Georgia-Idaho State game to be on Channel 2 WSB-TV

(Updated Nov. 5)

Here’s a reminder about Saturday’s game:

Georgia’s game against Idaho State -– the one UGA game this season that isn’t part of the SEC television contracts — will be televised on Channel 2 WSB-TV.

Kickoff will be 12:30 p.m. in Sanford Stadium.

The SEC television contracts with CBS and ESPN allow each school to produce one game per season outside those contracts. Typically that one game is shown on pay-per-view, but Georgia opted to put this year’s on free TV, athletic director Greg McGarity said.

“This free-of-charge broadcast is a way to give back to our fans throughout the state,” McGarity said in September. “We believe making the game available on WSB-TV and its coverage area is a way to show our appreciation to Bulldogs around our state.”

The game will be available in the 53-county Atlanta TV market, as well as on cable systems in Albany, Macon, Savannah, Columbus, Chattanooga, Greenville and Tallahassee, according to UGA. The telecast also will be available on both DirecTV and DISH to subscribers who receive Channel 2 WSB-TV.

UPDATE:  Bob Neal will call the play-by-play on the telecast, with analysis from Darryl Jones and sideline reporting from Zach Klein.

Out of state Alumni no luck? I live in Baltimore now and watch the games with the Baltimore Area Alumni Association. From the way this sounds it looks like there will be no way to view the game…

Bob,
I hope it will be on espn3 as I don’t mind watching it online, but if it is not a part of the ESPN contract at all then it sounds like they may not carry it. I guess I’ll have to cross this bridge when I get there.

Your team is pathetic, out of the top 25 and your schedule is a joke. Idaho State? Are u serious? You get hammered by Arkansas, Auburn, TN, UF and GT. Yes, your mutts lose 6 games and then the crying begins. THWG!

I knew it was my red panties that made UGA suck this year. My question is where are they now? Does AJ Green have them, or coach Richt? Please keep em, and wear them against Idaho State. You may need them playing such a powerhouse of a football team. PANTY WASTE!

Kansas is a heck of alot better than Idaho State and Louisinna whomever. Maybe you shoudl schedule the Coast Guard next year. maybe, they can keep your arrests/jailyard dawgs program from sinking into oblivion. LMFAO! Hey, you still may win the NC this year. Your number 1 in arrest with 8. keep up the great work and bite me sanford drive. Your mutts suck.

Hey Sanford,

Do you have the nasty red panties, or the scooter helmet? I think you need both, with your patsy schedule and louzy team. The scooter helmet may save your teams life. Oh, I will even throw in a Jersey.

Way to give back to the fans. Show them the easiest game on the schedule that you will win by 50. If you want to really give back show a game that really counts for free.

You just got owned by a team that only managed to score 3 points against North Dakota! Hahahahahaha…..Man, you all suck big time.

Oh, and your schedule is the biggest joke around. In addition to sorry Kansas, you also scheduled such juggernauts as SC State and MTSU. That’s not even including the joke of a conference that you play in that gets destroyed by every decent out of conference team they play.

Come to think of it, MTSU may be a L for you given the fact you are worse then North Dakota.

That’s very kind of UGA, I’m sure, but just how many people were actually willing to pay to see UGA vs. Idaho State? I’m sure billions, especially if the Dawgs still haven’t gotten it together by then.

Owned? Tech had the ball with a chance to score to win the game or kick a FG for OT. You were NEVER in the South Carolina game. What a joke, dillhead.

We had bigger fish to fry than North Dakota State.

Like Iowa, and South Carolina State, and UGA.

Them Kota State boys was just a warmup.

Wow! This is big news. I was really concerned about whether the classic uGA/Idaho State game would be on tv. There will be a lot riding on this one. I predict uga will finally get their running game going in this one, and the defense will play up to their “capabilities”.

- North Dakota > GT

Wrong team, jerkwad. This story is about Georgia, not Georgia Tech which was the team that lost to Kansas. It’s probably not your fault that you are a total moron who bites the big one. No, it obviously must be the fault of your parents due to all of that inbreeding that they do out in your zip code.

Once again, sorry a$$ Tech just lost to Kansas, who only managed to score 3, that’s right, 3 points against the mighty North Dakota State Bison in a loss the previous week. In summary, GT is and continues to be a massive joke, along with their pathetic moronic fans that constantly flood UGA’s blogs and obsess over them.

WHAT REALLY BURNS ME IS WHEN YOU SEE A MAN BURN YOU WITH JUST ABOUT EVERY RUNNING PLAY. IT’S CALLED DOUBLE TEAM THE MAN BUT IT WAS LIKE THEY NEVER EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT AND CONTINUED TO ALLOW HIM ALONE TO GATHER YARDS AND YARDS OF RUSHING. SOME-THING HAS GOT TO GEY BETTER

Paul Johnson

What we gonnado is this…

snap the ball to Neesbit. Then ever-body swarm in and create a inpenetratable circle around said Neesbit. Then that dagggum Neesbit will hand the ball off to one very lucky player. Then we BREAK open the circle around Neesbit, and nobody will know who has the ball Neesbit gave em’. Then chances are, the lucky player with Neesbit’s ball will run daggum scott-free to the touchdown zone.

Come play for Me, Paul Johnson, and run the unstaoppable triple option.

GT Fans, don’t forget that UNC has had two weeks to prepare for your triple option and your top notch ACC (Another Crappy Conference) defense. Oh yeah, some of their suspended players are back. ACC Champs are looking at 1-2. Must be nice to be a Yellow Jacket!!
Sidewalk 74, all of Georgia’s games are on tv this year. Can you say the same thing about GT? Go back and actually read the article. The game will be on WSB instead of pay-per-view. Sorry if the article used words with too many syllables for you.

Keep saying it, “Wait until next year.” You are going nowhere until you get rid of Richt. Look at the QB roster in 2010, 4 FRESHMEN, no Soph, jr or sr. So you redshirt 1 or 2, then what, how many recruits do you think you will get over the next few years. You will not when a NC with Richt, not disciplined enough as a coach, may win the SEC once a decade. All you will be doing is hiding behind the SEC SKIRT like VANDY! Unfortunately the SEC Skirt isn’t as pretty as in the past.
