The Big 12 has announced that the Cyclones-Jayhawks game will kick off at 2:30 Central time and it’ll broadcast on Fox Sports Networks. A number of Kansas football games has been on Fox’s regional sports networks, and this is unsurprisingly another matchup on there.

For those unfamiliar to the FSN regional networks, this means that the game will be on Fox Sports Midwest and Fox Sports North, whichever regional network you get access to on cable or satellite in Iowa. As a friendly reminder, CSN Chicago no longer shows regional games produced by Fox.

This game will be sandwiched between two major Big 12 football games. Baylor-Oklahoma and Kansas State-TCU have significant Big 12 and national title implications. Those games have been optioned for a six-day pick and will either be kicking off at 11:00 AM Central time on Fox Sports 1 or 6:30 PM Central time on Fox.

If the Wildcats and Horned Frogs remain at the top, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see that game in primetime. Who would have thought that KSU-TCU would end up being such a significant game in the Big 12 before the season?

Not to be left out, at the same time ISU and Kansas do battle, West Virginia will be at Texas. That game will be televised on FS1.

All four Big 12 games in Week 11 are on Fox networks with ESPN just having a handful of conference games to pick for the remainder of the season. Texas Tech and Oklahoma State will be on a BYE that week.
