WAC schedule should be released next week

HA Note: “Whether the University of Hawai’i’s football game at San Jose State is moved to a Friday to accommodate ESPN is one of the remaining pieces of the puzzle to be resolved before the Western Athletic Conference announces its 2009 schedule.”

HA Note: “The San Jose State game — probably in either October or November — is said to be one of six TV possibilities for the Warriors still under consideration. “That’s one of the games still being discussed,” said someone with knowledge of the situation but who has declined to be identified because negotiations are on-going.”

About games on ESPN and ESPN2, WAC associate commimssioner Jeff Hurd said that he belives UH will:
“likely get two to four” (HA)

HA Note: “There are additional possibilities on ESPNU. The WAC’s contract with ESPN assures a minimum of 10 conference games spread over ESPN and ESPN2 plus additional games on ESPNU.”

Hoping that the WAC schedule is done next week, WAC commisionser Karl Benson said:
“We hope to have this done next week. There are a few details remaining to be worked out.” (HA)
