FSN Arizona Set to Televise Pivotal ASU-Oregon Showdown
Oct. 30, 2007
With an undefeated record of 8-0, Arizona State University football is on a roll, and FSN Arizona is the only place where Sun Devil fans living in Arizona and New Mexico will be able to watch fourth-ranked ASU take on fifth-ranked Oregon in what many analysts are calling college football's biggest game of the year. FSN Arizona will again produce the game in High Definition, with coverage from Eugene, Ore., beginning this Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
The game can be seen in Arizona, New Mexico and in other regions on the West Coast only on FSN Arizona, FSN West and FSN Northwest. Although ESPN has picked up the telecast for national broadcast, it will be blacked out on ESPN in these regions, since FSN owns the Pac-10's local television rights in these areas.
In addition to FSN Arizona's telecast, fans living in Southern California, Las Vegas and Hawaii will be able to watch the FSN Arizona production only FSN West, while fans in Oregon can see it only on FSN Northwest. The game will also be televised nationwide on Fox College Sports via its FCS Central channel.
Trey Bender and Juan Roque will handle the call of the game for FSN Arizona, while Jody Jackson will report from the sidelines at Autzen Stadium. In Arizona, here are the systems and channel locations in which FSN Arizona's HD telecasts can be found: Cox channel 721, DirecTV channel 95, DISH channel 365, Comcast (Tucson) channel 258, Qwest (Tempe) channel 329 and Western Broadband channel 726.
This huge game will then be condensed into a 30-minute program on Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 7 & 10 p.m. when Sun Devil Rewind - Arizona State at Oregon airs on FSN Arizona. The show looks back at Saturday's game with exclusive field level camera angles and sideline access while using the radio calls from Tim Healey & Jeff Van Raaphorst of the Sun Devil Sports Network.
And for fans wanting to see how Arizona State stands in the latest BCS rankings, FSN Arizona has it covered each week with bookend programs breaking down the championship contenders. Each Friday at 6 p.m., BCS Breakdown host Tom Helmer along with analysts Eddie George, Petros Papadakis and Gary Barnett and reporter Charissa Thompson preview the weekend's upcoming games and discuss which contests will have the biggest impact on the BCS standings.
Then on Sundays at 10:30 p.m., the crew reconvenes to take a look at the latest edition of the BCS rankings on the BCS Ratings Show. Helmer, Papadakis and Barnett look at the college football landscape to see how Saturday's games affected the newest BCS ratings
