Ball State to be Pay-Per-View

The University of Nebraska and FSN announced today that the Nebraska-Ball State football game on Saturday, Sept. 22 will be telecast via pay-per-view on participating cable systems and nationwide to satellite dish customers. Kickoff is scheduled for 11:30 AM CT from Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

Suggested retail price for residential purchase is $29.95.  Big 12 Special Order Sports, Fox Sports Net's pay-per-view division, will produce and distribute the telecast.  Additional information about how to purchase the telecast, including a list of participating cable systems and satellite providers, will be announced leading up to the game.  Further details will be posted on and, search: Midwest as they become available.


            The game is being televised on pay-per-view because it was not selected for over-the-air broadcast or cable television coverage.  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 Nebraska-Ball State game will be the ninth Nebraska football game distributed on pay-per-view, following: Oct. 12, 2002 vs. Missouri; Oct. 25, 2003 vs. Iowa State; Sept. 4, 2004 vs. Western Illinois; Oct. 2, 2004 vs. Kansas; Sept. 3, 2005 vs. Maine; Oct. 15, 2005 at Baylor; Sept. 23, 2006 vs. Troy; and Oct. 14, 2006 at Kansas State.  Nebraska won all eight of those games.
