neither team scored in the third quarter. Orth had the Black team driving late in the period, though. Darius Paulk ran for 13 yards on a pair of rushes, and two plays later Orth found Matrick Belton in the end zone with a 41-yard pass to make it 28-10 Black just 1:01 into the fourth quarter. Sophomore Brendan Nosovitch took over at quarterback for Garnet and led his team down the field, including a 40-yard strike to Sean Odom to set up 1st and goal from the 6-yard line. The defense delivered, though, allowing just a four-yard run to Nosovitch before forcing Garnet to turn it over on downs. Thompson finished the afternoon 8-of-11 for 129 yards and a touch down for Black, while Mitch went 7-of-10 passing for 108 yards. Skai Moore led the defense with four tackles, while Jamari Smith posted the lone interception in the game. 2014 Spring Game Awards Most Improved OL Brock Stadnik DL Deon Green WR’s Carlton Heard Spur Jordan Diggs LB Jonathan Walton TE Jerell Adams S T.J.
