SAN ANTONIO – The 2023 KSAT Pigskin Classic will kick off its second year with even more local high school football as the event expands from three to four games.

The games will be shown on KSAT 12 and all KSAT digital platforms on Aug. 25 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Aug. 26 from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

That means some ABC programming — including two Little League World Series games — will be pre-empted.

Here’s how to watch those programs.

Friday, Aug. 25, 2023

  • Will Trent can be viewed at 2 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 28 (Overnight Sunday into Monday)
  • 20/20 can be viewed at 2 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 26 (Overnight Friday into Saturday)

Saturday, Aug. 26, 2023

  • Little League World Series International Championship can be viewed on MeTV at 11:30 a.m.
  • Little League World Series US Championship can be viewed on MeTV at 2:30 p.m.
  • 2023 Cricket MEAC/SWAC Challenge Kickoff: South Carolina State Bulldogs vs. Jackson State Tigers game can be viewed on MeTV at 6:30 p.m.

You can double check which channel MeTV is for you at this link. The listings don’t include UVerse, but MeTV can be seen on Ch. 136 on Uverse. DirecTV carries a national feed of MeTV, not the local feed affiliated with KSAT, so unfortunately, the LLWS games will not be shown on MeTV for DirecTV customers.

Cable subscribers may be able to watch the programming live at

The winners from those games will go on to play in the 2023 Little League Baseball World Series Championship on Sunday. That game will be aired on KSAT 12.
