Exactly three months before the new network launches on Aug. 14, the league announced television schedules for SEC volleyball and women's soccer. In the SEC Network's first season, the SEC - and by extension, UK - will enjoy unmatched national exposure.

In total 80 games - 50 volleyball, 30 women's soccer - will air on either the SEC Network or ESPNU.

"These schedules reflect the breadth of exposure that our student-athletes will receive in the SEC's Olympic sports on the SEC Network," said Commissioner Mike Slive.  "It's indicative of the full array of sports and unprecedented number of televised events SEC fans will enjoy throughout the athletic year."

UK's volleyball and women's soccer teams will be featured prominently. Craig Skinner's Wildcats will make at least eight national television appearances. Here's their complete SEC Network/ESPNU schedule.

Wed, Sept. 24    9 p.m.    KENTUCKY at LSU (ESPNU)
Sun, Oct. 5    6 p.m.     TEXAS A&M at KENTUCKY
Sun, Oct. 12    Noon     AUBURN at KENTUCKY
Sun, Oct. 26    Noon    KENTUCKY at TEXAS A&M
Wed, Oct. 29    8 p.m.    TENNESSEE at KENTUCKY (ESPNU)
Sun, Nov. 9    Noon     MISSOURI at KENTUCKY
Sun, Nov. 16    Noon     FLORIDA at KENTUCKY
Sun, Nov. 23    2 p.m.     KENTUCKY at MISSISSIPPI STATE

Jon Lipsitz's Cats, meanwhile, will appear three times on the SEC Network or ESPNU.

Thu, Oct. 2    7 p.m.     KENTUCKY at MISSOURI
Sun, Oct. 5    Noon    KENTUCKY at TEXAS A&M (ESPNU)
Sun, Oct. 19    4 p.m.     FLORIDA at KENTUCKY

In addition, the first round, quarterfinals and semifinals of the SEC Soccer Tournament will air on the SEC Network.

All this is yet another reason to visit GetSECNetwork.com and demand the SEC Network if your cable/satellite provider has not yet signed on to carry it. So far, only AT&T U-Verse, DISH, Google Fiber and National Rural Telecommunications cooperative (NRTC) have agreed to carry the SEC Network.
