The Murray State football team will twice be featured as part of the OVC’s eight-game “Game of the Week” package that will air on ESPN3 throughout the 2019 season, the league announced Thursday.
Up first will be the Racers’ trip to five-time defending champs Jacksonville State October 24, followed by the 2019 football version of the Heritage Bank Battle of the Border at home against Austin Peay Nov. 16.
With the two ESPN3 games announced Thursday, Murray State will now appear on ESPN3, along with the game at Toledo, three times. MSU’s full slate of games will air exclusively on the ESPN family of networks for the 2019 season with the Racers’ game at Georgia in week two airing on ESPN2 and all other games being broadcast on ESPN+.
