OSU's football season opener against Savannah State, which was televised by Fox College Sports, officially kicked off the partnership.
“This exclusive agreement helps reinforce FOX Sports Oklahoma as the pre-eminent sports television network in the state and allows us to showcase compelling Cowboys programming across the region on FOX Sports Southwest,” FOX Sports Southwest Senior Vice President/General Manager Jon Heidtk said in a release.
Texas Tech, TCU and Kansas State announced similar deals with Fox Sports earlier this year. Oklahoma also reached a larger deal with Fox Sports to air “Sooner Sports TV.” All four schools' multimedia rights are also managed by Learfield Sports.
The deal still allows OSU to retain web streaming rights on okstate.com for any event not selected to be televised on a Fox Sports platform.
