FSN to carry two early season MU games on pay per view

Fox Sports Network work will televise Missouri’s football games against Southeast Missouri State and Nevada on pay per view.

The games will be available on participating cable systems regionally and nationally to satellite dish customers.

The suggested cost for each game will be $29.95. Information about how to purchase the telecasts, including a list of participating cable systems and satellite providers, will be announced later.

However, FSN indicated it expects the games to be offered by Time Warner, Charter, Mediacom and Suddenlink, along with DirecTV and Dish Network. The games will be carried on a special PPV channel and will not pre-empt regularly scheduled FSN programming.

The Southeast Missouri State game of Sept. 6 game will kick off at 6 p.m. in Columbia. Game time for the Sept. 13 game against Nevada is 11:30 a.m. at Memorial Stadium.

The PPV option means No. 6-ranked Missouri’s first three games of the season will be on television. The Tigers open the season at 7:30 Saturday night against Illinois in St. Louis. That game is set for a national ESPN telecast.
