Looks like ESPN2 for USF-UNC game
There's not much difference besides the prestige, but next week's USF-North Carolina game, announced Monday as being either on ESPN or ESPN2, looks to be headed for the latter, according to ESPN.com's online schedule. ESPN is opting for the West Virginia-East Carolina game instead.
There is barely any difference in terms of national reach -- ESPN is available in less than a half-million more homes than ESPN2, which is still a fair amount of fans, but not much when you consider that they both reach more than 90-million homes.
The Bulls, by the way, have won three straight games on ESPN2, including last year's wins against West Virginia and East Carolina, plus Saturday's upset of No. 17 Auburn.
