Stop Searching for the Game

As we dive deeper into football season, you might be diving deeper into your couch more often, to catch the action from all your teams. With so many games to cover, and so many networks – it can get hard to navigate and find what you are looking for. Great Plains Communications has found a tool to help you out. The website 506sports.com is a resource to bring you a list of what teams are playing on what channels fast, so all you have to worry about is putting the number into your remote and grabbing a drink. The site lists the time, network and sometimes even the announcers for every FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) game each week. If the game is only available through streaming, it provides that information as well.

It isn’t just college football that 506sports.com covers, they also include NFL and MLB. Pro football is broadcast differently than most national college games. On Sundays, NFL airs regionally. To explain the different regions and what to expect for the coming week, 506sports.com publishes a map illustrating what games each network is airing in each market area. You can find the maps here.

Hopefully this information saves time and frustration when planning your weekend viewing schedule. As you can see from the college football schedule, the Huskers take on Troy this Saturday at 11 AM CT, airing on the Big Ten Network.

It’s Husker Football Time!

We are only days away from the season we have all been waiting for; football season. It’s a time full of pride filled colors, tailgating and friendly competition. Husker Nation will stand strong this Saturday, September 1 as the Huskers take on Akron Zips at 7:00 PM on FOX. It’s a new year and we are looking to Coach Frost. Great Plains Communications is excited to see what this year will bring for the Huskers and we hope everyone enjoys the game this weekend.
