VT at WF on 10/24 is a 3:30 kickoff

The Atlantic Coast Conference and its television partners announced the following football game times and networks for the week of Oct. 24.

Saturday, Oct. 24
Syracuse at Clemson, Noon, ESPN or ACC Network – network designation after games of Oct. 17
NC State at North Carolina, Noon, ESPN or ACC Network – network designation after games of Oct. 17
Florida State at Louisville, Noon, RSN
Notre Dame at Pitt, 3:30 p.m., ABC
Virginia Tech at Wake Forest, 3:30 p.m., RSN
Georgia Tech at Boston College, 4 p.m., ACC Network
Virginia at Miami, 8 p.m., ACC Network

Remember, RSN is the Fox-produced broadcast that shows up on regional cable sports channels. In the past, those of us in the Virginia area would get the games on NBC Sports Washington, but it looks like they switched to MASN this year.

This link shows the RSN affiliates.

UPDATE - The game will likely be listed on ESPN's platforms as an ESPN3 broadcast. That is only for whatever regions might not actually have the game picked up by another RSN, although based on the list, it looks like most of the country is covered in some capacity. I tried pulling the Duke/NC State game up through ESPN's website and app, and neither worked. "Content not available for your package or region."

Anyone know if MASN was one of the victims of the YouTube TV and Fox Sports affiliates fallout?

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

So what you're saying is I need to get my antenna out?

Though I use Hulu, so I need to check that first.

Antenna can't pick up cable channels...

Hmm I could have sworn i got that OTA, i wonder what channel I am think of.

welp

Why is RSN still a thing? I thought the ESPN contract was going to put all ACC games on one of the ESPN networks (ABC to the Ocho).

Short answer: It's Pitt's fault.

I have to imagine that the RSN deal is really chapping someone's ass at ESPN after the 6OT game last year.

Damn it Narduzzi!

Fuck PITT the fact they still have games on RSN and MASN are aggravating to watch.

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Fox Sports South for the Triangle, NC area

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

I wish we had a Fox Sports Net in Virginia. It would make this so much easier.

If you have YTTV in NC you're shit out of luck in watching this one.

You joke but it represents the first live sports I would be able to attend since February. And I have full NHL season tickets.

But no.... Noooooo... Wife would kill me

Only game I'd begin to consider paying that much for this season is UVA... Maybe Clemson

If it's on RSN, is it still available through ESPN3?

In most cases, no.

If you are in an area that's not covered by an RSN showing the game, maybe.

It will show up in the list of games on ESPN3, but most likely you'll get an "unable to watch" message.

I'll be watching it through ESPN3, but only because I can also see the Pacific Ocean from my house.

Getting hitched in BBurg next Saturday mid-day. Got the wedding photos afterwards and then back to the hotel room to watch the game.

Seriously, congrats!

Congrats fam, but a Hooker on your wedding day seems risky

True, but this is a Hendon Hooker so it's all good!

This is actually Round 2. We were supposed to do it 4 weeks ago but then a coworker decided he wanted to give me the Rona so we had to cancel.

Well that just sounds like karma for scheduling a wedding during football season in the first place...

The original wedding was supposed to be the Friday before the Northern Alabama game and the "reception" was supposed to be a tailgate on the D2 lawn followed by everyone going to the game. Then the world fell apart :(

I think I may get this channel but who knows it is so confusing these days.

@hokie_rd

Has anyone tried using a VPN to watch blacked out ESPN3 or Fox Sports games?

I have YTTV (in Fredericksburg) so I won't be able to watch from home without doing something tricky like using a VPN, but I have never done something like this before and am hoping someone has some good tips.

I'm in the same boat. It's incredibly frustrating that I dropped Comcast and moved to YTTV for football season just for ACCN, and now I'm still not able to see all of VT's games.

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

Yes, I have done it in the past. Get a free VPN, start it and choose an out of your area vpn location, like west coast if you live on the east coast. You should be able to watch on ESPN3 then.

So I live in the Shenandoah Valley and use YouTubeTV... I'm guessing I won't get the game?

Is coronavirus over yet?

So the ACC has effectively screwed us all over. Can't watch ACC network on Comcast, but can't stream the game this weekend on MASN. Thanks for nothing John Swofford.

I'm really wondering how the deal got moved from NBC Sports Washington to MASN.

For those of us that cut the cord are are pissed off that Swofford and ACC completely screwed us over on this, there is another option. You can sign up for a 7 day trial with ATT Now and stream the game. Just make sure you cancel before the trial is up.

This looks to be one of those Saturdays to ignore the game, enjoy the day with the kids, then catch the replay once they're in bed by 8.

I don't know much about anything...but I have yet to be unable to watch any of our games.

I will try all channels on YTTV in Roanoke, if no dice, I will log into whatever channel to see if live streaming is an option.

Still no dice: My saving grace might be logging into my parents Comcast Xfinity account from Richmond and watching live tv on my phone and beaming it to the TV.

Continued no dice: It's 2ish hours to Wake Forrest, I can and will sneak into the stadium for the 2nd half.

506sports is listing Evan Lepler and Brian Jordan as the commentators. These are not the guys who called the 6 OT UNC game last year.

Evan Lepler is a Wake Forest grad who has done a lot of low to mid range sports broadcasts. He worked for the Raycom ACC Network. Apparently he called the worst college basketball game ever - VT over NC State.

Brian Jones is a graduate of University of Richmond, and he later went on to play both pro football and baseball. Looks like he does pregame work for Braves games, and TV work on minor league games.

Anyone know of any antenna tv channels carrying the game locally in VA tomorrow? I remember raycom being on local antenna tv in the past curious if they're still doing that?

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Different deal.

RSNs are cable channels. The syndicated Raycom deal ended with the launch of ESPN's ACCN.

Is there an easy way to figure out if the game is blacked out on ESPN3 in my area? I'm in Atlanta, so sometimes I suffer from the blackouts, other times I don't.

Twitter me

so sometimes I suffer from the blackouts, other times I don't.

Pretty much describes every experience at TOTS.

Go to ESPN website, click on watch, click on browse schedule on menu at top, click on football, scroll the upcoming games to find the one you want. It will say blackout on it if not available to you.

Just to follow up on that, here's a visual:

I went to espn.com/watch, and scrolled down to conferences. Hopefully the link below can take one directly to that page.

The link does take me to that page and it does not say blackout for me. State College PA

Click on the affiliate link in the top post, see if any of the RSNs listed cover your area.

I'm gonna guess that it will be blacked out, because Fox Sports South is the RSN for the Atlanta market.

I did a quick check of RSN coverage areas, and most states or regions are covered by a channel on the affiliate list.

I could not find these states on the coverage lists: Alaska, Kentucky, Montana, Oregon, Washington
If you live in one of those states, you might get the game on ESPN3, but I would check to make sure what the RSNs are that cover your area.

These states only showed up partially on a few different RSN coverage areas: California, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania
If you live in one of those states, you probably can't get the game on ESPN3, but maybe there's a part of the state not covered by the RSNs showing the game. (I highly doubt it, though.)

If you live in a state that is not listed above, you most likely will not be able to get the game on ESPN3.

Supposed to be on ATT Pittsburgh; but they are carrying Fla Atlantic at Marshall. Hope that means it will be available on watch ESPN.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Fox Sports South here in Winston Salem. Let's Go!!!

Anyone know what happens when this FSU game runs over to the Tech game?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Miss the beginning. I remember getting pissed that we missed the first quarter of our game one time because Iowa vs. Iowa State went into OT on RSN.

Was able to get a stream on foxs sports go. Thank God.

Missed the 1st half. Now watching a YouTube live stream

It's an unwritten law that it's my lunch pail. I've issued the challenge. If someone outworks me, they can get it.

Was able to get the game on youtube tv or espn. The stream is borderline unwatchable. So is the football

It's on ATT Pittsburgh starting at 9 PM. Not really interested in watching now.
