CBS’ toughest competition for the top SEC TV package is expected to be from Disney. Disney already owns a large slate of SEC games that it broadcasts on its ESPN and SEC Network channels, but internally the feeling is landing the current SEC on CBS package is a major priority.

Disney could carve out a weekly spot on ABC to give the games maximum exposure the way CBS has done each week in its 3:30 EST time slot for the SEC. There could be a similar commitment to more cameras and the best possible talent announcers to give it the big game feel CBS has excelled at each week. Currently, ABC has its top announcing crew of Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit slated for its primetime game.
