SEC Network Football is a live game presentation of SEC football on the SEC Network. These telecasts have many different presenting sponsors, but some include Dr. Pepper, Allstate, and Regions Bank. There are typically 3 telecasts every Saturday during the college football regular season, though beginning in 2015, the SEC Network Alternate channel gets one game, usually during the 4:00 PM time slot. The Noon game is preceded by SEC Nation and succeeded by SEC Now which will also serve as a pregame and postgame show for the 4:00 game. The 7:30 game will be succeeded by SEC Scoreboard.


The SEC had won seven straight college football national championships when the SEC Network was announced in May 2013. On March 12, 2014, the SEC Network named Brent Musburger as the lead play-by-play announcer and Jesse Palmer as the lead analyst. It was later announced that Maria Taylor would join them as the sideline reporter. In July 2014, the SEC Network named the rest of their football announcers. Tom Hart would be a play-by-play announcer, paired up with Matt Stinchcomb as the analyst, and Heather Mitts as the sideline reporter. Also, Dave Neal would do play-by-play announcing with Andre Ware as the analyst, both moving from SEC TV. They would be joined by Laura Rutledge as the sideline reporter. The first football game broadcast on the SEC Network was on Thursday, August 28, 2014, when Texas A&M defeated South Carolina 52-28. CBS gets the exclusive first pick of the day's SEC games before ESPN and SEC Network can choose.
