"That's their home game, so they have all the media rights," Hamrick said of OU. "When you go on the road, you play when the home team wants you to play, unless you stipulate that in the contract. But nobody does that."
The only two games left are Sept. 21 at Virginia Tech, which will certainly air on some outlet, and the Sept. 7 home game against Gardner-Webb, which just as certainly will not. CBS Sports Network has the Herd three times, and the new Fox Sports 1 has MU twice.
The Herd's Nov. 23 game at Florida International is earmarked for either Fox Sports 1 or Fox Sports Net. Fox Sports 1 debuts Aug. 17 as a replacement for the Speed Channel, and Fox Sports Media Group says it will be immediately available in 90 million homes. The Oct. 12 game at Florida Atlantic is set for the existing Fox College Sports, probably the Atlantic channel.
There is speculation that MU is striking a home-and-home series with Penn State, beginning with a trip to Happy Valley this season and ending with a game in Huntington in 2014-15.
