The Maine-Nebraska college football game on Saturday, Sept. 3 will be telecast via pay-per-view on participating cable and satellite systems. 

 Big 12 Special Order Sports, Fox Sports Net’s pay-per-view division, will produce and distribute the telecast.  Suggested retail price for the 6:00 PM CT kickoff from Lincoln, Neb., is $29.95.  Fans interested in purchasing the telecast should contact their cable or satellite provider for ordering information and pricing.

 The game is being televised on pay-per-view because it was not selected for over-the-air broadcast or cable television coverage.  Under Conference TV rules, games not picked up for regular television distribution can only be televised live on pay-per-view.

 Participating cable and satellite providers will offer the telecast to their customers on a specially designated pay-per-view channel.  The telecast will not pre-empt FSN’s regularly scheduled programming.

 Veteran announcer Greg Sharpe, the television play-by-play voice of Nebraska basketball on FSN, calls the action alongside former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback/current NFL on FOX analyst Jayice Pearson.  Long-time Huskers radio voice Kent Pavelka will report from the Memorial Stadium sidelines for the telecast.

 The Maine-Nebraska telecast will be the fifth 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; and Oct. 2, 2004 vs. Kansas.  Nebraska won all four of those games.

A list of programming providers that have agreed to offer the telecast follows.  Additional providers will be announced later this week.  Further details will be posted on Huskers.com and FOXSports.com on MSN  (search: Midwest) as they become available.

 

To date, the following programming providers have agreed to offer the Maine-Nebraska pay-per-view telecast.  For availability in their specific areas, customers should contact their cable or satellite provider. Additional providers will be announced later this week.  Check Huskers.com and FOXSports.com on MSN  (search: Midwest) for updates.
