Report: Joe Tessitore To Host New 'SEC Nation' Show Beginning In 2014


Well it's official -- ESPN's College GameDay program now has found its biggest rival...and of course, it comes from within the ESPN family of networks. The SEC Network, which will be launched in August 2014, will air a conference-specific College GameDay-like program each Saturday in the fall from a campus in the Southeastern Conference, titled 'SEC Nation.' 

The host of the show will be Joe Tessitore -- earlier this week, The Big Lead reported that ESPN is currently in a bidding war, hoping to get Tim Tebow to be one of the analysts -- this could still be in the works.

The first two locations for SEC Nation have also been announced:

We're sure that lots of fans are going to be looking forward to this on Saturday mornings -- SEC fans love their own conference like nobody else.
