AUBURN----The Auburn at Arkansas men's basketball game in Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville on March 8 will be televised live by ESPN Classic at 5 pm Central, the Southeastern Conference announced Thursday after Raycom Sports and ESPN Classic made their wildcard selections.
This will mark the 11th televised game for the Tigers in their 16-game SEC schedule this season. It will at least be Auburn's 19th televised game this season, marking the third-most TV appearances by the Tigers in history. Auburn was televised 27 times in 1999-2000 and 21 times in 1998-99.

Raycom Sports will televise the Vanderbilt at Alabama game at 1 pm Central and the LSU at Mississippi State game at 3 pm Central on March 8. Ole Miss at Georgia will not be televised.
