UM-UCF will be televised locally

Comcast Network announced late Wednesday afternoon it will provide a free preview of CBS College Sports in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties and the Florida Keys, allowing for Saturday's game between ninth-ranked UM and UCF to be seen locally.

The game will be available on Comcast channel 744.

If not for the deal, the 900,000 homes in South Florida that subscribe to the cable service wouldn't have been able to see the game. The Dish Network (channel 152) and DirectTV (channel 613) carry the CBS College Sports channel, but Comcast does not locally.

The game is also being made available to watch online through hurricanesports.cstv.com at a pay per view rate of $14.95 for standard definition and $19.95 for high definition.

Here is how the game will be made available statewide...
