Even with new TV partners, one of Georgia’s most important games will be staying in its usual time slot.

ESPN announced that Georgia’s game against Florida on Nov. 2 will be at 3:30 p.m. ET. Only instead of CBS airing the game, ABC will now do so.

This year’s game against Florida will have the added intrigue of Georgia having running back Trevor Etienne. The standout running back transferred into the Georgia program this offseason after spending the previous two seasons with Billy Napier and the Gators.

Etienne is expected to be Georgia’s top running back.

“He’s a good back. He’s quick in and out of the hole,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said of Etienne following the spring game. “He’s different than what we’ve had. I think the Swift analogy is good. Cook’s analogy is good. He’s really taken a lot of personal pride in working on his protection. He had a nice pick up today. He’s learning the offense. Look, the guy’s been a good SEC player for two years. It’s not like he’s a freshman. He’s a really good player and a really good kid. I’ve been proud of the way he’s his deal.”

Georgia has won three straight games against the Gators, including both matchups against Napier. Since Smart became Georgia’s head coach, he is 6-2 against the rival Gators. The game will be played in Jacksonville, Fla.

The SEC broadcast partner also announced that Georgia’s Week 3 game against Kentucky will start at 7:30 p.m. ET and air on ABC.

The trip to Kentucky will see Georgia face off against former Georgia quarterback Brock Vandagriff and linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson, as both transferred into the program this offseason.

The matchup against Kentucky will be Georgia’s first road game of the season. Smart is 8-0 against Mark Stoops. The two coaches are the longest-tenured in the league.

Georgia beat Kentucky 51-13 when the two teams met in Sanford Stadium last season.

ESPN has announced game times for four of Georgia’s games now. The Bulldogs take on Clemson at 12 p.m. ET on ABC on Aug. 31 and Alabama on Sept. 28. The latter is set for a 7:30 p.m. ET start on ABC as well.
