LOGAN, Utah - Utah State University Director of Athletics Scott Barnes announced Thursday that USU Athletics will have a new home beginning this fall as select football and basketball games will be televised live on KCSG Television in cooperation with Cis-Com Productions.
In conjunction with Aggie Sports Properties, the school's Athletics multimedia rights holder, Utah State is entering its third year of a four-year contract with Cis-Com Productions to televise numerous football and basketball games live.
During the 2011-12 academic year, KCSG TV will broadcast five Aggie football games and six basketball games. Its first football broadcast will be on Saturday, Sept. 24 when USU hosts Colorado State at 6 p.m. Other football games to be televised live on KCSG include home contests against Wyoming (10/8), San Jose State (11/12) and Nevada (11/26), and a road game at New Mexico State (12/3).
