College football fans will need to do some channel flipping to keep up with all three of the state's major-college football teams Saturday. OU, OSU and Tulsa all end the season with national telecasts at 11 a.m.

OU travels to TCU on ESPN. Joe Tessitore, who called two state upsets last season — Baylor over OU and Iowa State over OSU — will broadcast the game with former Detroit Lions executive Matt Millen and reporter Shannon Spake.

OSU travels to Baylor on FX. Craig Bolerjack will call the game with former Colorado quarterback Joel Klatt and reporter Darius Walker.

TU hosts Central Florida in the Conference USA Championship on ESPN2. Dave Pasch, former Michigan quarterback Brian Griese and reporter Jenn Brown are the announcers.
