Gophers vs. Aggies will not be broadcast live on TV


The University of Minnesota Gophers are slated to face the New Mexico State Aggies on Sept. 7 but the game will not be broadcast live on television in the Twin Cities area, according to a University of Minnesota Athletics Department press release.

Instead, the game will be shown on tape delay on Fox Sports North Sunday and Monday following the game in Las Cruces, N.M. The game, however, can be viewed locally on a computer or mobile device via BTN2Go and can be heard on KFAN-AM or live audio-streamed at

"“While not an ideal situation, we are pleased that fans who may not listen to the game on the radio or watch it through BTN2Go can still watch it on television at some point,” said Chris Werle, Minnesota Senior Associate Director of Athletics. “We do not control the rights to away games, but we do everything we can to ensure our fans have every opportunity to see us play on as many screens as possible.”"

The game can be seen on these channels only:

  • • FoxSports Arizona PLUS (Channel 695 on DirecTV)
  • • Altitude 2 (Channel 682 on DirecTV)
  • • Comcast systems throughout the state of New Mexico
  • • BTN2Go (download the free app at iTunes or Google Play)
