JONESBORO, Ark. (AStateRedWolves.com) – The Arkansas State Athletics Department announced Monday that ESPN has chosen the Dec. 1 Arkansas State-Middle Tennessee game, scheduled for a 2 p.m. kickoff at Liberty Bank Stadium, to be televised on ESPN3.com.
Both teams enter the game with 8-3 records and 6-1 marks in conference play. This contest will determine who wins the 2012 Sun Belt Conference Championship.
This will be A-State's fourth appearance on ESPN3.com this season after the home games against Memphis, Alcorn State, and Western Kentucky were picked up earlier.
Overall, this will be the Red Wolves' ninth television appearance. ASU played one game on ESPN (Oregon), two games on ESPN2 (Nebraska and Louisiana-Lafayette), and two games on ESPNU (Florida International and Louisiana-Monroe).
