Four-Day Rose Bowl Coverage Event On FSN West 2 Begins New Year's Day

Dec. 30, 2005

FSN West 2 is preparing a four-day programming event to cover the most anticipated college football match-up of the 2005-06 season: the No. 1 USC Trojans and the No. 2 Texas Longhorns. Titled 'USC's Quest for History', FSN West 2's pre-Rose Bowl game features live reporting Jan. 1-3 from USC practice and the FSN West 2 Rose Bowl set in Pasadena. The coverage culminates in a live, 90-minute post-game show on Jan. 4 that will be simulcast on FSN West and West 2.

FSN West 2's Jim Watson hosts 'USC's Quest for History' alongside Pac-10 Football Analyst Petros Papadakis and reporters Lindsay Soto and John Jackson. A co-production with FSN Southwest, 'USC's Quest for History' covers the Longhorns equally with the help of FSN Southwest Big 12 Football Analyst Brian Jones and FSN Southwest reporters John Rhadigan and Dana Larson.

'FSN West 2 has covered every step of the Trojan 2005 season, and we're not about to stop now. We're proud to deliver Southern California football fans the in-depth USC access and team features they won't find anywhere else,' said Steve Simpson, vice president and general manager, FSN West and FSN West 2.

'From the unprecedented construction of a FSN West 2 set at the Rose Bowl to our partnership with FSN Southwest, 'USC's Quest for History' is shaping up to be the most comprehensive effort ever produced by a regional sports network for any single game in history,' said Tom Feuer, executive producer of FSN West and FSN West 2.

'USC's Quest for History' is a combination of live reporting from USC football practice, daily on-location coverage from FSN West 2's newly constructed Rose Bowl set in Pasadena, and player and team feature stories. Designed to further heighten the anticipation for this storied meeting of the Trojans and the Longhorns, 'USC's Quest for History' share the USC player stories even the most avid fan may not know as it introduces the Texan squad to Southern California football fans. Among the feature segments planned are: 'Vince Young and...'; 'The Road from Texas to Pasadena'; 'Unsung Trojan Heroes'; and, 'Secret Service: USC's O-Line.'
