That elderly BYU fan who famously told football coach Bronco Mendenhall that home football games "aren't in the afternoons anymore" is going to have to take back his declaration for the second time this season.
It was announced Monday that the Oct. 13 Oregon State-at-BYU football game will kick off at 1:30 p.m. MDT.
The game will be televised by ABC as part of a split national broadcast.
ABC will show at least two other games according to region of the country, perhaps Illinois at Michigan and West Virginia at Texas Tech.
ESPN publicist Mike Humes tweeted out that: "Oregon State at BYU on Oct. 13 will be at 3:30 p.m. [ET] on ABC as part of a split national broadcast."
Kickoff time and television plans are also noted on the Pac-12 website here.
As a sidenote, that day's Utah-at-UCLA game will kick off at 1 p.m. MDT, a half-hour before BYU-OSU, and will be televised by FOX.
Oregon State (3-0) is ranked No. 14 in the country and will play Washington State this weekend, so the Beavers likely will bring an undefeated team to Provo. BYU (3-2) plays host to Utah State (4-1) on Friday.
