ESPN/ABC officials announced today they have selected the Texas-Brigham Young game for a national telecast on ESPN2. Kickoff for the Sept. 10 game will be at 6 p.m. in Austin.
In addition, the Longhorns’ season opener _ Sept. 3 against Rice in Austin _ has been selected for a telecast on an ESPN network, with time and network to be determined. It is possible the contest could be carried by the Longhorn Network, which will debut in August and will be run in partnership between the school and ESPN.
