FOOTBALL: NSU to play 2 games on MIAA Network

TAHLEQUAH — The Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association announced Wednesday the Northeastern State football team will be featured twice on the MIAA Network this upcoming season.


The RiverHawks will first be featured as the MIAA Game of the Week in their home opener against Fort Hays State at 2 p.m. Sept. 13. NSU will then be broadcast on the network at 2 p.m. Oct. 18 in a road contest at Missouri Southern State.


This will mark the third and fourth times that Northeastern State football will be shown on the MIAA Network. NSU is 0-2 in its first two appearances, having lost contests at Northwest Missouri State (66-6 on Sept. 29, 2012) and home to MSSU (17-14 on Sept. 14, 2013).


There will be 11 games over the course of the season broadcast on the network, which will begin Sept. 4 when defending NCAA national Championship NWMSU hosts Nebraska-Kearney.


During the next 10 consecutive Saturday's, the MIAA TV Network will travel to a different campus each week featuring several key matchups in determining who will win the conference championship.


The MIAA TV Network has left the last Saturday (Nov. 15) open as a "flex" game in order to be able to select a game of significant fan interest and impact on the conference championship.


All 11 games will all be carried on KSMO-TV in Kansas City, Cox Communications KS 22, and several other outlets across the MIAA footprint. A complete listing of where the MIAA TV Game of the Week can be seen will be announced in the near future.

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
