CBS TV schedule released at conference meetings.

NCAA Football: Alabama at Louisiana State John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

It appears as though the LSU-Alabama matchup will likely headline CBS’ prime-time football slate again this season, per a network schedule announcement today at SEC conference meetings in Destin, Fla.

Nov. 4 will be one of three double-header days for the conference’s primary network partner, with LSU-Bama likely as the highest-profile matchup. Other games that day include Auburn at Texas A&M, Florida at Missouri, South Carolina at Georgia and Ole Miss at Kentucky.

LSU and Alabama has been a prime-time matchup on CBS each season since 2011. This year’s game is, of course, at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. The next two Saturdays, Nov. 11 and 18, will also be double-headers, but with a noon/2:30 p.m. CT slotting, as opposed to the 2:30/7 p.m. slotting on the 4th.

The entirety of the CBS schedule is as follows:
