DESTIN, Fla. – Verne Lundquist’s last visit to Tiger Stadium could be for yet another prime-time LSU-Alabama tussle.

A day after CBS announced that its long-time SEC play-by-play announcer would be leaving the booth after this season, the network revealed a partial TV schedule for the 2016 season.

While the games haven’t been selected, CBS set the date of its one scheduled daytime-prime time double header as Nov. 5, the day of the LSU-Alabama game. The network will show a game in its regular 2:30 p.m. time slot that day and will also have a game at 7 p.m.

Other games around the SEC on Nov. 5 include...

Florida at Arkansas

Vanderbilt at Auburn

Georgia at Kentucky

Alabama at LSU

Georgia Southern at Ole Miss

Texas A&M at Mississippi State

Missouri at South Carolina

Tennessee Tech at Tennessee

If CBS picks the Tigers and Crimson Tide, it will mark the seventh straight season the two schools have met in prime time. An announcement isn’t expected until Oct. 24.

The only kickoff time set for an LSU game is still 2:30 p.m. Sept. 3 on ABC when the Tigers meet Wisconsin at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.

Once again, all of LSU’s games will be televised either on CBS, the SEC Network or one of the ESPN networks.

CBS will kick off its 2016 schedule Sept. 3 when UCLA plays at Texas A&M. Lundquist will share the booth with analyst Gary Danielson while Allie LaForce serves as sideline reporter.
