XM Radio to be Exclusive Satellite Radio Home of the 2007 Bowl Championship Series (BCS) National Championship Game
College Football Fans Tune Into the XM Sports Nation Channel for Exclusive Satellite Radio Play-by-Play Broadcasts of the Tostitos BCS National Championship, AllState Sugar Bowl, FedEx Orange Bowl, and Tostitos Fiesta Bowl

WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- XM Satellite Radio will be the exclusive satellite radio home of the 2007 Bowl Championship Series (BCS) National Championship Game, offering college football fans complete play-by- play coverage on XM Sports Nation (XM Channel 144) as top-ranked Ohio State takes on number-two Florida on January 8.

Under an agreement with FOX Sports, XM will be the sole satellite radio network for the BCS National Championship, Allstate Sugar Bowl, FedEx Orange Bowl, and Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

"For college football fans, the only place to hear the BCS National Championship game on satellite radio is XM," said Eric Logan, executive vice president, programming, XM Satellite Radio. "XM has all the play-by-play action, plus the pre- and post-game coverage, and you can see the score in real time on your XM radio display screen. Being the exclusive satellite radio home of these BCS games is one more example of why XM is the ultimate destination for college football fans. With more than 5,000 live sporting events a year, XM has the best sports package in satellite radio."

"FOX Sports is excited to reach this exclusive satellite radio agreement with XM Radio," said Larry Jones, FOX Sports COO. "This partnership insures that millions of XM subscribers across the country will have access to the most important games of the college football season."

XM Radio offers 40 different sports channels among its 170-channel line- up. XM is the nation's number-one satellite radio company with more than seven million subscribers.

The BCS broadcasts on the XM Sports Nation channel begin January 1, the same day that the channel moves from XM Channel 143 to XM Channel 144.

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl

This is interesting.. Wonder how that affects the Notre Dame/Sirius contract, and if they are exaggerating here and only the OSU/FL game is exclusive.

Maybe the Notre Dame contract only covers the REGULAR season.

There is some corroberation in this thread, DaJ.

IMO, if it ain't NFL, it ain't real football.
