As expected, the Sept. 22 game between the Oklahoma Sooners and Army Black Knights will be televised via pay-per-view with the broadcast being produced by FSOK. Additionally, the game will be available for free to military service members stationed outside the continental United States via the American Forces Network. As previously announced, the game will kick of at 6 p.m. CT.

It’s cool that the game will be free to service members abroad (plus Alaska and Hawaii), as Sooner fans stationed across the globe will have the opportunity to watch their team. However, it would be a bit cooler if they would allow all service members to catch this one at no cost. Having said that, I suppose it would be pretty tough from a logistical standpoint, as OU and each of the cable providers would have to have a system in place to screen military IDs (or whatever else it would entail) for access to an individual PPV broadcast.

Brendan Burke (play-by-play), Gary Reasons (color), and Christian Steckel (sideline) will call the game, which can be accessed worldwide on SoonerSports.tv for $54.99. Prices will vary between each cable provider and location (listed here).
