not true about the same teams… normally Auburn and LSU are on CSS or ESPN too and this 1st time I have every seen NC State or UVa spring games listed

Why is it that it’s all ACC and SEC teams? (yeah yeah, Texas is there, but they’re broadasting themselves, it’s executive decision to go with all the others)

There’s still a month to go until most games, so maybe others will get picked up. Hearing BYU will be on BYUtv, but haven’t seen anything official yet.

The ACC’s contract is exclusive with ESPN. The ACC Net games are sublicensed from ESPN. CSS has a contract to air specific SEC teams. That contract is made with those specific teams, but CSS has a contract to air any SEC games on ESPN3, which is why they get so many SEC games as well. I’m hearing that local FSN/ Comcast/ ROOT affiliates will also pick up some games. BYUtv is advertising when the game is, but they have a softball double header scheduled to air that day (softball DH starts at 1:30 PM, so unless the Spring Game is less than an hour it’d be tricky to do both), so I wouldn’t be surprised if KSL-AM 1160 is the only group to carry it again.

Yeah I’m sooo sick of sec teams blah!!!! I would take division II game over watching any sec team anymore.

Whatever conference you follow compared to SEC is division 2. You don’t have to like just DEAL with it.

The 2012 Arizona spring football game will be at 1 PM Arizona Time (4 PM Eastern Time) on April 14 and will be televised by Fox Sports Arizona according to Wikipedia, but they could be basing that off of past years being on FS Arizona.

Notre Dame’s Blue-Gold Spring game will be televised by NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus) at 1:30 p.m. ET. Added to schedule above.
