FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Seventh-ranked Arkansas' game with Florida on Oct. 18 will be on one of two national networks.

CBS has exercised its six-day option and will choose between Florida-Arkansas and LSU-South Carolina to fill its 2:30 p.m. time slot.

The game not selected by CBS will air on either ESPN or ESPN2. If the game is on either ESPN channel, the game will be at 6:45 p.m.

It will be the Razorbacks' fourth television appearance of the season. Arkansas topped No. 6 Texas 38-28 on an ABC regional broadcast and downed Alabama 34-31 in double overtime Sept. 27 on CBS.

The Razorbacks will play Auburn this Saturday at 11:30 a.m. on Jefferson-Pilot.

The Arkansas-South Carolina game on Nov. 6, in Little Rock, will be on ESPN at 6:45 p.m. and the season finale at LSU will be on CBS at 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 28.
