NASHVILLE – A pair of Tennessee State football games have been selected as part of the Ohio Valley Conference Game of the Week package to be aired on ESPN3 this fall. The Tigers will be the featured game during weeks two and four of conference play.
The first of the two televised contests will pit TSU versus UT Martin on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 2:00 p.m. Game two is the Saturday, Oct. 15 match-up with Eastern Kentucky, scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
The OVC package is booked for eight weeks, but only the first four weeks are predetermined. The final four weeks will feature Wildcard Selections beginning on Oct. 29 and will be announced roughly 12 days before the contest.
Kevin Ingram, host of "The Wake Up Zone" on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, will handle play-by-play duties while Bob Belvin, on-air talent and contributor at 100.7 FM/AM 540 (ESPN Clarksville), will provide analysis. The duo has worked together each of the past four years in the league's TV package.
The OVC Football Game of the Week package is part of an overall multiyear agreement with ESPN which was announced in October 2013.
