DAVIS, Calif. - UC Davis home football games this season against Portland State on Sept. 10 and Cal Poly on Oct. 29 will be televised live by Comcast SportsNet, it was announced on Tuesday, marking the second consecutive season that Aggie football has appeared on the network.

Last season, UC Davis home games against Sacramento State and North Dakota State were featured while seven men's and women's basketball games and a baseball game were also shown on Comcast SportsNet. This year's athletics schedule is expected to increase throughout the academic year.

"We are excited once again to partner with Comcast SportsNet," said Larry Swanson, Associate Athletics Director for External Affairs. "As we continue our move to NCAA Division I, the visibility we receive by being televised is extremely beneficial."

The kickoff against Portland State on Sept. 10 at Toomey Field is being adjusted to 6:07 p.m. to accomodate the television coverage while the start time for the homecoming matchup against Cal Poly on Oct. 29 will be at 1:07 p.m.

Comcast SportsNet can be seen on Comcast channel 34 in the Sacramento area, on channel 656 on DirectTV and channel 409 on Dish Network. A complete listing of channels is available at www.ComcastSportsNet.com.

UC Davis opens the 2005 season on Saturday against No.7 New Hampshire.
