April 28, 1998
STANFORD, Calif. --- Stanford University and Arizona State University have announced that their football contest originally scheduled for Saturday, October 17 has been moved to Thursday, October 22 at 7 p.m. at Sun Devil Stadium.
The switch was primarily made to accommodate a national telecast by the Fox Sports Network (Fox Sports Bay Area locally), which reaches 60 million households nationwide. The move will give both the Stanford football program and the Pacific-10 Conference an added opportunity for national television exposure.
"This is a tremendous opportunity for our program," Stanford head football coach Tyrone Willingham said. "It gives us another chance to expose our program to the entire nation."
Here is a look at the revised 1998 Stanford football schedule:
