It's official. The college football game of the day Saturday is UCLA at Oregon. What makes it official is that ESPN has chosen Eugene, Ore., as the site for the "College GameDay" pregame show. Yes, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and host Chris Fowler will be in Eugene. But they won't be there to promote an ESPN telecast, or even an ABC telecast. The 12:30 p.m. game is on Fox Sports Net. So how did the game of the day end up on Fox Sports Net? You might say ABC, which has first choice, messed up.

No matter that Florida breezed past Ohio State, 41-14, in last year's Bowl Championship Series title game. The number that mattered to Fox Sports and its national advertisers and bowl sponsors was 27.7 million -- the viewers who tuned in and gave Fox its strongest Monday night showing in years.

In the category of better-late-than-never, the Clippers and Fox Sports Net announced Saturday that they have agreed to terms on a multiyear television contract. Beginning with Monday night's home game against New Orleans, Fox Sports Net 2 will televise 14 of the Clippers' remaining 24 games. The regional cable network will also televise Wednesday's game at Washington, live at 4 p.m., as well as Friday's game at Boston. The Boston game will also be on ESPN.

As is the case with most major sporting events these days, there will be more than the traditional television coverage of today's All-Star game. At 2 p.m., there will be a two-hour webcast of batting practice, available for free via Foxsports.com and MLB.com. Fox's Chris Rose and MLB.com's Harold Reynolds will serve as co-hosts. At 4 p.m.

With some cooperation from the Kings and Mighty Ducks, Fox Sports Net 2 landed Saturday's USC-UCLA game, which will start at 3:30 p.m. Although that's not a perfect scenario, things couldn't have worked out much better for Los Angeles football fans. Oregon-Oregon State will be on Channel 7 at 12:30 p.m., and Washington-Washington State will be on Fox Sports Net at 3:30 p.m. One negative is that USC-UCLA probably will be joined in progress.

It goes without saying that Laker and Clipper television carriers Channel 9 and Fox Sports West are relieved by Wednesday's NBA settlement. "Sports represent about a third of our business, so you can imagine what it meant to take the Lakers and Clippers out of the equation," said Don Corsini, Channel 9's vice president and general manager. "It's like NBC losing 'Seinfeld' and 'ER.'

The Assn. of Volleyball Professionals has two new partners, and they aren't breweries or sun-block makers. They're networks. NBC and Fox Sports Net have agreed to invest in the AVP and will receive minority stakes in the beach volleyball tour as it continues to crawl out of the fiscal hole it fell into more than five years ago.

The Angels pulled the plug on Fox Sports Net on Wednesday, putting their fans in jeopardy of losing television coverage of opening day and virtually every road game this season. Six weeks after Arte Moreno called a 10-year, $500-million contract extension with FSN "a done deal," the Angel owner terminated negotiations with the cable company. Instead of the proposed 150-game television package, the Angel coverage reverted to the 50 games required under the existing FSN West contract.

Site -- Staples Center. Records -- Sparks 10-7, Storm 9-10. Record vs. Storm -- 2-0. Update -- Whether the team is suffering post-championship doldrums (a la Detroit in 2004) or there are other issues, the Storm has lost seven of its last 10. Friday's win helped Seattle remain 1 1/2 games behind Minnesota for the fourth and final playoff spot in the West. The Sparks expect to sign forward Jessica Moore, recently waived by Charlotte, today and have her available tonight.

Three months after removing Chris Rose as the host of "Best Damn Sports Show Period," Fox Sports Net announced Tuesday that Rose was coming back, effective March 21. FSN also confirmed that Tom Arnold would no longer be a regular on the show. Arnold, under a new one-year contract, will appear periodically during major sports events. John Salley will remain on the show and be joined by a new ensemble. Among the candidates are former Dodger Todd Zeile.

Both league championship series playoff games today start at 5 p.m., PST, because Fox prefers two late games instead of one game in the afternoon and one in prime time. Both of today's games will be on in prime time in the East. Fox spokesman Dan Bell said the last time Fox televised a Game 1 of a weekday league championship series in the afternoon -- the Arizona Diamondbacks and Atlanta Braves in 2001 -- it drew only a 4.4 national rating.

In the 1960s and for much of the '70s, NBC's Curt Gowdy was everywhere -- announcing the Rose Bowl, the Super Bowl, the NCAA tournament, baseball, the World Series, and pro and college football. Brent Musburger and Pat Summerall became omnipresent at CBS, as did Jim McKay and Keith Jackson at ABC. But then the networks began shying away from having one or two main announcers. In an era of escalating rights fees, salaries became an issue.

News Corp.'s Fox Sports Net filed a lawsuit late Monday against EchoStar Communications Corp., claiming that the satellite TV distributor owed it at least $25 million in subscription fees for carrying its 12 regional channels. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, stems from a $10.3-million payment that Fox said it received from EchoStar in March 2003 labeled "shortfall payment," according to the suit.

Suzy Shuster and Rich Eisen celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary Monday with wine sent over from the regions of Italy where they had honeymooned. The wine was Shuster's idea, and a surprise to her husband. How chic is that? They could be called the mod couple of sports television. They could also be called the odd couple, because they work for competing networks.
