Football and hoops at same time

This may interest only me, and admittedly, I haven't been a Bruin fan for as long as some of the geezers here. But looking at the preseason NIT schedule for hoops made me realize that UCLA football and basketball will be playing at the same time next week:

Football at Arizona State: Friday, Nov. 26 at 12:30 p.m. (FSN)
Basketball 3rd place NIT game: Friday, Nov. 26 at 11:30 a.m. (ESPN)
Basketball, NIT championship: Friday, Nov. 26 at 2 p.m. (ESPN)

Win or lose on Wednesday, we may be forced to be channel flipping and I can't ever remember football and basketball playing at the same time. So I wondered if there had ever been a time where this has happened and looked it up at the archives on the official site:


2009: Never played on same day
2008: Never played on same day
2007: Both played on Dec. 22, but hoops at 11am, football at 5pm
2006: Never played on same day
2005: Never played on same day
2004: Never played on same day
2003: Never played on same day
2002: Never played on same day
2001: Never played on same day
2000: Never played on same day
1999: Never played on same day
1998: Both played on Dec. 5, football during the day, hoops at night
1997: Never played on same day
1996: Never played on same day
1995: Never played on same day
1994: Never played on same day
1993: Never played on same day
1992: Never played on same day
1991: Never played on same day
1990: Never played on same day

At this point, I admittedly got lazy and gave up. I may revisit this later, but figured I'd save myself some trouble and ask if anyone remembers football and basketball playing at the same time before.

So what do we do next Friday if we can't make it to Tempe or New York? Do you focus on football, basketball, switch back-and-forth? I'll probably focus on football (end of season, with still most of basketball to go). And again, I realize I may be the only one amused by this.

Note: for years before 1998, I had to use the online media guides for football and basketball
