BYU's rematch with Texas will be on primetime national TV, according to the Big 12's TV press release. Fox Sports 1 will cover the Cougars at the Longhorns on Saturday, Sept. 6, at 7:30 EDT.

The Cougars already have several games set for national TV. BYU plays UConn, Houston and Central Florida on ESPN, while the Boise State game will be on either ESPN or ESPN2. However, those games are on either Thursday or Friday. The Texas game is currently the only Saturday game BYU will have on primetime TV.

Also, the Cougars will play Middle Tennessee State on CBS College Sports, according to Conference USA's TV press release. The rest of the games on BYU's schedule are still to be determined, but at least one game will be on BYUtv. The rest will likely be on ESPN2 or ESPNU with the exception of the season finale against Cal. That game will probably be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
