From the University of Missouri
Mizzou's home football game vs. Western Illinois on Saturday, Sept. 17 will be telecast via pay-per-view on participating video providers. Kickoff for the contest is scheduled for 6 p.m. CT.
Information about how to purchase the telecast, including a current list of confirmed participating video providers, is attached. Updates will be posted on MUTigers.com and FOXSportsMidwest.com as they become available.
The game will be available in High Definition on participating providers. Suggested price for residential purchase is $39.95. The telecast will be available on a specially designated pay-per-view channel and will not preempt FOX Sports Midwest's regularly scheduled programming.
The pay-per-view telecast gives fans who can't make it to Faurot Field an option to watch a game that otherwise wouldn't be shown on television. The game is being televised on a pay-per-view basis because it was not selected for over-the-air broadcast or cable television coverage as part of the Big 12 Conference package. It will be produced and distributed by FOX Sports.
FOX Sports Midwest's Dan McLaughlin will call the play-by-play alongside former St. Louis Rams Pro Bowl defensive tackle D'Marco Farr. Todd Donoho will serve as sideline reporter.
To date, the following video providers have agreed to offer the Sept. 17 Western Illinois-Missouri pay-per-view telecast. For availability in their specific areas, customers should contact their video provider or check MUTigers.com or FOXSportsMidwest.com for updates.
