TAMPA - The University of South Florida's regular-season finale against BIG EAST foe West Virginia on Thursday, Dec. 1 in Tampa will be broadcast on ESPN 3D, the network announced on Monday. In addition, the Bulls' game at Pittsburgh on Thursday, Sept. 29 will be broadcast on ESPN 3D. USF is one of only a handful of teams that will have multiple games aired in 3D this year.
"I think that is pretty exciting," said USF head coach Skip Holtz. "I'm not totally sure I understand everything that goes into 3D, but to have them come to Tampa and show Raymond James Stadium and our players will be exciting. We talk about television exposure as it relates to our program and this is just another sign of how South Florida is rising on a national level."
This won't be the first time the ESPN 3D crew hits Tampa. In 2008, they visited Raymond James Stadium when the Bulls hosted Kansas to test the development of its 3D broadcasts.
ESPN 3D is the television industry's first 3D network and brings together more than three years of research and development by multiple departments throughout the company. It is available nationwide to more than 65 million households and has carriage agreements with Comcast, DIRECTV, Time Warner Cable and Verizon FiOS.
