The Big 12 Conference released the television broadcast assignments for the first three weeks of the 2014 college football season, with Kansas University scheduled for television in each of its first two games.

Kansas, playing under third-year coach Charlie Weis, will open the 2014 football season with a home game versus Southeast Missouri State on Saturday, Sept. 6. The KU-SEMO game will be played at 6 p.m., on the Jayhawk Television Network in the state of Kansas and the Kansas City metro area, and is available outside of the state lines to a national audience on ESPN3.

Football is much more expensive to support than the other non-revenue sports are. To put it very bluntly, KU football will be a consistent bottom feeder program with a year of success here and there until one of the high dollar alums decides to invest in KU football the way Pickens did at OSU and Drayton McLane has at Baylor. As long as KU keeps waiting for consistent on field success to fundraise, it's never going to happen because it takes a major financial commitment to build the foundation for long term success regardless of the current state of the football program.

Cool, another game that WON'T be available on DirecTV or Dish. Great job KU Athletics for still not getting anything done with Satellite providers, therefore leaving most rural Kansas residents left out. This is like Longhorn Network version 2.0
