It's now official: The Border War game will be a primetime, national affair.
Kansas University officially learned that KU's football game Saturday against No. 6 Missouri will kick off at 7 p.m. and be televised by ABC.
It's a full national telecast, too, meaning that 100 percent of ABC affiliates across the country will air the game.
ABC had until Nov. 1 to decide which game it wanted to televise between KU-MU and Oklahoma State-Oklahoma. But the network chose to exercise a six-day window privilege and wait to see how November played out.
Kansas (11-0) and Missouri (10-1) left little doubt as to which game had higher stakes. The two now will play for the Big 12 North title - as well as continued national-championship aspirations - under the lights of Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.
The Oklahoma State-Oklahoma game, meanwhile, will kick off at 2:30 p.m. and be televised by Fox Sports Net.
In addition, ESPN will hold its weekly College GameDay show in Kansas City.
