A little surprise from the Athletic Department

The USF athletic department came through.

They knew the troubles that were brewing with the ESPN 360 channel – the high-speed internet channel which was the only broadcast of Saturday’s USF at Pittsburgh game.

Saturday’s game will now be shown on a giant screen in the Sun Dome, available for students and fans to watch.

Admission and parking will be free of charge, and the event is sponsored by University Financial Service, USF’s Athletics partner in Student Loan Consolidation.

Entry 3 on the southeast corner of the Sun Dome will open at 1:30 p.m. and gametime is at 2 p.m.

Sun Dome concession stands will be open, and there will be appearances by the USF SunDolls and cheerleaders.

Put me in coach: Former USF football player DeAndrew Rubin signed with the Detroit Lions on Wednesday and will participate on the practice squad.
