So I broke the news last night that ESPN had acquired the ASU-Oregon game this Saturday and I wanted to pass along some of the particulars that they released today....
Through an agreement with the Pac-10 Conference and Fox Sports Net, ESPN has added the conference showdown between undefeated #4 Arizona State and #5 Oregon to its national television schedule for Saturday, Nov. 3. ESPN will also offer the game – with coverage beginning at 6:40 p.m. ET – in high definition on ESPN HD. Mike Patrick, Todd Blackledge and Holly Rowe will call the game.Again....ESPN did an amazing job of bringing this top game to the masses. So much so that I won't even make fun of them for putting Mike Patrick on the call. Good job....America thanks you.
Originally scheduled to be only televised locally in Oregon, Arizona and Southern California, the matchup will be been by a national audience through the agreement of the two networks and the conference. ESPN will show the matchup across the United States except Arizona, Oregon, Southern California and New Mexico where Fox Sports Net will televise the game. The Oregon Sports Network will distribute the game in the state of Oregon.
With the addition of the game, Oregon State at #19 USC will be televised on ABC in the Saturday Night Football window at 8 p.m. (along with Florida State at #2 Boston College and Texas A&M at #6 Oklahoma) and South Carolina at Arkansas will be on ESPN2 at 8 p.m.
