Football's TV Slate Could Get Some Needed Help

owltvlogo20091Last year’s football TV schedule boasted six games making the tube. So far for the upcoming season there are only four.

Fortunately, FAU’s Owl TV has plans to help bridge the gap if possible.

The station has received a boost in funding for the 2010-11 school year and will seek to utilize part of  the new found monies on the coverage of FAU’s football road games.

Particularly, they are hopeful logistics will be worked out for the Owls' away games at Louisiana-Monroe and Western Kentucky.

“Athletics has plans for Owl TV to provide a point to point broadcast for away games that we can secure the rights for them to produce”, said FAU Sports Information Director Katrina McCormack.

Last season, Owl TV broadcast their first road football game at Legion Field as FAU took on UAB in a lopsided game that saw the Owls come away with a stinging 56-29 loss.

The game was shown in a meeting room within FAU’s University Center free for students and with a $5.00 fee for non students. However, the event was nominally attended.

This year, Owl TV says it will partner with FAU eatery Cayote Jack’s to air the station’s feeds if rights are secured, and there will be no charge for admission for all attendees.

“The concept was well received and we hope for the opportunity to provide this type of coverage again”, McCormack said.

Games secured would also be able to be viewed on FAU’s Jupiter Campus.
