WALNUT CREEK, Calif.--Arizona's football game to open the Pac-10 season  Oct. 1 at California has been selected for a national broadcast by Turner Sports.

The game will kickoff at 4 p.m. (PDT and MST), and be shown on Turner's national cable channel WTBS. Ron Thulin will handle the play-by-play, with analysis by Charles Davis and sideline reporting by Craig Sager.

The game originally was scheduled for 3:30 p.m., although most Pac-10 games have default or provisional kickoff times because most of the league's selections by television partners ABC Sports, FSN and TBS are picked either 12 or six days prior to the games.

Arizona, 1-2 overall after its narrow loss to No. 12 Purdue last week in Tucson, 31-24, has an open date this weekend, while unbeaten and No. 13-ranked California (3-0) comes off a home victory over Illinois on Saturday and will travel to Las Cruces this week for a non-conference game at New Mexico State. The Bears are 1-0 in conference play, having beaten Washington 51-17 on Sept. 10.

The game in Berkeley is UA's third national television contest on the schedule, along with the opener at Utah (ESPN) and the season finale at Arizona State on Nov. 25. Other games remain in the mix for potential selection by the networks. The NAU game on Sept. 10 was televised by UA partner FSN Arizona.
