    ABC Saturday Night Games

    Looks like ABC is going to have a headline game every Saturday night. Clones might have one chance to get on and that is October 7 against Nebraska.....

    Saturday, Oct. 7
    Baylor at Colorado
    Nebraska at Iowa State
    Texas A&M at Kansas
    Oklahoma State at Kansas State
    Missouri at Texas Tech
    Texas at Oklahoma

    I would have to think The Red River Shootout would be picked over ISU/NU

    However, there are 3 games in Novemeber (4,11,18) we might have a chance at..I would have to say our best chance is on the 18..which would be another season finalie night game at Jack Trice....hopefully mother nature has got her tickets already!!

    Saturday, Nov. 4
    Baylor at Texas Tech
    Kansas State at Colorado
    Kansas at Iowa State
    Missouri at Nebraska
    Oklahoma at Texas A&M
    Oklahoma State at Texas

    Saturday, Nov. 11
    Baylor at Oklahoma State
    Iowa State at Colorado
    Texas at Kansas State
    Nebraska at Texas A&M
    Texas Tech at Oklahoma

    Saturday, Nov. 18
    Oklahoma at Baylor
    Missouri at Iowa State
    Kansas State at Kansas
    Oklahoma State at Texas Tech

    Re: ABC Saturday Night Games

    Can someone explain the TV package better if I don't have it right.
    I thought that basically we can only be on ABC if the game is big enough.
    Otherwise we get could get picked up on Fox sports which does a terrible job of showing games according to region.
    I thought that TBS had one Saturday night game per week. Did they drop that?
    If those fail then we head for the radio?
    That is where Iowa has us by the balls. They either play on ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or Regional ESPN Plus. They know what they are getting every week regardless of how well they play. We have to have a miracle season to get the TV exposure they get.
    Mark my words....EPSN Gameday live from Iowa City - Ohio State vs Iowa. (There is no other game scheduled worth crap that day and if OSU gets by Texas and Iowa beats ISU then that would be the matchup) We gotta get better so we can get over this hump.

    this give a pretty good explantion of how the big 12 does it...although it still shows last years schedule. Also, you have to remember that this only applies to HOME GAMES, so since we play Iowa on the road this year...the big 10 owns TV rights to that game, and the Big 12 owns the rights to the Txas/Ohio St game.

    OK, some of these must be regional games. I guess that makes more sense but I originally thought it would be one national game since they mentioned Mushberger and Davie as doing the games.

    Re: ABC Saturday Night Games

    The red river shootout will most likely be during the day. I still like our chances to be the saturday night game when we play Nebraska. That would be sweet.. beatin the Huskers on national television..good exposure for us...

    Re: ABC Saturday Night Games

    The Red River Shootout is always an early game so it would be a huge departure from the norm for it to be a night game. Other games that could preempt us would be the listed Oregon @ Cal matchup, Washington @ USC, or Stanford @ Notre Dame from the Pac 10; North Carolina @ Miami and Maryland @ Georgia Tech from the ACC, or maybe Michigan/Michigan State (which is slotted for 3:30 on ESPN and the Big Ten is not supposed to be in the mix for the prime time slot that week, but in TV, everything is negotiable).

    If I were a betting man, I'd put my money on the ACC or Pac 10 landing the October 7th game with either UNC/Miami or Oregon/Cal, especially since the Red River Shootout is likely to be a national game kicking off at 11 on ABC.

    ISU's best bet for this slot would be that December 2nd game.

    Re: ABC Saturday Night Games

    Guess we are relegated to ESPN Plus unless we upset Texas or Oklahoma. Upsetting Iowa would only be normal.

    In past years (2000-2004), when Okla-Tex were both top-5----people in eastern Iowa were stuck watching a sh#tty Big 10 game like Illinois-Indiana on ESPNPlus

    We had to watch the Tex-Okla game highlites, because of this fricking crappy Big 10 game

    I relieze that traditionally it is a early game, and the cotton bowl does not have lights. But we are looking at the possibility of 2 top 10, maybe even top 5 teams in the nation squaring off. With the TV money that would be thrown their direction to get them on prime time on a Saturday night, I just dont see how they could turn it down and bring in some portable lights.
