USU football: Utah opener to be first game aired on new Fox sports channel

Utah State football's season opener with the Utes isn't just the start of college football for Utah - it will debut the sport on a new national network.

The Pac-12 announced Wednesday the Aug. 29 game will kick off at 6 p.m MT on Fox Sports 1, a new multi-national, 24-hour sports channel developed to compete with ESPN that will debut in August to an estimated 90 million homes.

When the Aggies visit Utah, it will be the first college football game on the channel. It marks one of the highest-exposure games of the season for the Aggies yet announced.

Utah State could make a big splash to start the season by beating the Utes on their home turf. But Utah will be motivated to make up for last season's defeat in Logan.

The Aggies will be a larger presence on television in the 2013 season in the past. Five games are scheduled to air on CBS Sports Network, one on ESPN, and one on an ESPN Network.

Utah State still has two more game times that have yet to be announced: Sept. 21 at USC, and Nov. 9 against UNLV.
