USF has announced Saturday's 2 p.m. spring intrasquad game at Corbett Stadium will be streamed live (barring any glitches) and available on demand via a new Jeff Vinik-backed digital network.

The game will be the first sporting event broadcast by The Identity Tampa Bay, under the control of Tampa Bay Entertainment Properties (TBEP), which Vinik launched in 2017. The entity, which manages the Sun Dome, entered a 10-year multimedia rights deal with USF last year.

The live stream can be accessed on several different devices including through TheIdentityTB.com website, iOS and Android apps, and on Roku and Apple TV.

The game also will be aired live on the USF Radio Network (820-AM), with the longtime Bulls broadcast tandem of Jim Louk and Mark Robinson calling the action for both the radio and live-stream simulcast. Network regulars Joey Johnson, Jim Lighthall and Rock Riley also will join the coverage.

Coverage of the game starts at 1:40 p.m. Fans attending the game are encouraged to access campus via Bull Run Drive from Fowler Avenue to park in the Sun Dome lots, or via N. 50th St. to park in the Sycamore Drive lot.

Normal pregame tailgating activities will be allowed in campus lots. The pregame festivities will include live music, food trucks, bounce houses and other kids' activities.
