how do you know what NCAA game you will get on tv in your area?

how can i find out what ncaa game i will get in my area tomorrow? is it based on what "region" is closest to you? if so, then it would obviously be the austin region.... or is it based on what team playing is closest to your viewing area?

there must be a schedule some where



i assume this should be in sports talk vs. tv talk, but if not please move

I found it at the website of my local CBS station... would probably be listed there.

The reason is if you have an Over-The-Air HD receiver, or maybe digital cable (not sure about this one) the station can broadcast multiple games on one channel. You can flip between in ATL channel 46, channel 46.1 (hi-def) and channel 46.2 (DTV, standard def). Three different games on all day. I am in love.
