OU football: Opener set for pay-per-view, two other kickoff times announced

NORMAN — OU's season-opener against Missouri State will be on pay-per-view.

The game, Sept. 12, will kick off at 6 p.m.

Two other Sooners kickoff times — Sept. 26 vs. Kansas State and Oct. 10 vs. Texas in Dallas — were announced as well.

Both will kick off at 11 a.m. and be televised on Fox.

The Sooners' third-tier television rights contract gives Fox Sports rights to one home game per season. While not contractually obligated to be a pay-per-view game, that has been the case throughout the contract.

Pricing for the game will vary by distributor. Cox has already announced it would charge $39.95 for the game and the one-hour pregame show.

Dish and Sling are not expected to carry the game.

Coverage begins at 5 p.m. with "Sooner Sports Game Day."

Fans can also subscribe to SoonerSports.tv to watch online and through the SoonerSports apps on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Android. The game is available on its own for $54.99 or can be paired with an annual subscription for $79.99. The game will not be available on the SoonerSports Roku app.

The Red River Showdown is once again a morning kickoff. Including this year's matchup, 11 of the last 13 OU-Texas games will have kicked off at 11 a.m.

Without Big Ten games to fill morning television spots, the Sooners could have several other 11 a.m. starts this season.
