Mediacom Adds Saturday Hawkeyes Game
IOWA CITY - Hawkeye fans can breathe easy: Saturday's game will be on Mediacom after all.
The 11 a.m. Iowa-Purdue game is on ESPNU, which Mediacom doesn't carry. But the company has reached a deal to simulcast the game on the Mediacom Connections Channel. That's cable channel 22 in Cedar Rapids most of Eastern Iowa, and channel 74 in Iowa City.
A manager says the game is a preview of ESPNU for Mediacom customers, and the company may add the channel to its digital lineup in the future.
The Connections Channel is also carrying the UNI-Missouri State game at 4 p.m. Saturday.
