Like any good 24-hour channel, the SEC Network needs filler. Thankfully, it appears they're avoiding all-night reruns of the Paul Finebaum Show and the Roll Tide/War Eagle documentary. In these early weeks at least, they plan airing classic SEC games, including a set for each team.
They're going to air five consecutive great Razorback games beginning at 9 p.m. Central on Sunday August 24th. Here's the list:
- THE FIRST 7-OVERTIME GAME: 2001 Arkansas at Ole Miss (ARK 58, MISS 56) – Sun. 8/24 (9 p.m. CT)
- THE WE GOT THAT WOOD PUT HIM IN THE HEISMAN GAME: 2007 Arkansas at LSU (ARK 50, LSU 48) – Mon. 8/25 (12 a.m. CT)
- THE GAMEDAY GAME: 2006 Tennessee at Arkansas (ARK 31, TENN 14) – Mon. 8/25 (2 a.m. CT)
- THE McFADDEN BEAT SPURRIER SO BAD HE DIDN'T VOTE DMAC FOR HEISMAN GAME: 2007 South Carolina at Arkansas (ARK 48, SC 36) – Mon. 8/25 (4:30 a.m. CT)
- THE WE'RE GOING TO THE SUGAR BOWL GAME: 2010 LSU at Arkansas (ARK 31, LSU 23) – Mon. 8/25 (7 a.m. CT)
And as expected, there are a couple of Razorback heartbreakers included on other team's lists. For those nihilists out there:
- 2007 Arkansas at Alabama (ALA 41, ARK 38) – Sat. 8/16 (2 a.m. CT)
- 2006 SEC Championship Game – Arkansas vs. Florida (FLA 38, ARK 28) – Sat. 8/23 (2:30 a.m. CT)
Here's the full list for everybody. For those of you who believe the SEC and ESPN always give Arkansas the shaft whenever possible, I'm sure you'll note that the Arkansas game-winners won't be shown until after every other SEC team other than South Carolina, Missouri, and Texas A&M (other than the 2012 Alabama upset). You know, all the new guys.
Here's hoping they continue to air older games that predate the HD era.
