FOX Sports Oklahoma has announced that Oklahoma's season opener vs. Akron on Saturday, Sept. 5, will be made available via a pay-per-view broadcast.
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. It will be available on a dedicated pay-per-view channel on participating Oklahoma program providers, and nationwide via participating satellite and Telco distributors. Pricing will vary by distributor.
Ron Thulin, Dave Lapham and Chad McKee will call the game, with coverage beginning at 5:30 p.m. CT with the "The SoonerSports.tv Pregame Show." Following the contest, "Sooner Sports Overtime" will have complete postgame analysis, along with live press conferences featuring OU coaches and players.
