MANHATTAN, Kan. - K-State's first three football games will air to a full national audience, including two appearances on the new FOX Sports 1 all-sports network, as the Big 12 Conference announced today television selections for the opening weeks of the season.
The Wildcats' sold-out August 30 season opener against North Dakota State, as previously announced, will be aired live on FOX's new 24/7 all-sports channel which will be carried in at least 90 million homes nationwide, while the network will return to Manhattan on September 7 for the Louisiana game and kick at 5:30 p.m.
The September 14 matchup with UMass will be broadcast exclusively on K-StateHD.TV with kickoff slated for 6:10 p.m. at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. K-StateHD.TV programming will begin at 5:10 p.m. with its K-State Gameday show featuring Brian Smoller and former Wildcat great and 2012 College Football Hall of Fame inductee Mark Simoneau.
To visit the home of K-StateHD.TV, or to subscribe to the service, go to www.k-statehd.tv. The subscription service remains a product of K-State's All-Access platform through the CBS College Network and has ranked No. 1 nationally in subscriptions among all institutions since its launch.
For those interested in subscribing to K-StateHD.TV, which features live game broadcasts as well as premium content such as original K-State shows, game replays and press conferences, the service is available for $9.95 per month and $79.95 per year.
Single-game tickets for the eight-game home schedule go on sale Wednesday as department officials announced earlier this week that all available public season tickets, as well as the North Dakota State and Iowa State games, are already sold out.
Though sellouts have been announced, visiting teams will have an opportunity to return unused tickets approximately one month prior to each game, while the K-State Ticket Office may release standing room or general admission tickets in the fall based on student pass sales and anticipated attendance. Fans should subscribe to the email alert list at k-statesports.com to be notified if those tickets become available.
