UT to have a national TV audience

Four of the University of Toledo's football games in 2006 are scheduled to be televised nationally, including three consecutive weeks in November.

Kansas (Sept. 15), Northern Illinois (Nov. 7), Ball State (Nov. 14) and Bowling Green State University (Nov. 21) will each be shown on ESPN2. The Mid-American Conference schedule was released yesterday.

UT opens the season Aug. 31 at Iowa State, the beginning of a home-and-home series. The Rockets travel to Western Michigan the next weekend ,with the home opener at the Glass Bowl against Kansas the week after. UT rounds out its non-conference schedule with NcNeese State at home on Sept. 23 and at Pittsburgh on Sept. 30.

The MAC Championship game is currently scheduled for Nov. 30 at Ford Field in Detroit but could move to Dec. 3 depending on the Detroit Lions' schedule.
