Lincoln - The Nebraska-Ball State football game on Saturday, Sept. 22 will be telecast via pay-per-view on participating cable systems and nationwide to satellite dish customers.  Kickoff is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. CT from Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

Suggested retail price for residential purchase is $29.95.  Big 12 Special Order Sports, Fox Sports Net’s pay-per-view division, will produce and distribute the telecast.

FSN Nebraska basketball television announcer Greg Sharpe will call the play-by-play alongside former Husker Matt Davison as analyst, with FSN’s Stacy Paetz as sideline reporter.


The Nebraska-Ball State game will be the ninth Nebraska football game distributed on pay-per-view, following: Oct. 12, 2002 vs. Missouri; Oct. 25, 2003 vs. Iowa State; Sept. 4, 2004 vs. Western Illinois; Oct. 2, 2004 vs. Kansas; Sept. 3, 2005 vs. Maine; Oct. 15, 2005 at Baylor; Sept. 23, 2006 vs. Troy; and Oct. 14, 2006 at Kansas State.  Nebraska won all eight of those games.
