Longhorn Network adds Kansas at Texas, Wyoming at Texas State to 2013 broadcast schedule

In news that was first reported more than a month ago by Matt Sarz of mattsarzsports, Kansas at Wyoming will be produced and broadcast nationwide by Longhorn Network, except in the state of Kansas. In the state of Kansas the game will be shown via Jayhawks TV Network affiliates, including the newest member, Metro Sports. 

Additionally Matt Sarz has pointed out a little line hidden in the Sun Belt TV Network announcement. The Sun Belt Conference has authorized Longhorn Network as an ESPN Network and will let LHN carry Sun Belt games exclusively. the first of these games announced is this years Wyoming at Texas State game. It remains to be seen if Wyoming will get the same sort of courtesy Ole Miss and Kansas have been granted, but if last years Wyoming at Texas game was any indication, I wouldn't be holding my breath Cowboy fans. 

Anyway, here is today's Kansas at Texas announcement from ESPN Media Zone.
