Damn. I won't be able to see it unless it will still be streamed with Campus Insiders. Glad they didn't go with ESPN and move the date to pre-Christmas.

I like the ASN broadcast.

I think CBS Sports Network still has a streaming package.

Correct, I've been saying for 3 years now they need to add this.

Yeah for those 100 people with WOW, Frontier, Buckeye, optimum, and Cox cable providers; Cox is the only one I've heard of. CBSSN definitely needs to improve its streaming availability. I'm in a house with 4 TVs but only 1 gets CBSSN. Why not put this game and the Cure Bowl on regular CBS with the Sun Bowl where they would have more available screens? These are the only games not on the ESPN family.

Last year it was 5:30pm ET, which would be 2:30pmin Arizona at that time of year (they don't "fall back" for DST)

The game could start at 10:30pm ET, which would be 7:30pm local time (tilting toward 8pm actual kickoff), which works fine in the desert. It would be fairly normal kickoff time for the MWC school, but late for the SBC school.

Per the rumor mill. ESPN offered to take the Arizona Bowl but wanted it played Wednesday December 20th to fill the Poinsettia Bowl mid-week pre-Christmas slot and the Tucson people said no thanks because they wanted to remain in the post-Christmas slot to help the hotels.

If the network could figure out a way to get more distribution (on standard cable tiers, more markets and streaming), they could be a major player. I have been stuck watching my Bearcats in the network for the past couple years and see a lot of potential in the network. Good production overall and the CBS brand is very strong

Arizona is on mountain time in the winter, when everyone else has shifted back to standard time. Two hours behind east coast time, not three.

Sorry but it gets cold in Tucson in the evening. That is why they moved to early afternoon for the start time.

I had DST backwards. hum.

I suspect they will start the game about 1pm MT, 3pm ET, and figure they will get the first half in. People who are going to stick around will stick around. The game is on CBSSN which nobody watches. So it'll just be those from the tow schools who care.
