K-State vs. Nebraska to Kick at 6:10 p.m.

MANHATTAN, Kan. Saturday’s Kansas State vs. Nebraska football game at Bill Snyder Family Stadium will kick off at 6:10 p.m., K-State Athletics Department officials announced Monday.

The game will be telecast on a pay-per-view basis by Big 12 Special Order Sports, the pay-per-view division of Fox Sports Net. The telecast will be available on cable systems throughout the states of Kansas and Nebraska as well in the Kansas City Metro area. Fans may also subscribe to the game on a pay-per-view basis via participating satellite systems nationwide.

Suggested retail price for residential purchase is $29.95. A list of cable and satellite providers that have agreed to offer the pay-per-view telecast will be available on k-statesports.com and FOXSports.com (search: Midwest) as it becomes available.

The K-State vs. Nebraska game was bypassed by the Big 12 Conference’s television partners for both over-the-air and cable television coverage, resulting in the pay-per-view telecast. Under Big 12 Conference television guidelines, games not selected for regular television distribution may only be televised on pay-per-view during a conference television window.

Participating cable and satellite providers will offer the telecast to their customers on a specially designated pay-per-view channel. The telecast will not pre-empt FSN’s regularly scheduled programming.

The Kansas State vs. Nebraska telecast is the first K-State football game distributed via pay-per view since the Wildcats’ 40-6 win over Kansas on Oct. 27, 2001.
