The Longhorn Network has announced the 3rd game being broadcasted on their network. And to no surprise, it’s the hapless “pile of crap” Kansas Jayhawks. Here is the press release:
The Longhorn Network is set to air the matchup between the Texas Longhorns and Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013 at 2:30 PM CT. The game will be televised live in HD from Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium and will be the third telecast of a UT football game on LHN during the 2013 season.
Previously announced telecasts of Texas home contests for the network include New Mexico State on Saturday, Aug. 31 and Ole Miss on Saturday, Sept. 14.
LHN is the exclusive national distributor of the game, except within the state of Kansas and the Kansas City DMA, where the game also will be aired live via the Jayhawk Television Network.
Since the teams’ initial meeting in 1901, the Longhorns hold a 10-2 lifetime record against the Jayhawks. Texas came away victorious at the pair’s most recent contest in 2012 with a final score of 21-17.
LHN’s Texas GameDay will be live from inside DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium for two hours prior to kickoff with analysis and one-on-one interviews by LHN’s Lowell Galindo and Ahmad Brooks. Kaylee Hartung will report from the sidelines. An hour of post-game analysis will follow the game with Texas GameDay Final.
So now 3 of the 6 home games will be broadcasted on the Longhorn Network. While there are rumors of a major carrier picking up the Longhorn Network in the coming weeks, most Texas fans will not be able to watch the game. This was the game that was going to be picked up by the Longhorn Network. Everyone knew it and they just announced it ahead of time.
