CBS Sports will begin its 13th consecutive season of covering SEC football with a bang.

To kick things off, how does the Alabama-Texas A&M game sound?

According to SEC Digital Network, CBS Sports has picked up the highly anticipated matchup, which will be played on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 3:30 p.m. ET. It is arguably the most talked-about game of the 2013 season, as it will have SEC Championship and BCS implications.

After Johnny Manziel and company found a way to top the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa last season, handing eventual national champion Alabama its only defeat, the rematch in College Station, Texas, should be something special.

There will be storylines by the truckloads leading up to the big game between SEC West rivals and could turn out to be the most watched game of the season if it lives up to the hype.

The rest of the CBS schedule includes 16 games during the network’s 13-week season. Some of the other games include Florida-Georgia on November 2, Arkansas-LSU on November 29 and the SEC Championship Game on December 7.

There will also be an SEC doubleheader on October 19 and November 9. The two-game event in October could feature South Carolina at Tennessee and Florida at Missouri, while the November games are certain to include the LSU at Alabama meeting.

With the SEC looking like the conference to beat once again, CBS will continue to be the network that you want to focus on if you are a fan of championship-level football. There will be plenty of competitive matchups with national championship implications on the line most weeks.

Still, none is bigger and more exciting than Round 2 between the Aggies and Crimson Tide.
