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.
