Texas State negotiates media rights for football playoff telecast

The Texas State Bobcats, 2008 Southland Conference Champions, take on the University of Montana Grizzlies in Missoula in a NCAA Division I FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) playoff game. Tune in this Saturday, November 29, for the 1 p.m. kick-off on the following media outlets. The game will be available on Time Warner Cable, radio and online broadcasts will air the game.”Many people told us how tough it was to travel to Montana on such short notice during the holiday weekend so I felt it was important to bring the Bobcats back to our loyal fans,” said Texas State Athletic Director Larry Teis. “I want to thank the NCAA, the University of Montana, and all our sponsors who made this possible. We are very excited that we will be able to reach over 700,000 households in Texas with our television broadcasts.

These sponsors include: Texas State Athletics, Texas State University Marketing, Time Warner Cable, Brown Distributing, H-E-B, Pizza Hut and Sac-N-Pac Corporation.

“We have a lot of young men’s families from Texas State who will not be able to make the trip to Missoula,” said head coach Brad Wright. “So, it is great that we are able to bring the game to our players’ families and future Bobcats.”
