Undefeated Kansas State will be featured in prime time Saturday against Oklahoma State in a 7 p.m. kickoff on ABC, the Big 12 Conference has announced.
The contest against the Cowboys, which will be shown to a national audience, marks the Wildcats’ first appearance on ABC this season and the first since a 53-50 victory in four overtimes last year against Texas A&M.
The Big 12 Conference announced Monday that Kansas State’s home finale against Texas on Nov. 6 will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2 as part of the league’s television package.
The contest will kick off at 7 p.m. from Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
Following Monday’s selection by network officials, the Wildcats now have had seven of their first nine games on television, including three on the ABC/ESPN family of networks.
The Big 12 Conference office and its television partners announced broadcast selections for the weekend of Oct. 23, and after not selecting the Kansas State-Baylor match-up, Bears officials have set a 2:30 p.m. kickoff time at Floyd Casey Stadium.
In other Big 12 Conference games that day, Nebraska at Oklahoma State and Oklahoma at Missouri both will air on ABC.
Meanwhile, the Iowa State at Texas and Texas A&M at Kansas games will be televised by Fox Sports Net.
