Arkansas-Georgia Game to be Nationally Televis
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas and Georgia will play on national television on Saturday, Oct. 23, but the television network and game time is yet to be determined it was announced by the Southeastern Conference office on Monday.
CBS Sports has utilized its right to a six-day option in choosing a game for that weekend. CBS is considering both the Alabama-Tennessee game and the Arkansas-Georgia game for a 2:30 p.m. CT kickoff. Conference television contracts call for networks to announce television games 12 days prior to the playing date. However, twice a year CBS may use a six-day option to delay its decision another week.
If the Razorbacks and Bulldogs are not chosen for CBS Sports they will play in a game televised by either ESPN (6:45 p.m.) or ESPN2 (6 p.m.) A final decision will be made on Sunday and the announcement will be posted on www.hogwired.com.
In any event, Arkansas will be making its fifth national television appearance of the season when it takes on Georgia. The Razorbacks appeared on ESPN against Texas and have made back-to-back appearances on CBS against Alabama and Florida. Arkansas is also scheduled to appear on CBS this weekend against Auburn and on Nov. 26 against LSU.
