“We are very pleased that the Big 12 is allowing us to show two football games this fall on Cyclones.tv,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “It is a great opportunity for us to grow the station’s brand across the state of Iowa. We believe the exposure our athletics program has gained from Cyclones.tv has been instrumental in helping increase season ticket sales and donations to our athletics program.”
All online subscribers to Cyclones.tv will be able to see the Toledo game. However, due to restrictions from Big 12 television agreements, only Cyclones.tv online subscribers in the state of Iowa will have access to see the Texas game. Big 12 television agreements prohibit online distribution of the game between the Cyclones and Longhorns outside the state of Iowa.
