Cox Sports will televise the Frisco Classic … es-frisco/

This is the second straight year that Cox Sports Network will televise the Diamond Hogs’ early-season classic. It also showed the event in Houston last year.

Cox used to show several Arkansas games each year. Because of the SEC Network, Arkansas can no longer negotiate with Cox to show games for which it has broadcast control (at home or in North Little Rock). But Cox has been creative in getting the Razorbacks on its network by negotiating with the event.

Arkansas isn’t the only draw in Frisco. Cox is popular in at least two other markets for participating teams, Arizona and Nebraska.

Now I just have to hope that there will be an outlet on DirecTV as there was last year.
