With the announcement yesterday that the cable network known as VS (Versus, formally OLN) is in the mix to televise Big 12 games, here's a rundown of what Big 12 games will be televised during the first 3 weeks:

Now grant that when Big 12 teams are on the road, the opposing team's TV package applies, but none the less, at least during the first 3 weeks of the season, the number of games on TV involving Big 12 games looks to be much higher than in recent years. Hopefully this trend will continue when conference play rolls around in October.
