  1. This is phenomenal, thanks!

  2. Thanks for the great run down. Nice to see the Champs Sports Bowl has been picked up. Would have been nice to have all 35 televised but you can’t complain with getting 33 of 35 available to Canadians.

  3. Josh, did you email TSN & The Score to inquire about the TicketCity Bowl & Music City bowl? If you already have, did they give you a reason why they aren’t airing these bowls? Also, do you if Sportsnet would be interested in airing one or both bowls? Excellent work putting the college bowl television guide together Josh! :)

    • Sportsnet have never shown a second of College Football, why would they start now? I don’t watch Connected, but I’d be surprised if they even ran highlights during the regular season.

      • Huh? Sportsnet One showed college football games this season and the Sportsnet regional channels showed College Football bowl games in the past! I bet that they do show highlights of College Football games during the regular season. After all, they show the results of certain games on their ticker during Connected and they cover news & notes from college football. Same with College Basketball… in fact they showed footage of a recent fight between Xavier and Cincinnati.

      • Sportsnet does show a fair amount of ncaa football this past season they dod air around 26 reg season games plus a couple conference championships.

    • Yes I’ve been in contact with the programming departments of both over the past few weeks as they’ve added games to their schedule. None can show the TicketCity because they all have other college games at the same time. TSN and TSN2 both have World Juniors/Raptors during the Music City Bowl; theScore has WWE.

      Spoortsnet doesn’t have rights to any of those games. TSN and theScore share rights.

  4. A bit late to the party here, well at least it’s down to just 2 games that we’ll need the internet to see. I watch college games all year on my pc and laptop to add to whatever games I get on satellite. 2 bowl games sounds like the norm. Both Tsn and Tsn2 have games at 1 on Monday and TheScore also has a game at 1 on Monday so I figured the Ticket City Bowl wouldn’t be seen. Sad that the Music City bowl won’t be seen on Friday. At least we get the game before and after. Thank heavens for internet streaming.

  5. It would be nice to have some good games on TSN. Not just TSN2. So instead of the Rose Bowl I get to watch the “all important” Finland Vs. Slovakia game. Nopt impressed. The pick-up the bowl games and the Junior Championship and force you to pay more for TSN2. Again not impressed TSN.

  6. Wellits 2013 now and TSN2 is the only channel carrying the Rosebowl. That sucks- I have basic cable and watched the Rosebowl for years. I think stateside its on ESPN.
    Guess its time to fork over more dollars to the television gods.
