ESPN3 set to televise ASU-Memphis football game

From Arkansas State University

The Arkansas State Athletic Department announced Friday that ESPN has selected the Sept. 10 Arkansas State-Memphis football game, scheduled for a 6:00 p.m. kickoff at ASU Stadium, to be televised on ESPN3.com.

The Red Wolves now have six games set to be televised in 2011, including all four of its non-conference games. A-State's Sun Belt Conference games against Western Kentucky and Florida International are also set to be televised, and the Sun Belt Network has the option to televise as many as three others late in the regular season.

The Red Wolves set a school record with 10 televised games last year, and 2011 will mark the third consecutive season with at least six televised contests for A-State. In addition to the ASU-Memphis game, the Sept. 3 season opener at Illinois will be broadcast by the Big Ten Network, the Sept. 17 contest at Virginia Tech will air on Fox Sports, and the Sept. 24 home game is being televised by KATV, the ABC affiliate in Little Rock.

In conference action, ASU's Oct. 1 game at Western Kentucky will be broadcast by the Sun Belt Network, and the Oct. 18 game against Florida International will be broadcast nationally from ASU Stadium on ESPN2. The Nov. 12 ASU-Louisiana Lafayette game, the Nov. 19 ASU-Middle Tennessee matchup and the Dec. 3 ASU-Troy regular-season finale are all listed as options for the Sun Belt Network to broadcast.
