JONESBORO, Ark. (11/20/17) – The Sun Belt Conference and ESPN announced Monday that the Arkansas State football team’s home finale versus Troy Dec. 2 has the potential to be chosen for an ESPN2 broadcast and the decision will be released Saturday, Nov. 25.
If the A-State vs. Troy contest is selected for an ESPN2 broadcast, the kickoff time at Centennial Bank Stadium will be set for 6:30 p.m. However, if the game is not selected, the matchup will air on ESPN3 with a game time of 2 p.m. Should the game air on ESPN2 it will be A-State’s second time on the network this season after a 43-25 win over Georgia Southern Oct. 4.
The regular-season finale versus the Trojans will be the Red Wolves’ Senior Day along with Heroes Day and Scout Day. A-State traveled to Troy last season and defeated the No. 25 Trojans 35-3 and improved to 8-5 all-time against them.
Arkansas State claimed a 30-12 victory over Texas State last Saturday to move to 6-3 overall and 5-1 in league play. The win for the Red Wolves gives them bowl eligibility for a seventh straight campaign.
A-State hits the road Saturday, Nov. 25, for a game at ULM. The contest is scheduled for a 2 p.m. kickoff and will be broadcast on ESPN3 and the EAB Red Wolves Sports Network.
