Old coaching friends Gus Malzahn and Hugh Freeze will meet on the Plains.
The kickoff time and TV information for Auburn vs. Ole MIss on Oct. 5 has yet to be determined. The SEC announced Monday that the game is a part of CBS' six-day option for for that Saturday's TV schedule.
Other games up in the air next weekend are Arkansas-Florida, Georgia-Tennessee and LSU-Mississippi State. In addition to the Tigers and Rebels, CBS is considering the games between the Razorbacks and the Gators, and Bulldogs and Volunteers. The games not selected, along with the matchup between the Bayou Bengals and Cowbelldogs, will be distributed between ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU.
The kickoff times and networks will likely be announced this Sunday, following the Week 5 games. If Ole Miss defeats Alabama, next Saturday's game will almost certainly be the CBS pick. If the Rebels lose, anything is possible, but the game probably would fall to ESPN2 at worst.
Another Auburn kickoff time has been set. The Oct. 12 Homecoming game against Western Carolina will begin at 1 p.m. CT.
Three Oct. 5 games are locked in to times and networks. Georgia State-Alabama will kickoff at 11:21 a.m. CT on the SEC Network, and Kentucky South Carolina and Missouri-Vanderbilt are both set for 6:30 p.m. CT on FSN and CSS, respectively.
