Just to make it clear, that’s FCS, Fox College Sports, not FSC, Fox Soccer Channel, doing this weekend’s UCLA-Washington State football game. DirecTV Channel 617, right between FUEL and The Mnt. network.
And, to be more specific, it’s FCS Pacific. Not Atlantic. Or Central. Just us.
In a season of Horned Frogs, Broncos, Yellow Jackets and Bearcats, you’ve officially buried the Bruins. Congratulations. Although, if you’re spinning the remote later in the evening, a replay will be shown on Prime Ticket at 7 p.m.
This is the time of the college football season when, if you’re not playing with the big boys, it gets tougher and tougher to track down your games.
USC’s game against Stanford, for example, would have most likely been a ABC regional game from the Coliseum. But then USC lost two weeks ago. Now they say it’s going to FSN West, since ABC would rather take Iowa-Ohio State, and ESPN snagged Arizona State-Oregon.
Although, on our TiVo menu, it says the Trojans-Cardinal game is on Prime Ticket. Again, one branch of the local net has flipped it over to the other side.
There’s more turnover here than (fill in your own punchline).
