Florida vs. South Carolina: CBS will televise game at 3:30 p.m. Eastern

Jeff Blake-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Hopes of a night game against South Carolina are out the window, but at least Florida gets the eyes of the world on CBS.

Florida and South Carolina will duel, likely for the championship of the the SEC East, on Saturday, with the eyes of the world on them. That's what happens when CBS picks up a game as the 3:30 p.m. game on Saturday.

The SEC announced that Florida-South Carolina would air on CBS at 3:30 p.m. on October 20 on early Sunday afternoon, providing closure after the network elected last week to use the six-day timeframe for selecting its matchup for October 20.

The Gators last played on CBS against LSU on October 6, defeating the Tigers 14-6. Fans had speculated that South Carolina's loss to LSU on Saturday might sway CBS to take the Tigers' visit to Texas A&M as its 3:30 game, but the clash between the Gators and their former coach, Steve Spurrier, likely proved too juicy to pass up.

Florida met South Carolina in 3:30 p.m. games on CBS in 2006, 2008, and 2009, and went 3-0 in those games, with Jarvis Moss staging the 'Cock Block in 2006, Florida swamping the Gamecocks 56-6 in 2008, and the Gators sealing a perfect SEC regular season with a 24-14 win in 2009.

Are you okay with a 3:30 p.m. game on CBS, or did you really want a night game?
