UCLA Football's Initial 2013 Television Schedule Announced

The Pac-12 has released a partial television schedule for the 2013 Football season, including UCLA's games against Nevada, Utah and Washington.


The Pac-12 released portions of the 2013 Football Television schedule this morning. The gametimes and TV assignments that have been set and announced today consists of in-conference matchups and non-conference home games taking place in the first 3 weeks of the season, as well as all of the Thursday and Friday night games scheduled to take place among Pac-12 teams this season.

Three of UCLA's 2013 games are part of this initial schedule release, including the season opener at the Rose Bowl against Nevada. All times noted are Pacific.

  • Saturday, August 31: Nevada @ UCLA, 7pm (Pac-12 Network)
  • Thursday, October 3: UCLA @ Utah, 7pm (Fox Sports 1)
  • Friday, November 15: Washington @ UCLA, 6pm (ESPN2)

The Pac-12's blog has posted an early viewing guide for our opener against Nevada. That game is the only one being carried by the P12 Network that night, so there will be no issues with the various regional channels carrying or not carrying the game. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for folks who subscribe to DirectTV or cable providers that have not yet reached carriage agreements with the network.

As a non-conference away game, our September 14th game at Nebraska is not part of this release. For that one, gametime and television information will be announced as we get closer to the fall. That is not a typo on the Utah game - there will soon be a network called 'Fox Sports 1' (because "The Ocho" was already taken). No word on which network will have wider viewership access this fall - P12 Network or 'the 1'.

For our remaining games, start times will be set, and TV viewing information will be announced per the conference's existing policy:

... all remaining television game selections and start times, starting with week four (Saturday, September 21) and running through the final week of the regular season (Saturday, November 30) will be made 12-or six days in advance.

Additional non-conference road games will be televised as part of other conference or institution television packages. Those conferences and institutions will release their 2013 television schedule in the coming weeks. In all, every Pac-12 football game is expected to be televised this season.

The early Pac-12 TV schedule for the whole conference is available here. As well, take this as your first reminder of the summer to DirectTV subscribers to ask them to carry the network.
