Skyhawks on tube twice in OVC slate
The University of Tennessee at Martin football team will play two games this season on the Ohio Valley Conference Football “Game of the Week.”
The Skyhawks’ game set for Sept. 25 at Murray State and the home game against Tennessee State University on Nov. 13 will be televised by the Wazoo Sports Network.
The Ohio Valley Conference and Wazoo Sports have partnered to broadcast the OVC Football “Game of the Week.” The Wazoo Sports Network will begin airing the “Game of the Week” starting in September and running through November.
A complete list of the stations and affiliates outside the Wazoo Sports Network coverage area that will broadcast the games will be released in August.
The 10-game schedule will feature every OVC school at least twice during the season.
• His players are not on campus, but that doesn’t mean UT Martin head baseball coach Bubba Cates is not paying attention to them as they spend the summer playing in various collegiate leagues across the country.
This past week, in the Valley League in Virginia and the Texas Collegiate League, rising junior Jordan Owen and rising sophomore Alec Mills posted career numbers.
Owen led the New Market Rebels to a 14-3 victory over the Westchester Royals. He went 5-6, with three runs, six RBI, two home runs, and a stolen base.
Owen, who set a new UT Martin single season home run record this past spring with 18, is hitting .352.
Down in the Texas Collegiate League, Mills continues to prove his worth for the Brazos Valley Bombers. Mills has pitched 20 straight innings without allowing an earned run.
• UT Martin’s assistant men’s basketball coach Jay Bowen has accepted a similar position at UT Chattanooga.
Bowen, who spent two seasons as an aide in the Skyhawk program to Bret Campbell and Jason James, respectively, will replace David Conrady on the UTC bench.
