BATON ROUGE - The Southeastern Conference announced Monday that LSU's Oct. 1 matchup against Kentucky will kickoff at 11:20 a.m. central in Tiger Stadium on the SEC Network.

Due to CBS's exclusive windows for both the 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. time slots on this date, the only available start time for the other television networks was prior to noon.

This will mark the first time since Sept. 30, 2006, that LSU plays host to a conference opponent in this time slot. In 2008, LSU faced Appalachian State at 10 a.m. due to the threat of Hurricane Gustav.

LSU football players prepare to take the field Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.
