MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- Four Kansas State football games were tapped to air nationally, including the Wildcats big showdown against the defending SEC Champion Auburn Tigers, as the Big 12 rolls out its early national television selections.

Their week 1 match up against Stephen F. Austin at Bill Snyder Family Stadium on August 30 will air only on K-StateHD.TV, the university announced on Thursday. The game is slated to start at 6:30 p.m.

The next week, Sept. 6, the Wildcats welcome Iowa State for their earliest Big 12 game since the leagues inaugural season in 1996. The game, which kicks off at 11:00 a.m., will air on Fox Sports 1.

Then, the whole football world's attention turns to Manhattan for K-State's show down against Auburn on Thursday, September 18. The 6:30 p.m. game is the first Thursday night game for the school since a 2010 matchup with then-league rival Nebraska.

The Big 12 Conference also said Fox Sports 1 has picked up the Cats November 20 game at West Virginia. It will kick off at 6:00 p.m. (CT).

According to K-State, its K-StateHD.TV "features live game broadcasts as well as premium content such as original K-State shows, game replays and press conferences." It costs $9.95 per month or $79.95 a year. You can click the link in the story to subscribe.
