The Cowboys' third game, a home game against Louisiana-Lafayette at 11 a.m. Sept. 15, also has not been picked up for telecast.
In recent years, all of OU's games have been televised. OU officials are expecting to keep that streak alive by televising the Florida A&M game, which was a late addition to the schedule after a nonconference game against TCU was scrapped when the Horned Frogs joined the Big 12.
“I think it will be televised in some fashion,” said Kenny Mossman, OU senior associate athletic director. “I just don't know how at this point.”
FSN might be the outlet if OU can reach an agreement with the network to carry the bulk of its sports programming. In early January, Sports Business Daily reported that OU was close to announcing a deal with Fox Sports Oklahoma and Fox Sports Southwest that would place more than 1,000 hours of OU Network-branded programming in a combined 8.6 million homes of the two networks.
Seven months later, nothing has come of those negotiations.
“We're still weighing options,” Mossman said. “I don't know when that's going to come to fruition.”
