Good afternoon to everyone here on BN. Yes, gametime in the Arroyo Seco is nearly here. As B noted in this morning's Bruin Bites, it has been a long two weeks for the Bruins. After the missed opportunities in Palo Alto and Eugene, the team is back in the Rose Bowl to welcome the Bruin Nation home while taking on Colorado.
Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30pm pacific time. Today's TV broadcast being carried by Fox Sports 1 with Craig Bolerjack and Joey Harrington in the booth, and Bruin alum Ryan Nece reporting from the sideline. As usual, Chris Roberts, Matt Stevens and Wayne Cook will be calling the audio broadcast for AM570 and other UCLA radio affiliates, as well as satellite radio broadcasters Sirius (ch.139) and XM (ch. 190). TuneIn Radio will also be providing the audio feed free of charge through its smartphone/tablet apps and online via web browser.
Our previews of the Buffaloes, along with the rest of our coverage is linked here in our UCLA v. Colorado story hub. For the Colorado point of view leading to this afternoon's game, take a few minutes before kickoff and head over to our colleagues at Ralphie Report.
