Two Duck Games On National TV

EUGENE – The University of Oregon's Sept. 8 football game at Michigan, as well as it's Oct. 27 home game with USC, have been selected to be televised nationally, according to recent announcements by the Pacific-10 Conference, ABC Sports and Fox Sports Net.

Kickoff for the Ducks' home game with USC has been set for noon to accommodate a FSN telecast. The unconventional start time is because the game will be the first of three Pac-10 contests televised by Fox Sports Net that day, with UCLA and Washington State to follow at 3:30 p.m. (PDT) and California and Arizona State to air at 7 p.m.

Oregon also is scheduled for a national ABC telecast when it travels to Ann Arbor, Mich., on Sept. 8, with the 12:30 p.m. (PDT) game currently slated to be the only college football game ABC Sports will air that day.

That increases the number of Oregon games already selected for television to four. The Ducks' Nov. 15 game at Arizona will begin at 6 p.m. (PST) as part of the league's new Thursday night package on ESPN, while the Dec. 1 Oregon-Oregon State game in Eugene will begin at 1:30 p.m. (ESPN2).

All other Oregon home games are tentatively scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m., depending on changes to accommodate future television selections. Two television windows remain open on Sept. 29 when the Ducks host California, and three opportunities exist on Oct. 13 for Oregon's home game against Washington State. Those game times will not be finalized until six or 12 days prior to kickoff, as part of the Pac-10's television agreement with ABC Sports and Fox Sports Net.
