They really need to catch up with the times and eliminate the blackout by zip code.. TW doesnt stretch to the entire state so where would people watch the game on local channels?

What about all the RU fans in NYC? Will they both have to miss the game? :)

It will be on SNY. That being said if they really want to see the game they should COME.

Well, there are Syracuse fans who don't have SNY. I don't get SNY here in North Carolina, so my only way to watch the game is on ESPN3. There are tons of other people like that.

That's been a pet peeve of mine as well. They should cross-reference geolocation data with channel availability in that market or by that channel before imposing blackout restrictions.

Local affiliates can pick up the feed if they choose to, as long as they are not in a blacked out zip code. Here in Pittsburgh the local ABC affiliate (WTAE) is carrying the game.

Where do you live?

It wasn't blacked out in Atlanta.

How did Rutgers get you to think they have fans in NYC? Come to think of it how did they get anyone to think they have fans outside of their campus?
