BOULDER ó The Colorado Buffaloes may not be “America’s Team,” a title which may very well belong just down the road to the Colorado Rockies right now, but there aren’t many if any football teams with more games on television at this point after CU’s next two games have been designated for broadcast.
CU officials found out late this past Saturday night that this week’s
Ron Franklin (play-by-play), Ed Cunningham (analyst) and Jack Arute (sideline reporter) are the announcers for the KU game.
On Monday, the Buffaloes were notified that the October 27 game at Texas Tech will be carried by ABC on a split-national basis, with kickoff set for shortly after 10:00 a.m. MDT.
This will bring the total to seven TV games for the Buffaloes out of the first nine weeks of the season, including six national broadcasts. The television arrangements have not been determined for two games yet (Nov. 3, Missouri; Nov. 10, Iowa State), but the regular season finale against Nebraska is already set for national broadcast by ABC from Folsom on Nov. 23.
The seven national broadcasts during the regular season will be a school record, besting the six in CU’s national championship year in 1990; the Orange Bowl that season was the seventh.
