UALR @ FAU to be Aired Live from The Burrow on ESPN2



In the Owls' first appearance on the ESPN family of networks since taking on North Carolina in 2006, FAU's home match-up against UALR on January 22 will be televised on ESPN2.

Start time has been moved from 7:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. to accommodate the airing.

Greg Gantt scored 29 point last season as the Owls downed the Trojans 77-74 at FAU Arena.

What do you think was the biggest factor in ESPN deciding to televise the game? Because we're doing pretty well and one of the top teams in the Sun Belt and that we're a team on the rise, or that the game is in South Florida, or all the above? Hopefully we'll start to get more coverage.

I certainly hope FAU is going to promote the hell out of this. I'm sure they will, and if we've won a few games going into this, I could see a near sell-out if its promoted right and students show up.

A lil surprised that UNT didnt get it, but hey it sounds like fun.

I'm pretty sure the students will show up in force. If there is room I hope they let them spill over to the other side.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

I think if the February game at WKU wasn't already going to be on ESPN, they probably would have picked ours up. But I'm very excited for you guys and I hope it helps get the attention your program deserves right now. Congrats, and like the WKU guy said… Enjoy it.

EDIT: Thought I was replying to the post from OwlFamily. Not sure what I did wrong.
