Cox Sports starts LSU Tiger Week on Sunday leading up to Kickoff Classic
NEW ORLEANS – Cox Sports Television (CST), the exclusive regional network home of the LSU Tigers, announced to-day a special week of Tiger football coverage heading into the season opener against the Oregon Ducks in the 2011 Cowboy Classic. CST’s Tiger Week, sponsored by Jani King and running from August 27th thru September 4th, will turn the net-work purple and gold with game replays from last season, the 2011 season preview show, exclusive reports from Arlington, Texas, and much more.
CST will also feature the most extensive postgame coverage of the Tigers following the LSU-UO contest emanating from the Louisiana CAT studios in New Orleans and on-site from Arlington. Tune in for highlights from co-hosts Victor Howell and Paul Crane, as they get analysis from Lyn Rollins, Greg Bowser and Jordy Hultberg Live from Cowboys Stadium.
“The anticipation of the Oregon-LSU game on September 3 has been building for months” stated CST Network head Rod Mickler, “In anticipation of that great game, for a full week we will turn the full attention of our network and social media outlets to all things Purple and Gold, CST is must have TV for all Tiger fans!”
CST will also highlight the Tigers across all of its multi-media platforms including Coxsportstv.com, Twitter, Youtube and Facebook. The social media sites will feature polls, blogs from CST announcers, computer wallpaper and chances to win autographed LSU gear.
CST will also go “Behind Enemy Lines” with reports on the Ducks from writers that know them inside and out. Oregon football beat writers Rob Moseley of the Eugene (Ore.) Register Guard and Gary Horowitz of the Salem (Ore.) Statesman Journal will be featured on CoxSportsTV.com every day during Tiger Week.
