Early start for SEC teams this weekend

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Rise and shine, SEC fans.

5 of the Southeastern Conference's seven games this weekend are scheduled to start by 12:30 p.m. local time, an upside-down schedule that protects a CBS doubleheader later in the day. By the time top-ranked Florida and No. 4 LSU kick off Saturday night, the rest of the league should be finished playing.

The undercard is left for the earlier time slots, so coaches and players - and of course, fans - will have to adjust.
