OSU-Cincy fourth Beav game to be televised

WITH THE ANNOUNCEMENT that Fox Sports Net will televise the game between Oregon State and Cincinnati on Sept. 19, the Beavers now have four early selections scheduled by the networks for broadcast.

FSN will televise the Saturday, Sept. 19 tilt between Cincinnati and Oregon State from Reser Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:45 p.m. PDT in Corvallis.

The Beavers and Bearcats are concluding their scheduled two-game series that started in 2007 with Cincinnati posting a 34-3 victory at Nippert Stadium.

Cincinnati last season was the 2008 Big East Conference champions and participated in the Orange Bowl last season.

Other games already made early TV picks -- ABC or ESPN will air the Oct. 24 game at USC. Meanwhile, ESPN will broadcast the Dec. 3 Civil War in Eugene.

College Sports Television, the college arm of CBS, will air the Sept. 12 game at UNLV in HD. (The aforementioned trio of games are also expected to be broadcast in HD.)

Several more dates remain available for early picks which will be determined at later dates. Also, ABC and FSN will select additional games during the course of the 2008 season, with announcements made six or 12 days in advance of the games.
