Bearcats On National ABC TV?
If the UC Bearcats keep on winning, they could end up on a national ABC TV game next month, says Kirk Herbstreit, ESPN and ABC college football analyst. Has UC football ever been on national broadcast TV?
On WLW-AM's "SportsTalk" last night, Herbstreit told Paul Daugherty that his preliminary TV schedule for possible national ABC broadcasts with Brent Musburger included UC's Nov. 3 game at the University of South Florida in Tampa. USF (5-0) is No. 5 in the AP and USA Today polls; UC (6-0) is No. 15 in the AP poll, and No. 17 at USA Today. Game time for the USF-UC game is "to be announced," which means it will be determined by TV coverage.
Herbstreit, a suburban Dayton native (Centerville), says ESPN's "College Game Day" Saturday will do a feature on UC quarterback Ben Mauk. "Starting Saturday, people are going to see a little bit more about the UC program," Herbstreit said.
I know UC has played often on ESPN, but have the football Bearcats ever been on national broadcast TV?
