The first nine games of the 2012 schedule have been established, but for the second consecutive year the final two weeks have been left open as "flex" games. The games that are of the most interest to MIAA fans, whether it be a game with championship implications, rivalry game, etc., will be chosen to fill the final two slots.

The games will once again be carried live on KSMO Channel 62 in the Kansas City area, as well as several cable systems throughout the MIAA geographical footprint. Complete information regarding where to watch the games will be made available as the season draws closer.

The MIAA is in its third year partnered with Kansas City-based Niles Media Group to provide production, distribution and media sales for the broadcast network. The MIAA Network, launched in the summer of 2010, showcased 10 football games as well as 10 basketball games in each of its first two years on television.

The 2012 MIAA football broadcast schedule kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 8, on the campus of defending national champion Pittsburg State. There, the Gorillas will host Central Oklahoma, which is in its first year in the MIAA. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. CT.
