Georgia Tech-South Florida: TV, online, radio information


One week after recording a 41-0 home victory against Alcorn State to open the season, Georgia Tech takes to the road for what should provide a much tougher test. 

The Yellow Jackets will meet South Florida, a member of the American Athletic Conference, in another early-afternoon time slot. The Bulls are coached by Charlie Strong, who in his first season in Tampa led his team to an 11-2 record, and one of those losses was to Central Florida, which finished the season 13-0 and declared itself national champs.

Here is some important information regarding how to follow the action:

Time: Noon ET

Date: Saturday, Sept. 8

Location: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Fla.

Television: ABC will televise the game, and it will be shown in the Atlanta market on WSB Channel 2 Action News. Adam Amin is handling play-by-play. Rod Gilmore is the analyst, and Quint Kessenich is the sideline reporter.

Streaming: The game is available online at WatchESPN.com. 

Local radio: The game will be broadcast on the Georgia Tech IMG Sports Network, heard in metro Atlanta on The Fan 680/93.7. Andy Demetra is handling play-by-play. Sean Bedford is the analyst, and Wiley Ballard is the sideline reporter.
