Either the sun or CBS didn’t want you to see the end of the KU-Mizzou game

KCTV Channel 5 is still getting killed on its Facebook page for the signal switch that cut away from the end of Saturday’s Kansas-Missouri Border War showdown.

There are a couple of explanations. First, blame the sun. KCTV5’s parent company (CBS) did, saying sunspots caused the game to cut away from Mizzou’s rally that ultimately came up four points short. CBS Sports’ Jerry Caraccioli told the Star that the “rare

occurrence” interrupted the network signal. (Apparently, the sun’s

rays sometimes align with television satellites and knock out the

network’s signal.)
