TV Information for Virginia Tech's Football Game Against Boston College (Gobbler Country)
If you're not in the area served by any of the networks listed above, but receive an "alternate" channel for your local RSN, you might try that channel at game time. It's been my experience that the RSN alternate feed will sometimes show the Fox Sports ACC game for that week even if it's not showing up on the guide. That's my hope for this week anyway. On my guide, my alternate RSN feed says it's going to show the same game the regular feed is showing during the Hokies' time slot. Hopefully it's wrong again or I'll be watching this game on ESPN3.
