The Rebels’ Sept. 14 game at Texas will air live on the Longhorn Network, and that telecast will also be seen on several television stations throughout Mississippi and Memphis.
ESPN, the parent company of the Longhorn Network, agreed to work with Ole Miss Athletics to add live coverage in these markets that do not include the Longhorn Network in their basic cable packages.
“We are appreciative of ESPN’s work in reaching out to the state of Mississippi and Memphis area TV stations to broadcast our game versus Texas,” Ole Miss Athletics Director Ross Bjork said. “Because of our partnership with ESPN, they understood our minimum desire to make the game as accessible as possible in our state and the Memphis market. We are thankful to the local stations for allowing the game to be aired for Rebel Nation to see. Our team is focused and excited about the 2013 season, and we cannot wait to kick off on August 29.”
