    My guess would be that it is a night game since there is 0% chance the game will be televised.

    I disagree. I think it has a decent chance of being televised. Not on ESPN but I could see a FSN or FSN off-shoot picking this game up. People like watching Army play and the last time we played it was on ESPN if I remember correctly. Personally I love 1:00 pm games so I hope it's a 1:00 game.

    If it's not televised wouldn't 1:00 be the more common kickoff time. Why pay to light the stadium when you aren't getting any TV revenue from it?

    I agree I love 1:00 games, I hate those 11:00 ones.

    Our last game with Army was on ESPN because they have/had a TV contract with ESPN. This is in Ames so that TV contract isn't in play.

    We were ranked at the time. I'm sure that had something to do with it.

    Re: When will we know when the Army game time will be

    take a look at the other Army home games and that may help you guess. I'd guess an 1 kick here in Iowa. But I could see that game not having a time untill a week before

    It was also a Friday night game, IIRC - to accomodate that tv schedule. That isn't going to happen this time around.

    We play quite a few Sept games at night without TV. Proly because of the (potential) heat.

    In fact, I'm not sure in the past few years that we have had a Sept, non-televised game that hasn't started in the evening. (KSU, UNI, UNLV)

    If it starts at 1 (and is televised) wouldn't that run into the coverage of any other televised games on that channel? Don't most networks reserve three hours blocks for football games?

    I don't how the Big 12 schedules kickoffs, but 1 PM would seem to be an odd time to start.

    FSN usually starts at either 11:30 or 12:00. I think to have their games on when everyone else goes to halftime.
