Big 12 Football Early and Special Date Television Selections Finalized

Big 12 Conference television selections and designations for the first three weeks of the 2015 football season and special dates have been finalized.

Every home Big 12 football game is available for telecast, in accordance with the Conference’s 13-year joint agreement with FOX and ESPN. Each league member is allotted one member institution retained football game (MIRFG) for telecast on an institutional platform.

Per Big 12 contractual agreements, four annual special date games also highlight the schedule and each will be televised in a national window. West Virginia travels to TCU on Thursday, October 29 followed a week later by Baylor at K-State on November 5. The annual Thanksgiving matchup will feature Texas Tech at Texas on November 26 with a Friday tilt the next day when TCU hosts Baylor on November 27.

Select home games and non-conference road televised games will be released when available.

All remaining Big 12 package television selections will be announced on a 12-day or six-day basis throughout the season.
