SALT LAKE CITY — ESPN announced Monday the game time for BYU's upcoming contest against the surprising Oregon State Beavers.

The BYU homecoming matchup on Saturday, Oct. 13 will air regionally on ABC with kickoff scheduled for 1:30 p.m; the game will be heard on KSL Newsradio 102.7 FM/1160 AM/, with pregame coverage starting at 11:30 am.

With this announcement six of BYU's first seven contests have or will air on ABC or one of the ESPN networks.

The Weber State game was broadcast on BYUtv.

Of BYU's remaining five games, the Cougars face Notre Dame on NBC on October 20 and will play the final two games of the season (at San Jose State on Nov. 17 and at New Mexico State on Nov. 24) on one of the ESPN networks.

Broadcast plans for the Georgia Tech game (Oct. 27) and Idaho (Nov. 10) will be announced at a later date.

Highlights aplenty

From a 47-0 blowout should come plenty of highlights to choose from for the winning team.

And from the defensive effort to the Cougars' two fantastic freshmen, there was certainly plenty to choose from.

You can probably guess what the No. 1 highlight is (Hint: it's all Taysom Hill), but my favorite highlight is the one listed as No. 2.

Behind-the-back bombIt's one of the coolest football plays ever, and it could only happen in intramurals.

During a flag football game at Purdue University, one of quarterbacks drops back to pass, looks down field, and with the defense barreling down him whips the ball behind him, launching it 30 yards down the field to an open receiver for the score and a place on ESPN's Top 10.

Awkward, but pretty.

Homerun reenactment

Talk about bizarre.

Over the weekend the Washington National's Michael Morse reenacted a grandslam he hit hit against the St. Louis Cardinals.

That's not so strange. The bizarre part is that he did it during a live game.

You see, Morse hit his grandslam over the right field wall, but the ball ricocheted off a sign and back onto the field given the umpires the impression that is was a live ball.

Everyone seemed confused and Morse was eventually tagged out in a rundown. But, after reviewing the replay, the umpires ruled it a homerun.

Then they made the three runners go back to their bases and Morse back to home plate to correctly run (and touch) all the bases.

When Morse arrived at "home" he took a phantom swing - with no bat in hand - then started trotting to first.

Pretty silly, but that's what makes it so funny.

One of these things is unlike the otherLeave it to Comedy Central's Key & Peele to poke fun at college football, its players and the introductions of those players.

In this video you meet "the flamboyant players of the East/West Collegiate Bowl."

And with names like Javarius Jamar Javarison-Lamar, Hingle McCringleberry, D'Glester Hardunkichud and Shakiriquan T.G.I.F. Carter would this be anything but an all-star game?

But right at the end something goes sideways.

You are introduced to "Dan Smith, BYU."

Too funny.
