Big XII Men's Basketball TV Schedule Released

Part of the TV schedule was released over a month ago, and you can find the ESPN article on it here.

So of the 90 conference games:

  • 30 of them are on ESPN / ESPN 2
  • 32 are on the Big 12 Network / ESPN3
  • 20 of them are on ESPNU
  • 1 of them is on ESPNEWS
  • Doing a little research, there is also one game on CBS

That leaves 6 games for third-tier broadcasting, so that's pretty good for the conference. Breaking it down by teams, in order of last year's standings:

  1. Kansas - 0 3rd-tier game (1 CBS, 11 E/E2, 3 B12/E3, 3 EU)
  2. Kansas State - 0 3rd-tier games (6 E/E2, 8 B12/E3, 4 EU)
  3. Oklahoma State - 0 3rd-tier games (1 CBS, 10 E/E2, 3 B12/E3, 4 EU)
  4. Iowa State - 0 3rd-tier games (7 E/E2, 7 B12/E3, 4 EU)
  5. Oklahoma - 1 3rd-tier game (7 E/E2, 6 B12/E3, 4 EU)
  6. Baylor - 0 3rd-tier games (9 E/E2, 5 B12/E3, 4 EU)
  7. Texas - 4 3rd-tier games (4 E/E2, 5 B12/E3, 4 EU, 1 EN)
  8. West Virginia - 2 3rd-tier games (4 E/E2, 7 B12/E3, 5 EU)
  9. Texas Tech - 2 3rd-tier games (1 E/E2, 11 B12/E3, 3 EU, 1 EN)
  10. TCU - 3 3rd-tier games (1 E/E2, 9 B12/E3, 5 EU)

So Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Iowa State, and Baylor have all of their games televised on 1st or 2nd tier, which is cool.

However, if you look at this, it seems really strange that Texas has four games on third tier, considering they were a lot better than the three teams below them last year (not to mention the following they have).

Then I did a little more research. Yep, of the six games on third-tier, four of them are on LHN. Now I don't want to suggest that ESPN has a conflict of interest here, however . . .

The two remaining games are Tech at TCU, and TCU at West Virginia. Tech has that game listed as a TV game broadcast by TBD, while TCU doesn't show it as a TV game at all. The WVU game is broadcast by ROOT Sports.

I'm still digging on the women's TV schedule, but there are 19 games on the Fox networks, 4 are on ESPN 2, and 7 on LHN. I haven't researched enough to figure out what's going on with the remaining 50 games, although I'm sure many of them won't be on TV at all.
