NCAA Football: Houston at Oklahoma Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Game day greetings, Sooner friends and fam! The obligatory pay-per-view game of the 2019 season is upon us. Following the win over the Houston Cougars last Sunday, the Oklahoma Sooners are set to face the Coyotes of South Dakota at home in Week 2.

This will be just the fifth FCS (including Division 1-AA as previously known) foe Oklahoma has faced since 1999, as Seth chronicled in detail earlier this week. While the game on the field is more a business transaction between two severely mismatched programs than a football game, the off-the-field battle of trying to find where/how to watch said game is of much more importance, especially to the citizens of Sioux Falls, S.D, it seems. Do not fret, Coyote friends. We have you covered.

For the single-game price of $54.99, the game will be broadcast by FOX Sports Oklahoma and available worldwide via pay-per-view. Digital cable and DirecTV subscribers can order the game from their devices or by simply calling their provider. Cord cutters can find the game on SoonerSports.tv and the SoonerSports apps for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Android. The OU-USD game will not be available on DISH, Sling or the SoonerSports app on Roku.

You can find more details on how to watch through the link below, including channel info per broadcast provider in your viewing area.

Head on down to the comments section for the game thread, where we’ll be asking questions, making predictions and discussing the day’s action with y’all.

Prediction

Not a whole lot for me to say here. These games are what they are. They present teams like Oklahoma a chance to, well, I don’t know, exactly. But I suppose there are three things I’m looking to see happen tonight.

Firstly, the Sooner starters being dominant on both sides of the ball, building a big lead and resting the second half. I’m also looking forward to seeing backup quarterbacks Tanner Mordecai and Spencer Rattler in some extended play, however many passes that actually entails. Finally, I’m ready to see five-star wideouts Jadon Haselwood, Theo Wease and Trejan Bridges and running backs Rhamondre Stevenson and Marcus Major get at least two quarters worth of reps.

Most importantly, I hope to see both teams finish the game injury-free and head into Week 3 healthy. For any Coyote fans or alumni who may have made the trip to Norman this weekend, we hope enjoy your time in Soonerland and make it back to The Mount Rushmore State safely. We Oklahomans are mostly a friendly bunch. Just make sure to avoid our editor Jack if he appears to be sunburnt.

Final Score: OU 62, South Dakota 7
