Tigers game set for national broadcast

COLUMBIA - Officials confirmed Thursday that the Missouri-Nevada football game will be moved to a Fox Sports Net national broadcast at 11:30 a.m. Saturday. The Washington State-Baylor game had been scheduled for that time slot, but because central Texas is making preparations for Hurricane Ike, it was moved to tonight with no television coverage. Previously, the MU game had been scheduled for a pay-per-view telecast for the second consecutive week.

"The conversations began (Wednesday) when we learned the Baylor game might be affected by the hurricane," said Geoff Goldman, a spokesman for FSN Midwest.

Saturday’s Game

WHEN: 11:30 a.m.
WHERE: Memorial Stadium
TV: Fox Sports Net
RADIO: KFRU/1400 AM, KBXR/102.3 FM
JACKED: Follow the game online with Jacked, a second screen Web platform you can find online at Track statistics as they happen, chat with a Missourian reporter covering the game, view photos, video and link to other media, all while the game is being played.

Goldman said customers who purchased the pay-per-view broadcast should contact their cable or satellite providers for refund information. Before last week, the only other MU football game to be televised via pay-per-view was a 2002 loss at Nebraska.

The national telecast will be available in high definition.
