Football Announces Games Times and Television Designations for Rhode Island, Ohio and Texas Tech
LAWRENCE, Kan. – The Big 12 Conference released the television broadcast assignments for the first three weeks of the 2016 college football season and specialty date games, with Kansas being tabbed for television in each of its first two games, along with its conference opener.
The Jayhawks play at American Athletic Conference member Memphis the third week of the 2016 college football season and that game time and broadcast designation will come from the AAC.
Kansas, under the direction of second-year head coach David Beaty, will open the 2016 football season with a home game versus Rhode Island on Saturday, Sept. 3. The KU-Rhody game will be played at 6 p.m., with a live broadcast on the Jayhawk Network in the state of Kansas and the Kansas City metro area and is available outside of the state lines to a national audience on ESPN3.
