ESPN called out on social media for broadcast in which reporter answered phone live on air
Luther Burden’s 88-yard punt return for a touchdown was just the beginning of what’s been an eventful matchup between the Missouri Tigers and the Abilene Christian Wildcats. But not all of that has to do with happenings on the football field (as would be implied by the fact the Tigers lead the Wildcats 17-3 with still some time to go ahead of the half).
During the game, a reporter answered their phone live on-air, something you certainly don’t see every day. That was, off course, met with some reaction on Twitter as fans knocked the broadcast and one compared it to a “high school AV club production).

Missouri will look to continue its success in this game as the Tigers aim to bounce back from last week’s dismal 40-12 loss to Kansas State.
