The SEC and ACC Monday announced their kickoff times and TV assignments for the October 1st weekend.
USC returns home that day to play Texas A&M to open a long run of games at Williams-Brice Stadium, and for the second straight home game the Gamecocks will kick at 4:00 PM on the SEC Network.
Clemson hosts Louisville that day and depending on what happens this week, that will be a matchup of top five teams. Thus the game has been assigned an 8:00 PM kickoff with ABC televising.
