It’s almost time to grab some popcorn and start the weekend early with Tennessee’s SEC Network Takeover right around the corner.

Tennessee’s SEC Network Takeover will span 24 hours on Friday, July 5, starting at midnight.

The takeover will feature the Vols’ National Championship victory over Texas A&M as the main event at 9:00 p.m. ET on Friday night with several other sports leading up to it. The takeover will also show softball, men’s basketball, volleyball, football, and a Tennessee Football SEC Inside episode.

Tennessee’s 2023-2024 sports calendar was defined by conference championships so it makes sense that the schedule would have a few in there. The Vols’ SEC Baseball Tournament championship game against LSU will be played early in the morning while the Vols’ SEC Basketball regular season championship-clinching game against South Carolina will be played in the afternoon.

Tennessee’s 35-0 shutover victory over Iowa in the Citrus Bowl will also be played in the lunchtime spot.

Tennessee captured a third-place finish in the LEARFIELD Directors’ Cup standings this year, which was a program high. The Vols put together consistent success across the board with every sport reaching the postseason, four SEC championships, and one National Championship.
