Auburn, Ala.--Saturday’s Auburn at Mississippi State SEC football game will be televised on ESPN instead of the SEC Network.
The league office made the announcement of the TV coverage change on Thursday after the decision was made not to play Saturday’s LSU at Florida game because of concerns about the weather in Gainesville, Fla., due to an approaching hurricane.
Auburn's kickoff is set for shortly after 11 a.m. CDT at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Miss. Auburn will bring a 3-2 record with a 1-1 SEC mark into the contest while Mississippi State is 2-2 overall and 1-1 in the league.
The Tigers lead the overall series 61-26-2 and have a 12-6-1 advantage in games played at Starkville, the Bulldogs have won the last two meetings including a 17-9 decision last season at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Ton Hart is scheduled to do the play by play for the contest with Andre Ware as the analyst and Cole Cubelic as the sideline reporter.
The Auburn radio network's coverage featuring Rod Bramblett, Stan White, Ronnie Brown, Paul Ellen and Andy Burcham can be heard on Sirius channel 83 and XM 190.
