Are you ready for some football, SEC fans? How does a little Sunday night action sound? According to commissioner Mike Slive, SEC Sunday Funday could be a very real thing this season.
The SEC Network is set to launch on Aug. 14, and it appears that the conference and ESPN are taking aim at NBC’s Sunday night NFL broadcast. On Monday, Slive told reporters that the conference would host a Sunday night game early in the season.

Whether or not this becomes a regular fixture remains to be seen. However, considering Sunday evenings are dominated by the NFL, it isn’t a bad marketing idea to throw a game from college football’s biggest conference into the mix. It would be very interesting to see how a marquee SEC matchup would fair while up against the NFL’s primetime game of the week.
