The University of Missouri football game at Nebraska on Oct. 4 th has been chosen for a national cable telecast on ESPN, and will kickoff at 8 p.m. (central), as announced today by the Big 12 Conference.
The game will mark Mizzou’s second appearance on ESPN already this season, adding to the season-opening 52-42 win over 20 th -ranked Illinois on Aug. 30 th , that was shown by the network.
The Big 12 is now operating on its 12-day advance notification process for all future weekends, minus select games that were chosen prior to the beginning of the season (i.e. – Mizzou/Kansas on Nov. 24 th has already been selected to be televised on FSN at either 11:30 a.m. or 2:30 p.m.). What this policy means, is that two Mondays prior to each weekend, the league TV partners (ESPN/ABC, FSN, Versus) will make their selections known. On a couple of instances, the TV partners might opt for a six-day advance notification window, meaning the picks might not be made until the Sunday prior to the game.
