OK the Bell NCAA Sports Package works just fine (thank God!). I still have the second half of Rutgers-Fresno State on the PVR to watch so NO SPOILERS PLEASE!
Anyway, now on to the issue at hand: the rest of the schedule for the weekend. First off, here is the cable schedule for the next three days (as I showed earlier in the week):
|August 30, 2013||Friday||Morgan State at Army||7:00 PM||CBSSN|
|August 30, 2013||Friday||Western Michigan at Michigan State||8:00 PM||BTN|
|August 31, 2013||Saturday||Umass at Wisconsin||12:00 PM||BTN|
|August 31, 2013||Saturday||Toledo at Florida||12:00 PM||Peachtree|
|August 31, 2013||Saturday||Louisiana Tech at NC State||12:30 PM||WSBK|
|August 31, 2013||Saturday||Penn State vs. Syracuse (from East Rutherford)||3:30 PM||ABC|
|August 31, 2013||Saturday||Central Michigan at Michigan||3:30 PM||BTN|
|August 31, 2013||Saturday||Temple at Notre Dame||3:30 PM||NBC|
|August 31, 2013||Saturday||Miami-OH at Marshall||7:00 PM||CBSSN|
|August 31, 2013||Saturday||Georgia at Clemson||8:00 PM||ABC|
|August 31, 2013||Saturday||Wyoming at Nebraska||8:00 PM||BTN|
|September 1, 2013||Sunday||Colorado vs. Colorado State (from Denver)||6:00 PM||CBSSN|
Now depending on where you live you may get Northern Illinois vs. Iowa for the 3:30 BTN game. I won’t have to worry about that because Bell doesn’t carry the Big Ten Network. Also, after looking at the ESPN coverage maps, most people in Alberta and BC will get Mississippi State vs. Oklahoma State on ABC and the Penn State/Syracuse game on a sports package.
A few big games this week. I definitely want to watch Georgia-Clemson although it will cut into my TCU-LSU watching but you have to draw the line somewhere.
Now for the sports package matchups (now that I have it and it works…properly):
|Bell Fibe||Bell Sat||Rogers SSP|
|Friday||FAU at Miami||8:00 PM||390||390||445|
|Friday||Texas Tech at SMU||8:00 PM||391||1464||391||1537||446|
|Saturday||Buffalo at Ohio State||12:00 PM||390||390||1535||433||473|
|Saturday||Purdue at Cincinnati||12:00 PM||391||1463||391||1536||432||472|
|Saturday||Toledo at Florida||12:00 PM||393||393|
|Saturday||Rice at Texas A&M||1:00 PM||392||1464||392||1537||434||474|
|Saturday||BYU at Virginia||3:30 PM||390||391||432||472|
|Saturday||Mississippi State vs. Oklahoma State||3:30 PM||391||390||433||473|
|Saturday||Virginia Tech vs. Alabama||5:30 PM||392||1464||392||1537||434||474|
|Saturday||Washington State at Auburn||7:00 PM||391||391||432||472|
|Saturday||TCU vs. LSU||9:00 PM||392||1464||1537||434||474|
|Saturday||Northwestern at California||10:30 PM||390||390||433||473|
|Sunday||Mississippi Valley State vs. Florida A&M||11:45 AM||390||1464||390||1537||432||472|
|Sunday||Ohio at Louisville||3:30 PM||390||1464||390||1537||432||472|
|Monday||Florida State at Pittsburgh||8:00 PM||390||1464||390||1537||432||472|
Hopefully that doesn’t look like total shit on the blog. LSU-TCU the big game on here for sure but don’t sleep on Northwestern-Cal. Seriously, don’t sleep. OK I know it’s late but try your best.
I am hoping from now on to have schedules earlier on in the week (i.e. by Wednesday evening). I can’t see why that wouldn’t be the case but Rogers and especially Bell were late this week sending out schedules.
