There are no two ways around this:
A lot of Iowa State fans are irritated about the television situation for Saturday night’s ISU-Texas game in Austin.
The game will be televised exclusively by Longhorn Network, available to relatively few of us in Iowa and anywhere but Texas. This was announced in June, but only now are many paying attention because of the importance of the game. Both teams are 5-2 in the Big 12, and Saturday’s winner will remain in contention for the Big 12 championship game.
You can see the game via satellite television on Dish Network (Channel 407) on The “America’s Top 120 Plus”, “America’s Top 200” and “America’s Top 250” packages.
It’s on Direct TV (Channel 677) on the “Direct TV Sports Pack” package.
Some cable providers that carry LHN: AT&T U-Verse, Charter Spectrum, Cox, Frontier Communications, Google Fiber, Suddenlink and Verizon Fios.
Streaming access to LHN is available nationally through PlayStation Vue.
Or, you could go to a bar that’s showing the game.
