The Tennessee-Georgia football game scheduled for Oct. 8 at Neyland Stadium will kick off at 7 p.m., and it will be televised by either ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU. Also under consideration at that time slot are the Auburn-Arkansas and Alabama-Vanderbilt games.

Tennessee and Georgia have not had a night start in Knoxville since 2003, when the Bulldogs rolled to a 41-14 win. The Vols have won the past two meetings at Neyland, with each of those kicking off shortly after noon.
