NORMAN, Okla. -- For the first time in the history of the Sooner soccer program, a home game will be televised from John Crain Field at the OU Soccer Complex. The Sooners’ Big 12 opener against Bedlam rival Oklahoma State on Friday, Sept. 30 will air on a tape-delayed basis on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 3:30 p.m. on Cox Channel 3 (703 HD) in Oklahoma City and Tulsa.

Sooner Sports Properties and Sooner Vision HD will put on the production with Toby Rowland, the voice of the Sooners, providing the play-by-play from Norman alongside color analyst David Bassity, Assistant Director of Athletics Communications at the University of Oklahoma.

“We are excited to showcase the in-state rivalry and our facility throughout the state,” said OU Head Coach Nicole Nelson. “Our program continues to take steps in a positive direction, whether its been winning on the field, landing top recruits or improving our first-class facility, and this is another opportunity to keep the program moving forward.”

The Sooners and No. 2 Cowboys met earlier this season on Friday, Aug. 26 in Stillwater. OSU won that non-conference game, 1-0, which did not count towards the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Bedlam Series standings.

Prior to the season, OU announced that ESPNU will televise the Sooners’ home matchup with Missouri on Sunday, Oct. 16 live on national television. That game is set for a 1 p.m. start in Norman.

Oklahoma is in action tonight in the final non-conference game of the season at New Mexico. The game is slated to start at 6 p.m. CT at the UNM Soccer Complex in Albuquerque, N.M.
