Game times and broadcast information were announced for three 2014 University of Utah football games on Thursday, as the Pac-12 announced its TV plans for numerous league contests.
The highlight is the Utes' Thursday night conference matchup with Oregon State on Oct. 16. The game will be televised on Fox Sports 1, with an 8 p.m. MDT kickoff. Last year, Utah and the Beavers played a thrilling overtime contest at Rice-Eccles Stadium, a back-and-forth game Oregon State won 51-48.
The Utes' season opener against Idaho State on Thursday, Aug. 28, will begin at 5:30 p.m. and be televised on the Pac-12 Networks. It's the first of two games on the Pac-12 Networks that day, with the other matching Arizona State against Weber State.
Utah's game against Fresno State on Sept. 6 is set for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff and will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
Other TV plans will be announced at a later date.
"The Pac-12 will feature some of the top teams and most exciting student-athletes in the nation this season," Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said in a news release. "We are thrilled to offer fans the best television coverage of their favorite teams all season long on Pac-12 Networks, ESPN and FOX."
