College football schedule, Week 9 kickoff, TV times: Florida-Georgia set for SEC on CBS

The annual rivalry between Florida and Georgia has once again been tapped as the best game of the week in the best conference, receiving the 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff time for Week 9. 

Week 9 promises to set the stage for the SEC East title race, not only because of the rivalry game in Jacksonville, but with Kentucky hitting the road to play against Drew Lock and Missouri in Columbia. All three of the SEC East's top contenders -- Georgia, Florida and Kentucky -- finish their SEC schedules prior to the last week of the season because of rivalry games against ACC teams, so these late-October and early-November conference tilts are actually the biggest games of the year for that division race. 

Week 9 also brings a special edition of the Notre Dame-Navy rivalry to CBS, with an 8 p.m. ET from San Diego. The Fighting Irish won 24-17 last season in South Bend but two years ago when the series went to another neutral site, in Jacksonville, it was the Midshipmen emerging victorious in a close, one-point win.
