FAYETTEVILLE — The University of Arkansas gymnastics team makes its national cable debut Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. with last week’s meet at Florida airing on ESPN2.
The quad meet features the No. 21 Gym’Backs facing off against Southeastern Conference rival and fifth-ranked Florida. Also competing is No. 22 North Carolina and No. 32 West Virginia.
Although the meet is the first national broadcast for the Gym’Backs, it is by far not the first time the program has been on television. The Arkansas-Kentucky meet has been the SEC meet of the week twice and will again be featured on FSN this year. That meet is in Barnhill Arena Feb. 24, but airs Saturday, March 4 at 3:00 p.m. on FSN.
The Gym’Backs’ home meet with Penn State was recorded by local Fox affiliate KPBI and a one-hour condensed version airs February 18, at 3:00 p.m.
