BU's Dec. 3 game against Texas will be televised on ABC at either 2:30 or 7 p.m., while start times for the remaining contests will be established as the Big 12 television partners make their selections six to 12 days in advance of the game.
Online ticket ordering for Parents' Weekend and Homecoming special events will also be available on Aug. 8 through individual websites for these two weekends. Event tickets and merchandise for Parents' Weekend can be found at www.baylor.edu/parentsweekend/buy and for Homecoming at www.baylor.edu/homecoming/buy.
