KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) Good news for Vol fans. You will be able to see the University of Tennessee battle Mississippi State on television.
The Vol Network reached an agreement with Mississippi State early Wednesday to televise the Oct 13th game on a pay-per-view basis.
Sources say this marks only the second time in their history they have been able to clear a conference game on the road for pay-per-view.
However, the homecoming game against Louisiana-Lafayette on November 3rd, which was originally scheduled for pay-per-view, will now go untelevised, because of contractual agreements with the SEC & its preferred broadcast networks.
