This week the Virginia Tech Hokies travel to Greenville, NC, to take on the East Carolina Pirates. The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Net and Comcast Sports Net. This is a part of Conference USA's television deal with Fox Sports that began this season. According to HokieSports, this will be Virginia Tech's first appearance on Fox Sports Net.
Southern Nazarene University grad Ron Thulin will do play-by-play with former Washington defensive back J.C. Pearson and former Colorado kick returner Jeremy Bloom.
Fox Sports Net is typically available on your cable provider's basic package. Check your local listings for availability and channel information. From what I can tell, these are the regional sports networks showing the Virginia Tech-East Carolina game:
CSN Mid Atlantic
Root Sports Pittsburgh (JIP after Norfolk State at West Virginia)
CSN Chicago (JIP after Cubs at Mets)
CSN Bay Area
