JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Arkansas State will play Kansas State a little bit earlier but in front of more eyeballs.
The Big 12 announced late Tuesday night that the Red Wolves/Wildcats matchup will now be played Saturday at 11:00am. The game will air on FOX instead of FS1. They’re taking the Baylor/Louisiana Tech time slot, that game was postponed because of residual COVID-19 effects on the Bulldogs from Hurricane Laura.
Saturday will be the first A-State football game on major broadcast television since 1981.
