SEATTLE - The University of Washington's home football opener on September 8 against Boise State will kick-off at 12:30 p.m. and will be televised live from Husky Stadium by the school's local broadcast partner FSN Northwest. In addition, the UW's homecoming game against Arizona on Oct. 27 will kick-off at 12 noon with specific television plans scheduled to be announced during the summer.
Washington plays a total of 13 games this season and seven thus far have been pre-selected to be televised as part of either the Pacific-10 Conference or local broadcast packages. Each of the remaining games that have not been selected for television could be chosen either six or 12 days prior to kickoff. Washington was featured on live television in nine of its 12 games last season, the highest number of appearances since the 2000 squad appeared on television on 10 occasions.
