It probably should be mentioned that OU has their new contract with FSSW, so Sooner FSSW regional games will be shown on all FSSW affiliates and probably move any evening FSN games to FSSWP (unless Rangers baseball preempts it and moves the Sooners to FSSWP).

Yeah, still waiting for that to be officially announced by either FSSW or the Sooners. As I understand it, the time will be branded as the Sooner Network.

There is a Rangers conflict that night in addition to the UTEP-Ole Miss game regionally televised on FSN in some areas served by FSSW like Louisiana, southeastern Texas (ie. A&M areas) and El Paso.

Should be only one OU football game per season.

It will probably end up as follows:
FSSW (Oklahoma)- Sooner Network

FSSW+ (Oklahoma)- Texas Rangers Baseball

FSSW (North & West Texas except El Paso)- Texas Rangers Baseball

FSSW (El Paso & Louisiana)- SEC Regional Network

FSSW+- Sooner Network (North & West Texas minus El Paso)

FSSW+ (El Paso & Louisiana)- Texas Rangers Baseball

FS Houston- Houston Astros Baseball

FS Houston+- Texas Rangers Baseball

The Texas Rangers contract calls for all games within the Rangers broadcast area to appear always on FSSW, not FSSW+, which is why Oklahoma would be bumped to the + in the state of Texas. Despite the Sooners being in the Rangers broadcast area, the Rangers contract for games on FSSW is only specified for the North & West Texas areas, though UTEP should be able to find an exemption for that UTEP/ Ole Miss game.
