For the second year, SEC Network is turning over its control room to the 14 Southeastern Conference schools for a two-week stretch. Beginning Monday, July 18, each school will exclusively program 24-hours of the network with classic games, films, ESPN original content and school-produced content.
Some of this year's original content includes: Catching up with the Commodores (Vanderbilt), The Burning Desire (Texas A&M), Big Blue Review (Kentucky), #MizzouMade Stories (Missouri), Being Bret Bielema (Arkansas), This is Auburn (Auburn), Eye on the Gators (Florida), Kirby Smart All Access (Georgia), Relentless (Mississippi State), The Season (Ole Miss), USC: No Limits (South Carolina), VFL Films (Tennessee) and a Season of Excellence (Alabama).
SEC schools are heavily involved in producing the more than 1,000 SEC Network + events streamed annually on WatchESPN, SECNetwork.com and the ESPN app. Every campus has at least one control room, fibered sports facilities and a bureau cam room. This year, more than 350 students gained national television experience contributing to those on-campus productions.
During the SEC Network Takeover the schools have the opportunity to create an entire day of greatest moments. Each school's appointed date - drafted at random during The Paul Finebaum Show on May 17 - and self-determined schedule can be found below:
•July 18 - Vanderbilt (schedule)
•July 19 - Texas A&M (schedule)
•July 20 - Kentucky (schedule)
•July 21 - LSU (schedule)
•July 22 - Missouri (schedule)

In addition to taking over the television show, SEC Network's social handles will be devoted each day to the appropriate school.
