The Ball State Cardinals are about to help usher in a new technology this season when they take on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers this September.
Earlier Friday afternoon, Awful Announcing reported an updated version of Stadium’s live sports lineup, primarily centered around fifteen Conference USA games, one of which includes a non-conference tilt between the Cards and Tops.
The game will be broadcast on the newly-formed 24/7 social media streaming service, which will be structured on a combination of live sports and original programming. The channel is the result of a merger between Silver Chalice (which owns Campus Insiders,) 120 Sports and Sinclair Broadcasting (which owns American Sports Network.)
The games are also eligible to be aired on Sinclair Broadcasting-owned stations, which should expand soon, thanks to the company’s recent acquisition of Tribune Media and its 42 television stations. The online version of Stadium is set to launch in July, while Stadium will hit televisions in August.
Ball State will travel to Bowling Green, Kentucky to take on WKU on Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. EST.
