FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas' game at Missouri will be televised by ESPN tonight.
The game, which begins at 6 p.m., was originally scheduled to be televised by ESPN2. It was moved to the other network when a previously scheduled contest between Louisville and Temple was postponed because of weather.
Arkansas has won two straight games and is coming off its first road win of the season last Saturday at Vanderbilt. The Razorbacks lost 75-71 to Missouri in Fayetteville on Jan. 28. The Tigers have lost three straight games since beating Arkansas.
It's the second consecutive night ESPN has picked up a scheduled ESPN2 broadcast. Washington-Stanford was shown last night when a game between Duke and North Carolina was postponed.
