Game time is 5:00 PM CT and tonight’s game will be televised on the SEC Network.
Bowling had four matches on Friday and won all four at the Lady Techsters Classic in Dallas. Play will pick up again today at 10:25 AM CT with streaming on bowl.com. (I’m sure parlagi will come in and tell us that it costs money.)
