Long Beach, Calif. - ESPN and the Big West conference have announced that the first "Wild Card" game of the television package between the partners will involve Long Beach State, as the January 16 game between UC Santa Barbara and the 49ers will be shown live on ESPNU. The start time for that contest will be 8 p.m.
That game is the first of five "wild card" games that ESPN has the option of picking between multiple Big West contests. There are three more dates, and Long Beach State is an option for each one remaining: February 1st at home against Cal State Fullerton, the return game against the Titans on March 1st, and Long Beach State's trip to Cal State Northridge on March 6.
With the ESPN choice, Long Beach State now has 16 games this season that are guaranteed to be shown nationally, with the possibility for as many as 20 prior to the postseason. The next television appearance for the 49ers is on Saturday, January 4, when Long Beach State travels to No. 23 Missouri on Fox Sports Net.
