Oregon Gets Approval For WSU Live Telecast

Good news for Duck fans came this afternoon as the University of Oregon was approved late this afternoon to televise this Saturday's game between the Ducks and Cougars live from Pullman.

OFFICIAL MEDIA RELEASE FROM THE OREGON ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT

EUGENE – The University of Oregon has been granted a waiver for a live telecast of Saturday's Oregon-Washington State football game in Pullman, Wash., on Comcast SportsNet Northwest, according to joint announcement by the university's athletics department, IMG College and Comcast SportsNet.

Kickoff for the 2 p.m. game will be preceded by a 30-minute pre-game show that will air Saturday at 1:30 p.m., with the telecast to be shown in the state of Oregon and throughout the Portland metropolitan area on channels 37 and 737.

"This is the culmination of a lot of hard work on the parts of the Pacific-10 Conference office and Fox Sports Net," according to Oregon's Senior Associate Athletics Director Joe Giansante. "Without the help of both the Pac-10 and FSN, this likely would not have been possible."

The live telecast will replace the previously announced 6:30 p.m. broadcast, with the telecast still to be replayed at 11 p.m.
