Virginia Tech's game against Miami will be an ABC/ESPN "Reverse Mirror" game. The Hokies have been involved in these games before and the network coverage maps will be released Wednesday. If you can't find a coverage map or can't tell which game you might be getting, there's one easy way to tell.
At game time, change the channel to your local ABC station. If you see the Virginia Tech game, then it's on ABC. If you see the Iowa-Penn State game, Virginia Tech is being shown on ESPN. If you see Kansas State-Missouri, you can only see the Virginia Tech game on ESPN3 streaming online.
Unfortunately for everyone involved, Mike Patrick and Craig James will be providing play by play and color no matter what network you can see the game.
