SEC Nation previously broadcasted from Athens this season for Georgia’s homecoming game against Missouri. That morning, head coach Kirby Smart made an appearance on set and debuted the now locally famous “Junkyard Dawg Savage” t-shirts featuring the gold shoulder pads that Georgia defenders wear after forcing a turnover.

SEC Nation will also return to Myers Quad on Georgia’s campus for this broadcast. For the Missouri game, the show was forced to broadcast from the Special Collections Library after rain saturated the quad.

Kentucky at Georgia will air as the SEC on CBS game of the week, with kickoff at 3:30 p.m.

Were the Eagles getting a coach or a nursemaid?  We're...

So is a good night's sleep.  Four members of the men's squad — two skiers and two coaches — welcomed newborns into their families in the offseason. Add in Andrew Weibrecht's daughter, Adalina, who was born two years...

Miami’s Berrios on mission to silence critics ahead of NFL draft

The challenge came so subtly, that perhaps, only Braxton Berrios perceived it as such. While most of his Hurricanes teammates and coaches celebrated the string of straight A's he'd accumulated during his first months at Miami at a team meeting, a passing comment was made.  Yes, the grades were impressive. But it wasn't like Berrios was pursuing...

Amid smoldering ash of Kidd's Bucks tenure sits NBA's best open coaching job

When considering the news that the Milwaukee Bucks fired Jason Kidd as their head coach Monday afternoon, it's important to remember how Kidd came to have the job in the first place. Four years ago, Kidd went to Brooklyn Nets ownership and asked for complete control of basketball operations, shortly after a tumultuous first year as coach. When that...
