This is a huge move by ESPN to give the SEC a national game of the week for seven weeks during the conference season. We can only hope that other conferences across the country get similar deals with big time national networks in the coming years. There is no other sports network right now in the same category as ESPN so no conference can be as good as the TV contract that the SEC will have this upcoming season.
