The Arkansas Razorbacks’ matchup against Auburn at Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 8 is set to be televised by ESPN.

The station last week announced the game would air on either ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU, and eventually chose its flagship station.

Arkansas is coming off a thrilling come-from-behind 42-38 victory over (then ranked) No. 14 Texas A&M last week, vaulting them into the top 10. Auburn upset South Carolina 16-13 last week, earning them a No. 15 ranking in the latest AP Top 25 coming into the game.

Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
