The “Battle of the Bay State’’ gets underway at Gillette Stadium at 3 p.m., but for those Boston College and UMass fans who can’t make the trip to Foxborough, trying to find it on regular TV may be an exercise in futility.
No local or national station is carrying the game on the ole tube, but fear not! Providing you have an internet connection and a cable subscription, you can stream the game live online.
ESPN 3 will carry the live stream of the game starting at 3 p.m. at this web address. To watch the stream, login with your cable provider credentials (Comcast XFINITY and Verizon Fios customers both have access) and follow the instructions on the page.
If you don’t mind not actually seeing the game, you can always listen to the game live on the radio on WEEI 850 AM.
