Washington's road football game at California on Oct. 23 is not scheduled for a network broadcast but, thanks to the efforts of Fox Sports Net Northwest, the game will be shown live in Husky Stadium on the HuskyTron video board. The broadcast will begin at 12:30 p.m. There will be no admission charge to watch the game in Husky Stadium.
The game between Washington and California was not selected for a live broadcast by either ABC Sports or Fox Sports Net. A provision in the Pacific-10 Conference's television agreements with ABC Sports and Fox Sports Net allows for an on-campus broadcast of a game that has not been selected by either of the league's television partners.
Fox Sports Net Northwest will produce the game with Todd Pickett and Sonny Sixkiller calling the action. The game will be relayed to Husky Stadium by a fiber optic transmission line where it will appear on the HuskyTron video board.
"We're excited to be able to present this opportunity for our fans to watch the game from Husky Stadium," said Washington athletic director Barbara Hedges. "This is just another great benefit of the HuskyTron video board. We really want to thank Fox Sports Net Northwest for their efforts to produce this event."
