College football TV broadcasts take backseat to Pope in Philly

Philadelphia is most definitely a pro sports town, even though Temple is off to a 3-0 start this season with wins over Penn State and Cincinnati in the first two weeks. Today the Pope is visiting the City of Brotherly Love, and the local media outlets are going all out in providing as much coverage of the Pope’s trip as possible. That means college football is being bumped off the airwaves from the main networks.

Notre Dame’s home game against UMass is being moved from NBC 10 in Philadelphia to the My Network TV affiliate, which also carries a 10 o’clock newscast with the NBC affiliate’s staff. It is not often Notre Dame football gets moved from its NBC home, but when the Pope comes to town even the Irish give up their seat.
