ORU Renews Relationship with ESPN3 for 2016-17 MBB Season

TULSA, Okla. – The Oral Roberts athletics department has once again reached an agreement with ESPN3 to broadcast select home games for the 2016-17. This season, ORU will broadcast each of the eight home Summit League contests as well as the PSO Mayor's Cup game against Tulsa (Nov. 28) and the Golden Eagles' home game against Little Rock (Dec. 19) on ESPN3 and through the WatchESPN app.

With the agreement, Golden Eagle fans everywhere can watch online at WatchESPN.com, on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app and streamed on televisions through Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. ESPN3 is available in 95 million homes and by an additional 21 million US-based college students and military personnel.

The remaining home games will be broadcast for free through the ORU Sports Network at ORUAthletics.com, and are available on the web and mobile devices. For easy access, fans are encouraged to download the ORU Athletics Front Row app, which is available for both iPhone and android devices.

In addition to the home broadcasts, select road games will also be televised. ORU's opening round matchup against Ole Miss (Nov. 18) in the Paradise Jam will be shown on CBS Sports Network. Both games of ORU's trip to Michigan will be broadcast as ESPN3 will broadcast the game Dec. 1 as ORU renews its rivalry with Oakland and the Dec. 3 game against Michigan State will be broadcast by the Big Ten Network and BTN Plus.  ORU's matchup at Creighton Dec. 17 will be shown on FS2. Other road contests are expected to be broadcast as well but have not been released yet.
