The Ole Miss softball team will have two games broadcast on Fox Sports Net this season, including one home game at the Ole Miss Softball Complex, the Southeastern Conference office announced Tuesday.
Fox Sports Net (SportSouth, FS Midwest, FS Southwest and Sun Sports) will televise Ole Miss’ home game against Arkansas on March 23, as well as the Rebels’ road game against No. 1 Tennessee on May 4.
“It’s always fun and exciting to play on TV, and we’re really looking forward to not only getting to play in front of all the Rebel Nation across the country, but to also get to showcase our team at home at the Ole Miss Softball Complex,” Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees said.
The starting times for both games have changed on account of being on TV. The Rebels’ game against Arkansas on March 23, which was originally scheduled for 1 p.m. CT, will now be played at 3 p.m. CT. Ole Miss’ game in Knoxville, Tenn., at the home of the Lady Vols on May 4, which was originally scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. CT, will now begin at 12 p.m. CT.
In addition to regular season action, fans can watch the SEC Tournament (May 7-10 in Columbia, S.C.) on ESPNU and ESPN2. Fans will also be able to access the ESPN telecasts on WatchESPN.com and the WatchESPN mobile app, while the FSN and CSS contests will be available through ESPN3 and the WatchESPN mobile app.
Ole Miss opens its season Feb. 7 against Western Kentucky and Florida Gulf Coast in Fort Myers, Fla., as part of the FGCU/Four Points by Sheraton Invitational. The Rebels’ home opener is against Bowling Green on Feb. 21 at 6 p.m. CT in the annual Red and Blue Classic.
