FRISCO, Texas — The first-ever football game between the University of Central Arkansas and Lamar on Saturday will be the Toyota Game of the Week on the Southland Conference Television Network. Coverage beings at 3 p.m. on KARZ (Conway Corp. channel 9), with kickoff scheduled just five minutes later.
