Since the launch of the Longhorn Network in 2011, the channel has carried a Big 12 game each season, but it has never carried a game of the magnitude of Saturday’s showdown between the No. 16-ranked Iowa State Cyclones and the No. 15-ranked Texas Longhorns at 7 p.m. Central.

So there will be increased interest in a game that may be hard to find for viewers around the country. Here’s how to watch it.
