From the University of Missouri
The University of Missouri's 2012 football season opening game – its first-ever as a member of the Southeastern Conference -- will be televised via pay-per-view on participating video providers. Kickoff for the Sept. 1 contest vs. Southeastern Louisiana is scheduled for 6 p.m. (central time).
The game will have other historical ties, as it will mark the debut of the brand new FieldTurf surface at Faurot Field, as well as the first look of Mizzou's new uniforms.
The game will be produced in High Definition. Suggested price for residential purchase is $39.95. The telecast will be available on a specially designated pay-per-view channel.
Information about how to purchase the telecast, including a list of participating providers, is listed below. Updates will be posted on MUTigers.com as they become available.
The game will be available on pay-per-view in the state of Missouri and spillover markets. Per SEC television contracts, when an SEC team does not have its game selected for live TV by one of the SEC's television partner it is permitted to offer that game live on a statewide basis (and in spillover markets) on pay-per-view. Outside Missouri and spillover markets, the game will be distributed on ESPN GamePlan.
Veteran play-by-play announcer Dave Armstrong will call the action, with Mizzou great and former All-Big 12 quarterback Corby Jones as analyst. Todd Donoho serves as sideline reporter.
The telecast will be produced and distributed by FOX Sports.
