SEC Announces Kickoff Time for Alabama-LSU Showdown

Before the start of the season, college football fans knew the Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers were going to be two of the best teams in the country. They also knew the November 9 showdown was going to have massive SEC and College Football Playoff implications. It's no surprise people have been talking about it for months and now we know when it's all going down on the gridiron.

Normally, the SEC announces kickoff times two weeks in advance. However, CBS has already picked the time for Alabama-LSU game at Bryant-Denny Stadium will be at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Start making your plans for that Saturday afternoon now because it's going to be a party you don't want to miss, whether you are going to be in Tuscaloosa or not.
