KABB-FOX 29 to broadcast Tulane contest
SAN ANTONIO — The Sinclair Broadcast Group, Nelligan Sports Marketing and Roadrunners Sports Network announced Friday that the Nov. 9 home contest against Tulane will be televised in the San Antonio market on KABB-FOX 29.
The first-ever meeting between UTSA and the Green Wave is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. at the Alamodome and it will be produced by Quarter Moon Productions. Jay Howard (play-by-play), Don Harris (analyst) and Jim Goodman (sidelines) will call the action.
KABB-FOX 29 is available in the San Antonio market on AT&T U-Verse (29/1029 HD), DirecTV (29), DISH Network (29), Grande Communications (11/811 HD), Time Warner Cable (11/111 HD) and over the air (29.1).
“We greatly appreciate the Sinclair Broadcast Group for carrying UTSA Football both with this home game against Tulane and the season-opening road game at New Mexico,” Athletics Director Lynn Hickey said. “Our program has come a long way in three short years. Playing our first season in Conference USA and having all 12 of our games televised this season is a testament to the tremendous job head coach Larry Coker and his coaches and players have done in establishing the program.“
“The management and staff of FOX 29, CW 35 and News4SA are thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver UTSA Football to their fans in San Antonio,” FOX 29/CW 35 General Manager Dean Radla said. “Our stations are committed to providing quality local programming to our viewers and we consider it a privilege to be associated with the UTSA Football program, especially in this first season in Conference USA.”
Today's annoucement means that all 12 Roadrunners games this season now are slated to be televised across eight different networks.
UTSA returns 50 letterwinners and a total of 20 starters (10 offense/8 defense/2 kickers) from last year's squad that posted an 8-4 overall record and 3-3 mark in their lone campaign in the Western Athletic Conference.
The Roadrunners will open their third campaign at New Mexico next Saturday, Aug. 31, and that game will be televised on KMYS-CW 35 in the Alamo City beginning with a one-hour pregame show at 6 p.m. (CT).
Both season and single-game (home and away) tickets currently are on sale for the program's first season in Conference USA in 2013. Fans can click here or call (210) 458-UTSA (8872) for more information on purchasing tickets.
