Verizon to broadcast 24 college bowl games on V Cast

verizon vcastJust in case you are a graduate of, say, Southern Missouri, Boise State, or South Florida, and can’t make it to your beloved team’s bowl game, don’t despair. Verizon Wireless has you covered.

If you subscribe to Verizon Wireless.

And if you have a V Cast enabled phone.

If you do, and you’re out Christmas shopping and not in front of the big-screen TV with chips and beer, then you can watch your team on a really tiny screen. But, hey, something is better than nothing when it comes to bowl season, right?

ESPN Mobile TV, CBS Mobile TV, and Fox Mobile will be bringing complete NCAA bowl games to Verizon Wireless V CAST TV this month — but only 24 of the “lesser” bowls, not the biggies like the Capitol One Bowl (Michigan vs. Florida), the Rose Bowl (USC vs. Illinois), and the BCS Championship game on Jan.7 between Ohio State and LSU.

That means V CAST has you covered should you want to watch the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl (Utah vs. Navy), the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl (Memphis vs. Florida Atlantic), and the Chick-fil-A Bowl (Clemson vs. Auburn)

Mixed in are some fairly good matchups: AT&T Cotton Bowl (Arkansas vs. Missouri), Gator Bowl (Texas Tech vs. Virgina), but what’s the Sugar Bowl called these days? Or is that the BCS game? These name-in-title sponsors sure make things difficult.

Here’s Verizon’s full schedule of games.
