Athens, GA (Aug 29, 2008) - A blog called Southern Saturday has published a leaked copy of the CBS Sports 2008 College Football Schedule, revealing the untold truth behind how CBS selects games for broadcast. Officially, the selections for most games occurs 10 days before the scheduled game. The reality is that CBS Sports has mapped out the games they will cover long before the season starts and publishes them in their production manual. The fact is they really have to so that they can manage the logistics associated with the productions.

Here is the projected schedule for the 2008 season as reported by Southern Saturday:

Sept 13 3:30 PM Georgia @ South Carolina
Sept 20 3:30 PM Florida @ Tennessee
Sept 27 3:30 PM Tennessee @ Auburn
Oct 4 3:30 PM Florida @ Arkansas or Kentucky @ Alabama
Oct 11 3:30 PM Tennessee @ Georgia
Oct 11 8:00 PM LSU @ Florida
Oct 18 3:30 PM LSU @ South Carolina Ole Miss @ Alabama
Oct 25 3:30 PM Georgia @ LSU
Nov 1 3:30 PM Georgia-Florida
Nov 8 3:30 PM Alabama @ LSU or Georgia @ Kentucky
Nov 15 Notre Dame @ Navy
Nov 15 3:30 PM South Carolina @ Florida or Georgia @ Auburn
Nov 22 3:30 PM Ole Miss @ LSU or Tennessee @ Vanderbilt or Arkansas @ Mississippi St.
Nov 28 2:30 PM LSU @ Arkansas
Nov 29 Noon Georgia Tech @ Georgia
Nov 29 3:30 PM Auburn @ Alabama
Dec 6 Noon Army @ Navy
Dec 6 4:00 PM SEC Championship

The winners in this schedule? Georgia, with 7 possible appearances on the schedule (5 are a lock), and LSU, with 6 possible appearances (4 are a lock), dominate this years schedule. CBS Executives will be knocking wood, hoping the Georgia can live up to the hype and their brutal schedule.

Thanks Southern Saturday!
