2013 SEC Football TV Schedule – Week 1

The 2013 college football season begins on Thursday, Aug. 29, and one of the first games features an SEC team. The No. 6 South Carolina Gamecocks host the North Carolina Tar Heels at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN.

    Yo Bob, that’s an instant Classic! Maybe we can use some of the ‘money saved’ in the ‘sekester’ and throw ’em a team together before they flush the whole country down the ‘terlet’.
