After much anticipation, Arizona State now knows the kickoff times and TV schedules for its upcoming matchups with the UCLA Bruins and the Arizona Wildcats.
No. 17 Arizona State will travel to No. 14 UCLA this Saturday to take on the Bruins with a chance to clinch the Pac-12 South. Kickoff is slated for 5 p.m. MST which means it will start at 4 p.m. locally in Los Angeles and 7 p.m. on the East Coast. The Arizona State-UCLA game will be broadcast on FOX to a national audience.
The following week, the Sun Devils will host the Territorial Cup against the University of Arizona and the Pac-12 Networks has selected the game for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff locally.
Though playing a high-profile rivalry game on the Pac-12 Networks is not an ideal scenario, the schools were fortunate that the game time was announced 12 days in advance (as opposed to six) to allow fans time to plan tailgates and viewing parties for those who do not get the Pac-12 Networks as part of their cable package.
If the Sun Devils fall to UCLA on Saturday, they could still have a chance to wrap up the Pac-12 South title with a win against Arizona. Arizona State would need help as the USC Trojans would have to defeat the Bruins to give the Sun Devils a shot at the crown.
