ESPN is making its Longhorn Network a bit more enticing for potential distributors.
LHN will televise two of the Longhorns’ first three games this fall — the Aug. 31 season opener against New Mexico State and the Sept. 14 game against Mississippi, both at Royal-Memorial Stadium, both at 7 p.m.. A third game, Texas vs. Kansas on Nov. 2, also may be carried as well; a Kansas athletic department official told the American-Statesman last week that discussions are ongoing.
