Kentucky vs. Ole Miss time and TV channel set

An unexpected early kickoff time for this one.

Well, this is unexpected.

The SEC has announced game times and TV channel designations for Week 5, which will feature a top 25 clash between the Kentucky Wildcats and Ole Miss Rebels. Such a game would surely get a big slot, either in primetime on ESPN or even the weekly SEC on CBS game.

Nope. Instead, Kentucky - Ole Miss will kick off at noon ET on ESPN. You don’t typically see big top 25 matchups like this at noon.

Oh well.

This will also be the highly-anticipated return of Kentucky running back Chris Rodriguez Jr., who has been suspended for the first four games this season (read more on that here).
