Virginia Tech returns home to host Arkansas State in a game that can be seen on regional sports networks across the country. The majority of networks showing the game are on the East Coast, but a couple of others have elected to show the game as well.
The game being shown on FSN and Comcast Sports Net Mid-Atlantic is one of the advantages of the ACC's new TV deal with ESPN. The game is a part of Raycom's syndicated games and has been basically sub-leased to Fox Sports. The same was the case with UNC's game against JMU in Week 1 and Wake Forest's game with NC State in Week 2. If it weren't for the new TV deal, this game would probably be destined for ESPN3.
From what I can gather based on online TV listings, here are the regional sports networks showing Saturday's game. Check your local listings for availability and channel line-up.
