Oklahoma Mulling Own Network

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Texas isn't the only Big 12 school looking

into whether it should start its own TV network.

Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione said Tuesday that the

Sooners are also interested in the possibility. He says the school

has already invested $3 million in a high-definition video facility

on campus.

He says the school doesn't have a time frame for the project and

is still deciding how the network would be made available to

customers and fans. He says research suggests the network could be

a success.

Texas agreed to stay in the Big 12 this week in part after

getting assurances that it retains local media rights, including

the possibility of a Longhorns network.
