This marks the third time in as many years that the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags” />Kansas baseball team will be featured on FSN. Last season, the network, which is available to FSN’s regional affiliates, reaching more than 82 million cable and satellite TV homes nationwide, visited Hoglund Ballpark for a Kansas-KansasState game. The 2006 Big 12 championship game between KU and Nebraska was also televised on FSN.

This year’s FSN coverage includes five games during the regular season beginning with a showdown between Nebraska and Texas on March 29. Other games include Missouri visiting Texas A&M on April 27, Baylor visiting Texas on May 3 and a game to be determined on May 18. KU visits Manhattan on that date.

The Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship game will also be carried across the country on FSN on May 25.
