* Subject to blackout.
Well, once again I will not be able to watch the Gators play on television. Because, not only is the bowl game on a work day but, also on espn (which I can’t get, because I don’t have cable). I just cannot believe that not one local t.v. station don’t want to carry the game. This type of coverage has got to change! I’M SO DISAPPOINTED!
Local stations would love to televise the game, but ESPN purchased the broadcast rights. It’s big $$.
