My previous post showed the schedule for college football games for week one this season. I will now update you and confirm some times for tonight (and perhaps tomorrow night as well). I am also trying to give scheduling news for people outside my area (Guelph and the Tri-Cities) although it’s not as easy to find as local coverage news obviously.
OK as for tonight, here is the schedule:
|August 29, 2013||Thursday||North Carolina at South Carolina||6:00 PM||SN360|
|August 29, 2013||Thursday||Tulsa at Bowling Green||7:00 PM||ESPNU|
|August 29, 2013||Thursday||UNLV at Minnesota||7:00 PM||BTN|
|August 29, 2013||Thursday||Ole Miss at Vanderbilt||9:15 PM||SN360|
|August 29, 2013||Thursday||Rutgers at Fresno State||10:30 PM||ESPNU|
|August 29, 2013||Thursday||USC at Hawaii||11:00 PM||CBSSN|
Everything above is confirmed. Rogers customers get the BTN games and unfortunately Bell customers do not. The specialty channel listings will be as follows for tonight:
|Rogers SSP||Bell Fibe||Bell Satellite|
|Tulsa at Bowling Green||432-SD, 472-HD||391-SD, 1463-HD||397-SD, 1536-HD|
|Rutgers at Fresno State||432-SD, 472-HD||391-SD, 1463-HD||397-SD, 1536-HD|
Here are the confirmed times for Friday games (as of now):
|August 30, 2013||Friday||Morgan State at Army||7:00 PM||CBSSN|
|August 30, 2013||Friday||FAU at Miami||8:00 PM||ESPNU|
|August 30, 2013||Friday||Texas Tech at SMU||8:00 PM||ESPN|
|August 30, 2013||Friday||Western Michigan at Michigan State||8:00 PM||BTN|
I have channel listings for Rogers SSP and Bell Satellite NCAA pack, but no Fibe listings for Friday night yet. I will update when I get them.
Update: Just got in contact with someone from Bell about the NCAA Sports package. Tonight’s games are just previews at this point. They have no information and one person I spoke with says Bell may not have the package at all this year. Again, I will keep updating this situation as it goes. It would be very unfortunate (and piss me off a lot) if Bell wasn’t offering this.
Update #2: Decided to call in and ask the same thing about the NCAA Sports package. All of a sudden they say the dates on the website are wrong and that I should see the first game at 7:00 (Tulsa-Bowling Green) and if nothing is there I should call and cancel the package immediately. This should be an interesting evening…
Final Update for the evening: NCAA Sports Package works (thank God!). Too bad Tulsa-Bowling Green was a blowout. Hopefully Rutgers-Fresno State turns out to be a good game; however, to be honest, right now I am glued to Vandy-Ole Miss. 🙂
