CBS Sports Network today announced a new, seven-episode series featuring an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the Arkansas Razorbacks’ 2012 football season.
The first episode airs at 6 p.m. CST on Wednesday, Aug. 29.
Throughout the 2012 season, the show will follow the Razorbacks through practices, road trips and team meetings. The series includes candid interviews with administrators, coaches and team members, including athletics director Jeff Long, head coach John L. Smith, and Heisman Trophy hopefuls Knile Davis and Tyler Wilson.
Online-only content will also be offered, the first of which is already available at CBSSports.com/collegefootballconfidential.
“Arkansas football is one of the most fascinating stories of the 2012 season,” said Dan Weinberg, CBS’ senior vice president of programming. “The Razorbacks are a national championship contender with two legitimate Heisman Trophy candidates, and a perfect fit for a season-long version of College Football Confidential. The access we’ve been granted and the storylines that have emerged provide plenty of compelling content, which allowed us to expand the College Football Confidential franchise to CBSSports.com for the first time.”
The network also announced that the Sept. 19 show will present a look at the team’s preparation for the Sept. 15 SEC Showdown with defending national champions the Alabama Crimson Tide.
