Correction: 2014 Auburn/Arkansas season opener story

rblack@ledger-enquirer.comDecember 6, 2013 

ATLANTA — In a story Dec. 6 about Auburn's 2014 season opener versus Arkansas, it was incorrectly cited that the game has already been selected to air on the SEC Network. At this time, the network that will carry the game has yet to be announced.

A corrected version of the story is below:

ATLANTA — Auburn's 2014 season opener against Arkansas on Aug. 30 will host the premier new show on the SEC Network, the league announced Friday.

Dubbed "SEC Nation," it will be a two-hour, live pregame show from the site of a different league school every week. It will be hosted by Joe Tessitore.

Two days before the Tigers' home contest versus the Razorbacks, the SEC Network will carry a doubleheader featuring Temple at Vanderbilt and Texas A&M at South Carolina on Aug. 28, a Thursday night. Kickoff times have yet to be announced.

The Tigers also were involved in one of the SEC's other declarations Friday: ESPN will now produce 10 "SEC Storied" documentaries per year, up from its previous total of four. The next one in the series involves Auburn, focusing on Bo Jackson, Charles Barkley and Frank Thomas.

The film, titled "Bo, Barkley and the Big Hurt" is set to premiere on Feb. 24 at 9 p.m. ET.
