    ISU/Texas on Thursday night

    Looks like a done deal:
    Cyclones To Host Texas On Thursday Night - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Thursday night game on ESPN?

    Networks carrying the games and kickoff times will be announced at a later date.
    This has to mean ESPN right?


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    Re: ISU/Texas on Thursday night

    It's nice to be on ESPN, but I'm getting sick of the Thursday night games. It makes the wait for the next week's game unbearably long.

    I'm okay with this. We have a Thursday night game the week before, so will have a full game week to prepare.

    We go the full conference slate without a bye week. So this at least gives us a mini bye after the first game.

    Hopefully the team decides to show up this time. Texas has smacked us around the last couple years.

    Re: ISU/Texas on Thursday night

    I honestly probably wouldn't mind it, if there was only one Thursday night game during the year.
    If WV game moves to Friday, that's 3 non Saturday games for ISU.

    National TV is good, but this blows for the fans.

    Re: ISU/Texas on Thursday night

    Thursday Games suck; it can't be worth this amount of money to ruin the Sat experience for many fans who travel, let alone those who have jobs and family commitments during the week. Hope JP never agrees again.

    As a student I love this. I realize it sucks for the 9-5ers.

    I have a feeling it could be the new FoxSports1 channel (I believe it is replacing Speed channel). This article talks about how they plan on televising Big 12 games on Thursdays and Saturdays.

    FOX Sports announces FOX Sports 1 network - News | FOX Sports on MSN

    Supposedly Fox thinks this will be ESPNs match.

    Tulsa is an away game and the Friday after Thanksgiving is a holiday. SO while it looks bad at first glance only one of those games (Texas) really has an impact.
