college football TV schedule

Better late than never! College football TV schedule this Saturday

Holy crap.  What a week it’s been.  I am moving this weekend and other factors have conspired to make it difficult for me to do anything, including posting on my blog.  The worst part of all this is that I won’t be able to watch any college football tomorrow.  None.  It’s moving day and I will have no TV or internet all weekend.  To say it fucking sucks would be an understatement.  Anyway, enough of the rant and on with the schedule.  Let’s start out with the cable schedule:

Air   Force at Navy 11:30 AM CBS
Eastern Michigan at Buffalo 12:00 PM ABC
Georgia State at Alabama 12:00 PM Peachtree
Lehigh at Fordham 12:00 PM CBSSN
Penn State at Indiana 12:00 PM BTN
Maryland at Florida State 12:00 PM TSN2
North Carolina at Virginia   Tech 12:30 PM WSBK
Georgia at Tennessee 3:30 PM CBS
Rice at Tulsa 3:30 PM CBSSN
Minnesota at Michigan 3:30 PM ABC
Louisiana Tech at UTEP 7:30 PM CBSSN
Arizona State vs. Notre Dame 7:30 PM NBC
TCU at Oklahoma 8:00 PM FOX/SN360
Ohio State at Northwestern 8:00 PM ABC

A few good ones on the cable schedule tomorrow.  OSU-Northwestern should be a dandy game.  And now all of a sudden the ASU-ND game at Jerry World won’t be so much of an upset if the Sun Devils can pull it off.  The other big game is early and for once, Bell does a good job getting Maryland-Florida St. on TSN2.  Don’t see Rogers doing that.  No they air the same game that’s on FOX which makes no sense.  Which probably sums up the vision of the Sportsnet family of networks.  Now the specialty pack schedule:

Bell Fibe Bell Sat Rogers SSP
SD HD SD HD SD HD
Eastern Michigan at Buffalo 12:00 PM 394 394 442
Georgia State at Alabama 12:00 PM 395 395 443
Louisville at Temple 12:00 PM 393 393 441
Illinois at Nebraska 12:00 PM 392 1464 392 1537 440 480
Michigan State at Iowa 12:00 PM 391 1463 391 1536 439 479
Maryland at Florida State 12:00 PM 390 1462 390 1535 438 478
Clemson at Syracuse 3:30 PM 442
Georgia Tech at Miami 3:30 PM 392 1464 392 1537 440 480
Minnesota at Michigan 3:30 PM 439 479
Kansas State at Oklahoma State 3:30 PM 393 393 441
Arkansas at Florida 7:00 PM 391 1463 391 1536 439 479
LSU at Mississippi State 7:00 PM 390 1462 390 1535 438 478
Ole Miss at Auburn 7:00 PM 392 1464 392 1537 440 480
Missouri at Vanderbilt 7:30 PM 393 393 441
Washington at Stanford 10:30 PM 390 1462 390 1535 438 478

A lot of choice.  Of course this would be the weekend I miss.  Damn!  A bit of overlap with some ABC and Peachtree stuff.  Washington-Stanford should be a great game.  A lot of SEC action as well.  I have noticed there is VERY little Pac-12 action and also very little Big XII action in this area of the country.  Makes sense but there’s a void there.  So why doesn’t Sportsnet pick up a game from either of these conferences that isn’t being shown on another network.  That’s the kicker.  It’s all well and good that they are showing TCU-Oklahoma but it’s a FOX network game being shown nationally on FOX.  So what is the point of also broadcasting the game?  Unless you want to watch local commercials you might as well watch the broadcast on FOX.  Again, Sportsnet amazes me with this.  Their decisions are baffling.  I thought I would get used to it but I’m not.

Anyway, to anyone who gets to watch college football this weekend, have fun!  I’ll be ready next week!

  1. At one point in the day I was flipping between 5 good games being played at the same time – which is precisely the reason why I ordered the NCAAF package. One thing that pissed me off though (aside from SN doing their usual Fox broadcast) was the Fibe NCAAF pack showing the first quarter of the Michigan-Minnesota game and then abruptly ending the broadcast. I live in Quebec so the only game I could get on ABC was the Syracuse vs. Clemson game broadcast out of Vermont. I know UM vs. Minn was also shown on ESPN2 so I’m wondering why it wasn’t it scheduled to air on the package (there was space for it).

    1. Yes the college football package kind of allows Canadians to know what Americans get on Saturday with their college football coverage. Not as great but closer than it used to be.

      I don’t understand why they would end the Michigan-Minnesota broadcast after the first quarter. My thoughts are if it is scheduled to air, then air the whole thing. Sometimes the packages air games that are on regular cable but other than that they are usually pretty particular as to what games they show (within the ESPN coverage). I still wish SN would show an FS1 game.
