3:30 Eastern ABC Map ESPN Reverse Mirror
Another weekend and another slate of good games. Nebraska and Iowa have to be setting a record with three straight 3:30 PM ABC regional games. The interesting thing is that they are so close to each other that parts of each state do not get the game of the team from their state on ABC. This week both games on ABC involve two ranked teams #5 Michigan State at #18 Iowa and #6 Missouri at #14 Nebraska. The only question is which game will be in HD in the reverse mirror.
If I were a fan of either team, I would want my team to go to less of the country on ABC, so I could be in the reverse mirror on ESPN HD. My prediction is that Missouri will be riding high off their upset of Oklahoma last week, and will get more of the country on ABC, thus putting them in SD to the rest of the country. I could be wrong about that though. Let me know in the comments if you have a prediction.
***Update MSU at Iowa is going to 77% of the country on ABC, so if they follow their recent history, it will be available only in Standard Definition on ESPN.
