Most of you know by now that I am a huge FSU Seminoles fan. I love to attend the games, but Tallahassee is a good 4 hours from home so I normally just enjoy the games from the comfort of my couch on my HD Tv! FSU is having an awesome year. They are undefeated, and as of this week they are number 2 in the nation. With an Oregon or Alabama loss they will land in the BCS Championship bowl if they remain undefeated.
Last week the Noles played the number 7 team in the nation, Miami. This was the featured game of the week on College Gameday, and all week there had been tons of hype leading up to this 7pm game. Needless to say I had phsyced myself up and was totally planning to stay home and watch this game.
I was presented with a huge delimma Saturday afternoon. Two of our favorite friends invited us to a local college game. They had free tickets and all. When i received the text, “What are you guys doing tonight? We have Jags tickets, wanna go?!” My first reaction was…. will I be back home in time to watch the Noles game. I slowly erased that ill advised text and immediately began searching for options to watch my game on my phone.
The best solution that I came up with was Justin.tv. This does require flash. Flash is easy enough to install. Simply grab the flash apk, and install it like you would any other sideload app. Once installed you will have to grab a browser that supports it. My favorite browser is FireFox. Then navigate to justin.tv on your phone. If your game is being broadcast on TV then chances are it will be rebroadcast there. This worked perfectly for me. I was able to attend a live NCAA football game, and still catch my FSU game!
