Two Big 12 Conference soccer matches will be featured on the eighth season of the NSCAA College Game of the Week on FOX Soccer, and one Conference contest will be broadcast on ESPNU this season. In addition, the Big 12 Soccer Championship game on November 4 will continue to be televised on FSN. Start time is still to be determined.
ESPNU will feature a meeting between Baylor and Oklahoma State Sunday, Oct. 14 at 4 p.m. in Stillwater, Okla. The OSU Cowgirls finished last season at the top of the standings, making a run to the Big 12 Championship game before advancing to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament. The Bears ended the Conference season in third place and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history.
The first Conference meeting between West Virginia and Oklahoma will be broadcast on FOX Soccer Thursday, Oct. 18 at 6 p.m. in Morgantown, W. Va. The Mountaineers were 17-5 overall last year and 10-1 in league play before falling in the first round of the NCAA tournament, the program's 12th straight postseason appearance. The Sooners (7-13 overall, 2-6 Big 12) finished the 2011 season with their second straight appearance in the Big 12 Championship, a first since the 2005 and 2006 seasons.
The Texas Tech women's soccer season finale showdown with OSU is slated for 7 p.m. on Friday Oct. 26, and as the showcase game of the week, will be televised live nationally by Fox Soccer. Lat season, the Red Raiders finished fourth in the Big 12 to match their best Big 12 finish in school history.
