Big 12 announces early television picks

LUBBOCK, TX - Texas Tech's early-season football games at Texas and Houston will be televised nationally, the Big 12 Conference announced Monday. The league released an early list of television selections from the Big 12 Conference TV package, as well as game announcements from other conference packages.

The Red Raiders and Longhorns will meet at 7 p.m. CT on ABC in Austin on Sat., Sept. 19, and face Houston at 8:15 p.m. the following weekend in Houston on ESPN2. The two games are the earliest the Red Raiders have appeared on the ABC network family since 2002, when Tech opened the season at Ohio State and faced Mississippi at home on ABC.
