The SEC Network's Paul Finebaum on Thursday plans to interview Tennessee native Barry Wilmore, an astronaut now at the International Space Station.

Wilmore, of Mount Juliet, Tenn., made a special request this summer to NASA to provide the SEC Network during his time spent orbiting the earth in the space station.

Wilmore, who holds a Master of Science degree in aviation systems from the University of Tennessee Space Institute, left for the International Space Station in September and will assume command of the station in November.

Finebaum and Wilmore will talk about the space mission, Wilmore’s take on the SEC thus far and the Tennessee vs. Alabama matchup, among other topics, according to an SEC Network news release.

The interview will air during "The Paul Finebaum Show," 3-7 p.m. ET. The interview will also be posted online at
