SEC NETWORK — Don’t have plans for the Fourth of July?
Well, thanks to UK Athletics and the SEC Network, now you do.
The SEC Network Takeover (#SECNTakeover) will continue through this weekend, with the University of Kentucky taking over national television for 24 straight hours on Independence Day.
The BBN showcase will replay 13 memorable events from the UK vault and will feature content from Kentucky men’s basketball, women’s basketball, football, baseball, softball, women’s soccer, volleyball, and gymnastics.
Coverage will start at midnight ET on July 4 with the 2011 Kentucky vs. Kansas men’s basketball game and conclude at 10 p.m. with a replay of last season’s Kentucky vs. Louisville men’s basketball game.
The “SEC Network Takeover” is a two-week programming initiative dedicated to airing programming selected by Southeastern Conference schools. All 14 schools will craft their own 24-hour schedule which may include classic game films, ESPN original content and some school-produced content.
The University of Kentucky and the SEC Network created the July 4 Wildcat schedule from available television inventory; NCAA Championships were not available to re-air.
