- Trying to watch and bet Arkansas-Georgia? The Bulldogs are a big favorite in this top-10 SEC clash.
- The game will be shown on ESPN at 12 p.m. ET from Stanford Stadium in Athens, Ga.
You might be wondering why No. 2 Georgia vs. No. 8 Arkansas begins at noon ET, and not in the CBS afternoon slot or under the lights in primetime.
Alabama and Ole Miss are slotted in the 3:30 ET window on CBS — no surprise, given the storylines and magnitude. It’s not a top 10 matchup by the AP Poll, but it’s darn close, and features the highest over/under in SEC history.
So ESPN was left with three choices for UGA-Arkansas — noon ET, 6 p.m. ET, or 9 p.m. ET — because its SEC tripleheader schedule was set before the year, and the late game must start in the Central Time Zone (Athens, Ga., is Eastern Time). So noon it is, as 6 p.m. would overlap too much with the Alabama-Ole Miss game.
Georgia-Arkansas Start Time
- Date: Saturday, Oct. 2
- Kickoff: 12 p.m. ET
Like we detailed above, this game kicks off at noon because there simply weren’t any other options. CBS picked Alabama-Ole Miss, and ESPN had this SEC tripleheader already locked in. Either noon, or go up against with the end of Bama-Ole Miss. Easy choice.
The SEC has a few more marquee matchups next week, including Arkansas-Ole Miss and Georgia at Arkansas, which don’t have times set yet.
How Can I Watch UGA-Arkansas?
- TV: ESPN
- Stream: ESPN app (cable subscription required)
Even is you pay for ESPN+, you do not get access to live sporting events broadcast across ESPN’s family of networks. You need a cable subscription to stream those games (or login credentials to one).
Georgia will be favored in all of its remaining games, according to our power ratings, with the lowest spread being -9.5 on a neutral field in Jacksonville against Florida.
That’s in part because the Bulldogs aren’t just winning — they’re everyone out. They average 6.97 yards per play on offense, 23rd nationally, and rank first in yards per play against.
Outside of Clemson, the schedule hasn’t been tough (UAB, South Carolina and Vanderbilt), but you like to see elite teams take care of business quickly in those games.

The Hogs have been the talk of college football so far. Sam Pittman, not the first choice of hire for a lot of Arkansas fans, has built on a strong end to last season and started 4-0 in his second year.
Most impressively, the Razorbacks have two wins by double digits as an underdog, over Texas and Texas A&M.
The schedule the rest of the way is diabolical, which is what kept most people off Arkansas as any kind of sleeper in the SEC West. We project them as an underdog four times, including Saturday at Georgia and next week at Ole Miss.
