USC-Cal Game To Be Televised On ESPNU
Aug. 6, 2012
Trojan fans can add another item to their television watch list thanks to ESPNU's planned broadcast of USC's Sept. 23 showdown with rival California. The ESPNU game goes along with two games scheduled for broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks.
"I think it's long overdue," USC head coach Jovan Vavic said of the opportunity to have water polo on TV. "It's really great for our sport and our university, and our players are really excited about it. Sports Illustrated just recently listed water polo as the hardest sport in the world, and now viewers will be able to see the power of our sport on TV."
Vavic and his Trojans have won five national championships in the past seven seasons, with the opportunity to add to its historic streak this season. All three games slated to be televised in 2012 are heated rivalry matchups. The ESPNU battle between USC and Cal presents a rematch of the 2010 NCAA final, which the Trojans won in overtime for their third straight national title.
For the next TV face-off, USC will visit another conference rival in a trip to Stanford on Oct. 6, and the regular-season will wrap up on Nov. 17 with a 2011 national championship rematch when UCLA comes to USC. Pac-12 Networks air times will be determined 6-12 days prior to each match.
