LSU’s game against South Carolina will air on ESPN, the Southeastern Conference announced Thursday.

Kickoff is at 2:30 p.m. for a game relocated from Columbia, South Carolina, to Baton Rouge because of massive flooding in the Palmetto State. That announcement was made just before noon Wednesday. A time released a few hours afterward, but the television wasn’t revealed until Thursday morning.

ESPN bumped several games from their scheduled network to make the move. At least two of them included UConn-Central Florida moving from ESPNU to ESPNews and Tulane-Temple moving from ESPNews to ESPNU. Six games were moved, according to this Tulane statement.
