If you thought the SEC Network couldn’t be more interesting, think again.
All 14 schools in the Southeastern Conference will be given power to control the network’s television schedule in its first “SEC Network Takeover.” The endeavor is set to begin on Monday, June 29, and each institution will chose what airs on the network for 24 hours.
The viewing may include classic games, films, ESPN original content and school-produced content. Former Alabama standout and current New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram will represent the Crimson Tide in the takeover initiative.
He totaled 3,261 career rushing yards with 42 touchdowns on 5.7 yards per carry in his tenure at Alabama. Ingram won an SEC championship, a national title and a Heisman Trophy in 2009.
The SEC Network takeover is set to run through July 12, 2015. A list of all 14 representatives was featured on ESPN Media Zone.
