The Chants face UCLA on Saturday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, with kickoff scheduled for 10:30 p.m. The game is set to be televised on ESPN.

Saturday’s tilt will also be new head coach Tim Beck’s first with the team since taking over in late 2022.

Both teams are coming off 9-4 campaigns in 2022. The Chants are also coming off a three-game skid to end last season, including losses to Troy in the Sun Belt Conference Championship Game and East Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl.

WMBF Sports Director Dave Ackert and reporter Teagan Brown are both in Pasadena providing live coverage for the game through kickoff on WMBF News.

We also take an inside look at CCU’s upcoming season in our “Coastal Countdown” special.

Our sports team highlights the Chants’ last season and how they look to grow under their new head coach, Tim Beck.

It airs 7 p.m. Friday, but if you miss it you can catch it online, on your favorite streaming device.
