ATHENS – The starting time for Georgia’s Oct. 2 football game at Colorado has been changed to 7 p.m. ET (5 p.m. Mountain Time), the schools announced Tuesday.
The game was originally scheduled to be played 2 1/2 hours earlier, at 4:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. MT).
As before, the game will be televised nationally on Fox Sports Net.
The reason for the change: TV contracts, of course.
ABC is televising the Oklahoma-Texas game at 3:30 p.m. ET on Oct. 2. Shifting the Georgia-Colorado game preserves ABC’s Big 12 exclusivity in the 3:30 p.m. window.
