News and notes as UCLA Football prepares to take on Arizona State tonight in Tempe.

Gameday is here. Later tonight, the Bruins will be taking the field in Tempe to take on Arizona State. Kickoff is scheduled for 7pm Pacific time at Sun Devil Stadium, with the television broadcast being carried by Fox Sports 1 – Tim Brando, Joel Klatt and Jenny Taft calling the action for FS1 – and Chris Roberts, Matt Stevens and Wayne Cook on the radio broadcast as usual for AM570 and other stations on the Bruin Radio Network. For folks outside of SoCal and/or stuck without a decent radio signal, the Bruin audio feed will available for free streaming via the TuneIn Radio app.

No, he won’t be calling the game tonight, but the network did ask Troy Aikman to share a few words for the start of the Pac-12 season and the start of the Fall Quarter in Westwood.
