First Three Games of Jayhawks Season Televised


The Kansas Jayhawks football team will be making a debut on FX this season. In week three of the season on Sept. 15th, Kansas will host TCU at 11 a.m. central time on the cable network. TCU along with West Virginia are new to the Big 12 conference this season.

The first two games of the Jayhawks season will also be televised. The encounter with South Dakota State can be viewed on Sept. 1st at 6:00 p.m. on the Jayhawk IMG network. In the second week of the season, Kansas hosts Rice at 2:30 p.m on FSN. Kansas made five appearances on FSN in 2011.

Other Big 12 teams in action on television for the first week of football include West Virginia hosting Marshall on FX at 11 a.m. The Mountaineers and Marshall have faced off 11 times previously with West Virginia winning every game. The Friends of Coal Bowl began in 1911 though hard feelings and politics kept the two teams from playing every year, despite being in-state rivals. Other games on the 1st include: Iowa State hosting Tulsa on FSN, Kansas State welcoming Missouri State on HD Net, and Texas hosting Wyoming on the new Longhorn network.
