Portland, San Diego Women's Soccer Programs To Be Featured on Fox Soccer Channel

Aug. 17, 2010

SAN BRUNO, Calif. --- With the sixth season of NSCAA College Game of the Week telecasts on Fox Soccer Channel starting Sept. 3, Friday nights become the premier viewing destination for fans of NCAA Division I soccer.

Under an ongoing agreement with the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), Fox Soccer Channel's live and exclusive NSCAA College Game of the Week telecasts include eight women's and 12 men's matches.

The West Coast Conference has once again partnered with the NSCAA and Fox Soccer Channel to be a part of this season's Game of the Week telecasts.

On Friday, October 22 at 8:00 p.m., the University of San Diego women's soccer program will play host to the University of Portland at Torero Stadium. The Pilots, who were picked to win the conference in the 2010 Preseason Coaches Poll, return eight starters and 17 letterwinners from a team that went 21-2-0, won the WCC title and reached the "Elite Eight" of the NCAA Tournament. San Diego went 12-7-2 overall and 5-2 in the WCC last season en route to its third consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Leading a quartet of play-by-play announcers for the package is Dean Linke, who enters his third season as the primary voice of the NSCAA College Game of the Week. Also lending their talents to the broadcasts are veterans Mark Rogondino, Dave Johnson and Steve Bell. The color analysts for the women's games will include former collegiate players Kyndra de St. Aubin (Minnesota), Sari Rose (Wake Forest) and Lisa Grubb (Ohio State).
