COLUMBIA — Three MU football games have been selected for national television broadcasts for the upcoming 2011 season, the Big 12 announced Friday.
That gives Missouri four total games picked for telecast through the early selection process. The remainder of the league games will be selected for broadcast as the season unfolds on the standard 12-day or six-day advance notice system.
The 2011 season will begin on television with the Tigers’ Sept. 3 season opener in Columbia against Miami of Ohio selected for a Fox Sports Net broadcast. Kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m.
Other games picked include Missouri’s Sept. 24 game at Oklahoma, scheduled to be broadcast at 7 p.m. on FX, and the regular-season finale against rival Kansas at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, scheduled to be broadcast at 11 a.m. on Fox Sports Network.
Missouri's 9:30 p.m. Sept. 9 game at Arizona State was picked up by ESPN.
