The SEC football championship is moving to primetime this season.
The SEC announced Thursday afternoon that the major college football game was moving to an 8:00 EST kick. Normally, the SEC title game starts in the late afternoon. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Okay, I’m very split on this decision. Part of me loves it. College football games automatically become better when they’re night games.
That’s just a fact. It’s science. Once the sun goes down, college football games become way cooler and the stakes are automatically raised.
Here’s the reason I don’t love it, and it’s simple. The Big 10 title game is also a primetime game. How the hell am I supposed to watch both games at the same time?
Yes, I have multiple televisions in my living room, and I can put them on at the same time. However, that’s not what I want to do.
I want to commit my complete and total focus to one game at a time. Seeing as how I highly-doubt that the B1G will move back to the afternoon, I’ll now be forced to split my focus. I don’t really love that at all.
Still, a nighttime SEC title game should be a hell of a lot of fun.
