LSU's Oct. 20 football game at Texas A&M will kick off at 11 a.m. on ESPN.

CBS exercised its six-day option last weekend, and selected the South Carolina at Florida game for its 2:30 p.m. broadcast. ESPN also announced that Alabama at Tennessee would be at 6 p.m.

LSU (6-1, 2-1 SEC) makes its first trip to Kyle Field since 1995. Texas A&M improved to 5-1 overall with a 59-57 victory over Louisiana Tech in Shreveport this weekend.

The 11 a.m. start is LSU's earliest on the road since facing Tulane at 11 a.m. in 2007. LSU played host to Appalachian State at 10 a.m. in Tiger Stadium in 2008 in a game that was moved up in preparation for Hurricane Gustav.
