    I've been really hoping for this ever since I saw the schedule asterisk.

    I can handle one home game on a Thursday every couple years or so. As long as it's not a regular fixture it's fine.

    Re: Thursday Night FootBall - Here it comes (one source)

    The bigger news out of that article is the fact they are contractually obligated for 4 Thursday games -- two on Fox and two on ESPN. I'd be nice if Fox was actual Fox Network. If it's FSN and the Texas @ ISU game ends up being on there, then the benefit to playing the game on Thursday goes way down.

    But I expect a Big 12 matchup involving Texas will be attractive for ESPN Thursday Night Football.

    The associate Athletic Director @ Texas said Iowa State was fighting to have the game played on Thursday night. We want it (likely for the national audience).

    Re: Thursday Night FootBall - Here it comes (one source)

    The FSN Thursday night games have generally been OOC, so it would be interesting to see if they get conference games as part of the new contract or just a Big 12 home team playing on a Thursday night.

    There may be differences between fans, and between fans and AD.

    This would probably result in far less Texas fans coming to Ames for the game.

    It will be on the Fox network, not FSN..........however ESPN will get their Horns to play on their network.

    Too bad the NFL has to have a game on Thursday nights, it really takes away from the attention of college football had on the Thursday night games.
