SEC For Now Shifts to Two Weekly Shows, Final ‘Friday Fan Night’ on SEC Network Set for May 22


SEC Network’s weekly TV lineup will welcome a second edition of SEC For Now, the digital and social media complement to SECN’s signature studio show, on Saturday mornings at 10 a.m. ET following Marty & McGee. In addition, SEC Network will finish out its ‘Friday Fan Night’ polls next week, while continuing its primetime programming surrounding throwbacks to the Women’s College World Series and College World Series.

‘Friday Fan Night’ Vote Reaches Fever Pitch
Every week of the spring, SEC Network featured ‘Friday Fan Night,’ showcasing an SEC softball and baseball doubleheader determined by SEC fans around the world. Next week will be the final week of voting.

On Tuesdays (baseball) and Wednesdays (softball), SEC Network hosts a Twitter poll for fans to choose their favorite games based on theme. Each Twitter poll is open from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. for SEC faithful to weigh in. The winning softball game airs on Fridays at 7 p.m., with the final baseball vote-winner following at 9 p.m.

Weekly WCWS and CWS Games on Mondays and Thursdays at 7 p.m.
On Mondays and Thursdays, SECN is spotlighting the conference’s stellar softball and baseball squads with a featured postseason matchup in primetime.

Every Monday night at 7 p.m., the network showcases either an SEC team clinching a Women’s College World Series title or a featured matchup from the SEC Softball Tournament. Next week’s game is the 2019 SEC Softball Tournament semifinal showdown between Auburn and Florida.

Every Thursday at 7 p.m., SEC Network is highlighting a championship-clinching game from the NCAA College World Series. Next week’s tilt is from the 2014 NCAA College World Series, featuring Game 3 of the CWS Finals as the Commodores captured their first CWS title.

SEC Network Continues to Innovate with Social and Digital Engagement
SEC Network launched #HomeSchoolSpirit last week, a new initiative as part of its “We Love It Here” brand campaign. SEC fans are encouraged to post photos and videos on social media with the hashtag #HomeSchoolSpirit to display how they keep their SEC fandom going while staying at home.

SEC Network also continues its robust lineup of social and digital programming for SEC fans looking for current conversation surrounding the world of sports, including No Offseason with Laura Rutledge, SEC For Now and SEC Update. Over the past several weeks, new segments stepped into the fold, such as Marty & McGee’s Show & Tell, Remember When… and What Day Is It? with Alyssa Lang.
