NEW YORK -- University of Texas Athletics will be showcased this weekend on College Sports Television (CSTV) as CSTV presents a "Hook 'Em Horns" weekend special which will run on Saturday and Sunday, April 9-10.
In the Austin area, CSTV is available on Time Warner digital cable channel 438. CSTV's main studio host, Greg Amsinger, will be on campus Saturday to host the special CSTV day from Austin.
The showcase events of the "Hook 'Em Horns" weekend are the Texas-Oklahoma softball games, which will be telecast live from Red and Charline McCombs Field on Saturday, April 9 (noon, Central time) and Sunday, April 10 (1 p.m., Central time). This weekend Big 12 Conference softball series pits the No. 4/5 ranked Longhorns (29-5 overall, 4-1 in Big 12) against the No. 6/7 Sooners (37-6, 5-0 in Big 12) in a showdown between the top two national powers in the league.
The two softball games will be complemented by original CSTV special programming on former Texas legendary football coach Darrell Royal ("The Story of Darrell Royal") and UT women's head track and field coach Bev Kearney ("The Road Back: Bev Kearney", which explores the struggles and triumphs of Kearney as she battled back from a near-fatal automobile accident).
Additionally, the special weekend will showcase the classic 1999 Cotton Bowl football battle between Texas and Mississippi State and the men's basketball Texas-Arizona game from December of 2002.
