FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas and Razorback Sports Properties (RSP) has announced the broadcast crew for this weekend’s pay-per-view telecast of the Arkansas-Ole Miss game.
KATV anchor Scott Inman will handle the play by play call with ESPN’s Jimmy Dykes filling the color commentator role. Inman provided play by play for the Arkansas-Louisiana Monroe game earlier this season and is a regular on the Arkansas Razorback Sports Network. Dykes has worked for ESPN for 15 years, including five seasons broadcasting college football.
Former Razorback quarterback Clint Stoerner will serve as the sideline reporter for the broadcast. Stoerner was the color analyst on the Arkansas-Louisiana-Monroe pay-per-view broadcast. He also was part of the broadcast team for Arkansas’ Red-White spring game last April.
"We are pleased that we have assembled a very strong broadcast team for the Arkansas-Ole Miss game," RSP Vice President and General Manager Ryan Gribble said. "Our broadcasting team will provide a knowledgeable, professional and entertaining telecast to fans. The trio is a great mixture of national, state and local talent that can resonate with Razorback fans across the state."
The Ole Miss game will be the third pay-per-view selection offered to Razorback fans this season. Arkansas’ games against Louisiana-Monroe in Little Rock and at Auburn were also offered through RSP.
"When the game was not selected for television, we worked to provide the only statewide television coverage permitted by league guidelines," Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. "The pay-per-view broadcast will allow Razorbacks fans to see a game that wouldn’t have been televised, otherwise. With the game being sold out, we are pleased to offer our fans across the state the opportunity to watch the Razorbacks."
Per SEC television regulations, the game is available through cable systems in Arkansas and Mississippi and to small dish owners who subscribe to DirecTV or Dish Network in the two states. The cost of the pay per view broadcast is $34.99. The game will also be available for purchase through ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
The game may also be made available outside Arkansas and Mississippi via ESPN GamePlan. Other cable and small dish owners can contact their service provider for ordering information.
