SEC Nation had to adjust on the fly due to the current flooding in South Carolina and will not be in attendance for the LSU, South Carolina contest this weekend. Instead, the SEC Network’s pregame show is headed to Knoxville for the Georgia, Tennessee game. 

“Our hearts go out to the South Carolina community as they recover from the devastating floods,” said Stephanie Druley, ESPN Senior Vice President, college networks production. “We look forward to returning to South Carolina at a better time.”

Will the SEC Network’s presence bring an extra level of excitement and intensity to the Tennessee fans on campus this weekend? The Vols will need all the help they can get, as they limp into the contest after back-to-back tough SEC losses. 

Tennessee is currently listed as a three-point underdog in the SEC East showdown after losing the last two games in the series by that same margin.
