To say it will "appear" on PAC12 network isn't exactly true. Depends on where you are. Depends on who you have as a cable provider. Depends on the moon aligning with the stars. In other words it's another case of UMass fans getting screwed out of watching this "winnable" game. But when we're likely to get our asses booted by ND it'll be easy to see in front of a national audience.

I usually like looking at Keepers, too, but it has Auburn as only 8 pt favorites over Jacksonville St.

UMASS had 6 months to try to get the Colorado game on local TV and, as usual no TV. How does UMASS expect to create a following? smh

Computer rankings algorithms usually need about a month of data before they start reflecting the new season.

To get someone to pick up the UMass game.... the PAC12 Network has to allow the rights to be picked up. From what I hear, it isn't as easy as it sounds.
