Several cable television systems in Oklahoma and Texas and nationwide satellite TV services will offer Saturday's (Sept. 23) Middle Tennessee at Oklahoma college football game on pay-per-view. Suggested retail price for the 6:00 PM CT kickoff from Norman, Okla. is $29.95.

For Blue Raider fans out of the Oklahoma and Texas viewing areas, you can see the game on DirecTV Channel 798 or on the Dish Network Channel 463. DirecTV or Dish Network subscribers can order with their remote, online or by phone. For DirecTV call 888-777-2454 and for Dish Network call 877-347-4778.

The game is being televised on pay-per-view by Big 12 Special Order Sports, FSN Southwest's pay-per-view division, because it wasn't selected for over-the-air broadcast or cable television coverage. Under Big 12 Conference TV rules, games not picked up for regular television distribution can only be televised live on pay-per-view, giving fans an opportunity to watch a game that they otherwise wouldn't be able to see.

The game will also be replayed on FSN Southwest throughout the network's coverage area (Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, parts of New Mexico) on Monday, Sept. 25 at noon CT.

Kansas City Chiefs radio announcer Mitch Holthus (play-by-play), former Oklahoma quarterback Dean Blevins (analyst), and New Orleans-Oklahoma City Hornets radio broadcaster Sean Kelley (sideline reporter) form the announcing team.
