FSN Northwest To Televise Syracuse Game
June 24, 2010
SEATTLE - The University of Washington's September 11 home football game against Syracuse will kick off at 4:00 p.m. and will be televised live from Husky Stadium by the school's local broadcast partner, FSN Northwest.
Syracuse will be making just its second visit to Husky Stadium and its first since 1973. The Huskies and Orange last met in the Carrier Dome in the first game of the 2007 season, a 42-12 Husky victory in quarterback Jake Locker's debut.
The game is the fifth on the Huskies' 12-game schedule to be selected for television broadcast. Most likely, television arrangements for the remaining seven games will be made two weeks prior to each game.
Thanks in large part to the UW's relationship with FSN, the last 37 consecutive games have aired on live television, a streak that will extend to at least 41 games, as the first four contests of the 2010 slate have already been selected for broadcast.
Season tickets and four-game plans are currently on sale. You can purchase by calling the Husky Ticket Office at 206/543-2200 or by visiting online at www.GoHuskies.com.
