Usually, today (Wednesday) is the day most major announcements come out for these games

There seems to be much less RSN interest than in the past, this could be due to the participating teams in these game, or maybe people/schools are more comfortable with an ESPN3 broadcast than they were just a couple of seasons ago.

There were issues with this channel last season
Where it was only available in its home footprint and not nationwide via directv/dish

I will confirm and update

billmich, despite what tvguide.com and other say, NESN and FSNorth are not channel 434 and 436 on Dish Network anymore they are 412-24 (NESN) and 412-26 (FS North).

I've grabbed those dish network channel numbers from their respective Wikipedia pages

I will trust you and make the necessary changes

Edit, I went to the dish site and tried to look up their program guide
Maybe you have special equipment that you tune that channel, maybe others can confirm

They picked up BOTH games from Toledo. I just checked my guide for Sat and they are BOTH listed on the main channel

The best I have for people in the Mankato Area?

Both Buffalo Wild Wings will stream the Minnesota State/Miami game on their big screens.

Just saw FSN North IS picking up BOTH games from the regional. SCSU at 12:30 woth MSUM to follow. Saw this on my guide on DirecTv for Saturday.

I'm not worried about NESN

I called, emailed, tweeted, and facebooked FSN NORTH about this matter yesterday afternoon with no response yet.

Last year their Facebook page BLEW UP over this ( I think the gophers were in one of the games) and I would hope a lesson was learned

The Fox North Girls or whatever they're called weren't able to assist you? I'm stunned. They seem so knowledgeable.

As I posted in another thread, espn3 wasn't an option back then, and ESPN has been more willing to start pre-empted games on ESPN news lately

For those who care, I got bored and made a google doc with alot of this info. It's everything I need to know for the weekend including where the Minnesota Wild and NCAA BB Games are...I've included Dish Network and DirecTV channels, if you've got cable...have to figure it out yourself.

Good news regarding FSN north:

The games will have no territorial restrictions this year as per our agreement with ESPN syndication. Anyone with direct or dish will be able to see the games this year.

AT least you don't live in Wisconsin and have to deal with Fox Sports Wisconsin... i'm pretty sure they run that network out of a run down Astro Rape van that is constantly parked outside of Miller Park or the Bradley Center..... So over Fox Sports Wisconsin.. got kicked off their facebook page cause I kept calling the Milwaukee Bucks the Milwaukee "sucks" and informing them that no one west of waukesha Wisconsin cares about the bucks... lol....

AHEM. I will defend Jenny Taft, kind of former/current FSN Girl (she's expanded her role a little; still deals with social media aspect however). She did the Red Bull Crashed Ice, played sports at BU, and her brother plays for CC. She knows her sh*.

True, and she is easy on the eyes. :)

Yes, she is. Plus, really cool. A buddy ran into her at a Gopher game, and called me, and she wished me a great night watching the Gophers. That's totally rube-ish, yet she rolled with it. Guess she was goofing around with my buddy's daughter, etc, too. That's just awesome.
