The SEC Coordinator of Football Officials Steve Shaw  will serve as the game’s “white hat”. He will be wired and also wear a head cam for additional officiating viewpoints.  SEC Network + plans to stream a singular Ump Cam view throughout, available on the ESPN app and WatchESPN.


Traditional game coverage on SEC Network will be provided by Dave Neal and Matt Stinchcomb.
