Cat have more games televised than the Griz this year
If it's old news then you must have a link ? Rumors on egriz do not equal news.
The games in question are going to be night games on network television. NBC decided they would rather have the Cats vs. SFA instead of Miami(OH) @ Boise State. The reasoning was that the blue turf can cause seizures when viewed on tv's utilizing the over-the-air digital conversion boxes (very common in the Ohio viewing area). For the Delaware @ Old Dominion on October 27th, polls showed there just wasn't much interest compared to ND@MSU.
Furthermore, since UM's schedule was cancelled MSU agreed on terms with the NFL on the Seattle Seahawks' bye week. Should make for great regional PR.
