Creighton and Oregon have both won games at home so far in the CBI Championship series. Everything comes down to a final game three in Eugene, Oregon. For Creighton it will be their 39th game of the season. Who would have thought that?
Tonight should be a sellout at Oregon as they are doing everything they can to sell tickets for this one. We were out there for Wednesday’s game, but unfortunately won’t be there for Friday. So if you are like us, you need a way to follow the game. Here are your options for tracking the 9:05 tipoff on Friday night.
These games will be televised by HDNet. As the name of the channel suggests, yes they will be in HD. However, the channel is not offered in Omaha on Cox Communications, nor in Lincoln on Time Warner Cable. However, there are still ways to watch.
- The games are available on Satellite providers DirecTV on channel 79 or 306 and Dish Network channel 362.
- In Nebraska, HDNet is available on the following cable systems: Charter Cable (Grand Island area), Great Plains Cable (Western Nebraska) and Huntel Cablevision (now known as American Broadband) with Blair being the closest location that would be carrying the game on cable.
- For the rest of the nation, check here and enter your zip code to find where HDNet is available in your area.
- Locally, all of the DJ’s Dugout locations, Union Pizzeria and Sports Bar, The Mattress Factory and the Bluejay Bar and other sports bars should be carrying the game.
