ESPN reveals full details of the SEC football schedule

We are in the middle of June and that means that the football season is coming soon. This means both pro and college football, with the latter coming a little earlier. College football has almost become a national pastime, with the sport’s popularity growing every season.

Despite all the new rules and additions to the sport, Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL), the game itself still draws a huge audience every year.

This season we will see the Big Ten Conference be more powerful than ever before with the addition of a few Pac-12 teams. But the crown jewel of college football is still the SEC conference.

The SEC has dominated the sport for years and remains the premier conference in the sport. Many believe this is essentially the NFL light and that players who play in this conference get an early look at what the next level looks like.

The conference’s success over time has seen it generate a lot of intrigue from fans and media alike. Having teams like Alabama, LSU, Florida, Georgia, Auburn and more gives the SEC a relevance that no other conference has been able to maintain for so long. They will look to win back the National Championship after Michigan took home the crown this past season.

We recently received the start times for the first few weeks of the 2024 SEC schedule and now ESPN has announced the start times for the rest of the games.
