FAYETTEVILLE Some Arkansas fans staying home will likely miss part of the Razorbacks' basketball against South Carolina tonight on TV.
To be clear: Arkansas has an awful game time of 8pm tonight to accomdate TV, which isn't really carrying the whole game anyhow. Got it.— Bo Mattingly (@SportsTalkwBo) February 19, 2014
The UA says the game, scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., will be joined in progress on Cox Sports Television in western Arkansas. Cox Sports is scheduled to show the LSU-Southeastern Louisiana baseball game beginning at 6 p.m., which will likely interfere with the start of the Razorbacks' game.
Tonight's basketball game is being televised by Comcast Sports South. Cox Sports regularly simulcasts CSS broadcasts. CSS is available to Comcast Cable subscribers as well through packages through AT&T U-Verse, Dish Network and DirecTV.
All SEC basketball games are also simulcast on ESPN3.com, but online broadcasts are subject to blackout in home markets.
