Comcast Sports Net West To Broadcast Three Cal Football Games
July 16, 2008
BERKELEY - Comcast Sports Net West (CSN West) is scheduled to televise three California football games this fall, the school announced Wednesday. CSN West, Cal's local television partner, will broadcast the home game against Colorado State (Sept. 27, 3 p.m.) and the road games at Washington State (3:30 p.m.) and Arizona (7 p.m.).
For availability and channel locations visit west.comcastsportsnet.com and click the left-hand side link to 'Channel Locations.' CSN West will make games available in the Bay Area on a basic cable channel to be determined.
As previously announced, Cal's season-opening home game with Michigan State (Aug. 30) and its road game at USC (Nov. 8) will be televised nationally by ABC and will kick off at 5 p.m. (Pacific). The Maryland game (Sept. 13) will kickoff at 9 a.m. Pacific and will be televised nationally by either ESPN or ESPN2.
Other Golden Bear games have the potential to be picked up by the network through its 12 and six-day selection slots. CSN West could also air more games based on availability. Further information will be released when available.
In the first six years of head coach Jeff Tedford's tenure, 60 Cal football games have been televised; in the five years prior to that, just 35 Cal games were televised. National television broadcasts have more than doubled in that time. Last year, for the first time in school history, all 13 Golden Bear contests were televised.
Season and single-game tickets for the 2008 Cal Football schedule are currently available by visiting www.CalBears.com or by calling 1-800-GO-BEARS. In addition to the opener against Michigan State, other games on the Cal home slate include the 111th edition of the Big Game vs. Stanford, UCLA, Oregon, Arizona State, Washington and Colorado State.
