Anyone know if the KU-OU game will be on ESPN or ESPN2 in non-Big 12 territories? Being in Big 10 country, the Big 10 match up will be on local ABC stations, but sometimes ESPN throws a bone and moves one of their other bigger 2:30 games to ESPN or The Duce (e.g., the NU-Tech game this past weekend). Local media doesn't have it posted yet.

Bleufer - I have the same situation here in Oregon. I don't know if I'll get the games vs. OU and TTU, either.

Keep an eye on this page:

If you'll notice at the bottom of the graphic they talk about what ESPN and the ESPN2 will carry. Probably updated tomorrow or Wednesday.

depending on your internet provider you can get almost every ABC/ESPN game on espn360.com via your computer (i haven't run into a game i couldn't get, but i think they blackout some games at times). it's free but not available on every provider. hdmi cord plugged from computer to tv and you're set. not HD quality, but good quality.

great, we are going to get killed on National TV two times in a row.

Jonathan Briles 10 years, 3 months ago

Come on Frisco. We may not win either game but we have chance in both of them. I really dont think that we will get blown out of either of them.

I'm sure KU will want revenge for what happened at Homecoming last year.

Bleufer i would be asking the same question, but all the way from wisconsin i will take the 11 and a half hour drive down to Lawrence.

Mark my words, mangino will have his revenge!

Let's schedule an annual TCU game at J Jones DFW stadium..tons of $$$ and great for Texas recruting...and TCU does have high BCS ratings and bowl implications if we can win our share ... or get SMU, Rice or Arkansas to play us there

I know I know the lawrence business folks will go nuts over this idea...but I said it anyway...

I just can't help but keep thinking about how positive this CU game was. I really think the players ow have a good baseline for the level they need to play at week in and week out from the second half of that game. Would have been nice to get the win, but I think you're going to see a much more aggressive KU team the rest of the year.

Glad to see the networks are not nearly as pessimistic about our team as some of our fans - Frisco. If we, or any team, lose the pts off to battle 14-6, there is a good chance we'll lose to anyone, but I don't think that wil happen often.

I'm with Leikness. I think the D came along nicely from ISU - no not perfect, but better against a revamped CU O, and that they'll continue to improve thru the rest of the season.

Rock Chalk.

I would check the ESPN alt and ESPNU channels too. But that assumes you get them. Hope you guys see it.

Better yet, go Dodge Ball and check the Ocho, they show everything!

note to Fans: stay in stands, do not rush the field after the win, act like we expect to win. We don't rush the AFH court, EVER, and should be same with Mem. Stadium turf.
