Although our first broadcast of BYU football is still a season away, we're already moving into a new role as a source for all things BYU football. This includes Wednesday's live, one-hour True Blue special "The Road to Independence," where we'll bring you the official new football schedule for 2011 with BYU Athletic Director Tom Holmoe. Watch the announcement Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 6pm (with rebroadcasts at 7pm and 11:15pm). True Blue host Dave McCann will join Holmoe in-studio to bring you the exclusive details you want to know about next season. BYU fans won't want to miss it!

We're also bringing you the live national broadcast of the BYU men's basketball game against Arizona this Saturday, Dec. 11 at 4pm. Cheer on your Cougars against the Wildcats on BYUtv and byutv.org/live.

Not that long ago, you wouldn't have thought to come to BYUtv to find breaking news about BYU football—or any other BYU sport for that matter. But the announcement that BYU is going independent has changed things in a big way. We're excited that BYUtv's True Blue is the new home for BYU athletics on the airways, reaching 55 million homes and millions more through the Internet. Not only will BYUtv be broadcasting live football and basketball games next year, BYUtv will also be as close as you can get to developments as they arise for BYU sports.
