Every Big 12 team has at least one game sold independently of the league TV deal until this deal is up after next fall.

This was OU's and their media partner for that game plus a bunch of non-fb stuff is ESPN+ like everyone not named UT. OU had FSN for a while before that.

So it was y'all and Arkansas State that were the only candidates for OU's tier three game.

Your game in that 6PM slot would be up against Oregon-Tech on FOX, UT-Bama on ESPN, UCF-Boise on FS1, and Wisconsin-Washington on ABC as far as Big 12 media partner channels go. There's a McNeese at Florida on ESPNU that might have made sense to swap out.

Arkansas State is at noon on the more spread out Labor Day weekend as more games go to Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. So less competition in the time slot. Competing games on ESPN or FOX channels are Colorado-TCU, UVA-Vols, USU-Iowa, and LaTech-SMU.

So put OU on ESPN in the week when they could and chose not to when they have UT-Bama on ESPN.

Could be a broadcaster decision.
Could be OU wanting a night game that week and pushing for ESPN+ to have that control.

Either way it says less about SMU than it does about either OU wanting a schedule option or ESPN having UT-Bama and building around that IMO.
