SIRIUS Satellite Radio Kicks Off College Football Season With Broadcast of USC-Virginia Tech Game

The Leader in Satellite Radio Sports to Deliver Exciting Matchup Between Pac-10, ACC Teams; Sets Stage for More College Football Programming

NEW YORK, Aug. 24 --
SIRIUS, the premium satellite radio provider known for delivering the very best in commercial-free music and sports programming to cars and homes across the country, today announced the first of an extensive package of college football games with a live play-by-play broadcast featuring the No. 1-ranked University of Southern California Trojans of the Pac-10 vs. the Virginia Tech Hokies of the Atlantic Coast Conference on Saturday, August 28.

SIRIUS, the Official Satellite Radio Partner of the USC Trojans, will carry the game at 7:45pm on SIRIUS channel 123, featuring USC announcers Pete Arbogast and Paul McDonald. More details regarding SIRIUS' exciting package of college football programming will be announced shortly.

USC head football coach Pete Carroll said, "I've seen how well SIRIUS has approached their NFL coverage and I've enjoyed being on their broadcasts, and I look forward to them bringing USC football to the whole country. SIRIUS Satellite Radio is the state of the art in the media today."

SIRIUS also is the Official Satellite Radio Partner of the NFL and features SIRIUS NFL Sunday Drive, the only satellite radio programming package that lets subscribers choose from a full slate of live radio game broadcasts from around the NFL each Sunday.

Interesting. Coach Carroll's comments indicate that the NFL deal is not only good for getting subs, it also has value in getting content.

This is good! USC is number one and people love to jump on bandwagons.

Sirius also carried about 90 minutes of pre-game as well, which I appreciate. I didn't listen for post-game.

For a while I was flipping between the (co)National Champion Trojans, and the Super-Bowl Champion Patriots...all the winners are with Sirius!
