PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The Big East Conference announced Monday that the Sept. 24 LSU-West Virginia football game at Mountaineer Field will be televised, but ESPN has chosen to exercise its six-day selection option and not set a network or game time until this coming weekend.
The LSU-WVU game will air on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. However, ESPN will wait until after this week's games involving the teams to decide on a kickoff time and specific network.
The networks set most TV gametimes 12 days in advance, but have a number of weeks where they may choose to wait for a six-day pick.
No. 3 LSU (2-0) plays at 25th-ranked Mississippi State (1-1) on Thursday night in a Southeastern Conference telecast game on ESPN. No. 18 West Virginia (2-0) visits Maryland (1-0) on Saturday at noon for an ESPNU telecast date.
