    Game tonight on Directv?

    I know the game is on WOI Ch 5. Our local ABC affiliate.
    However, my Directv guide doesnt show it. And when i go online, and put in my zip code (Clive), it still doesnt show it.
    Does anyone know if the game will be on Ch 5 on Directv? Or are they overriding the local programming somehow?

    Thanks!!

    I found it by searching for it (Texas Tech @ Iowa State), and found it. I think it is on ESPN2. Of course, I'm in Colorado, so programming may be different.

    You could just make the 45 minute drive from Clive and see the game in person too...

    I think thats what I'm going to end up doing. Thought about having a watch party at my place instead. I serve beer. ;-)

    Anyway, thanks for the smart-*** answer *******.

    Maybe it's on one of the back up channels, 5.8 or something.

    My DirecTV guide on Saturday didn't show the Big 12 Network games that were on Channel 5 either and the games were still shown. Must be a Channel 5 issue with getting their programming information to DirecTV.

    It is 2011 and they don't even broadcast the games in HDTV correctly, how would you expect them to do this simple task?

    You're welcome!

    Since the game is at 8 our group is heading up after work and hitting an establishment for some food and drinks prior to the game. If you have balcony seats and neighbors that won't rat you out to an usher it's still possible to drink beer while at the game. Just sneak a few in your winter coat and don't make a big production out of it in your seats, we've done it before. In fact I should just get a few shooters of captain morgan to spike my coke with. And if you do happen to get caught then this post will self destruct in 5...4...3...2...

    That's the Texas Tech/FS Southwest feed and outside of Texas, it will be blacked out.

    On wed night games we seem to always go to Olde Main for $1 pints, the beer is hit n miss sometimes, but cheap. Otherwise we always go to WAS.
