Ole Miss, ESPN working on deal to televise LHN game against Texas
The Big-12 game times and TV schedules have been set and it has been announced that the Longhorn Network will televise the September 14 matchup between the Ole Miss Rebels and the Texas Longhorns.
Schedules were announced on Big12sports.com, and with the distribution problems of LHN many of the Ole Miss faithful became worried they wouldn’t have a chance to see the game.
There worries would be reasonable, as many in the state of Texas are still without the multi-million dollar network, that is running out of excuses closing in on its second full year in service.
According to the Ole Miss Football Twitter account, however, fans may still be able to see the much-anticipated match-up in Austin, Texas as it was announced that Ole Miss and ESPN are working on ways to accommodate many of the fans who could miss out.
It is still unclear how these accommodations will play out for fans in Mississippi or Texas, maybe a pay-per-view or ESPN3 option will be available. What is clear though is the Longhorn Network is still struggling and the effects are now being felt outside the state of Texas.
