No ESPN Coverage! How To Catch The Griz Playoffs.
Since ESPN is not televising some of the FCS playoff games, you can still catch all the play-by-play action! Here's how:Our two sister stations in Missoula: KGVO 1290AM and 96.3 The Blaze will both air the game live on the radio. You will not be able to hear the games on these stations' live web streams, but can stream the game online here.
Also, fans have started a petition on facebook to ask ESPN to carry the first and second round FSC playoff games.
This is what ESPN has to say:
"ESPN makes its programming decisions based on a number of factors, including viewership, as reflected by ratings and the interest from advertisers and affiliates, on a nationwide basis.
