CBS announced Monday that it’s carrying Auburn’s October 7th contest with Arkansas from Jordan-Hare Stadium. For those of you without tickets, that probably means you will beentertained tortured again by the network’s second string play-by-play man, Craig Bolerjack. That should drive the price of tickets up another $20.
Here’s the official announcement from Auburn University…
