Not coming to a TV near you: OSU vs Hawaii game to only air on Facebook Live

The only way that Beaver fans who are not attending the match up in Honolulu can watch is through Facebook Live

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The upcoming game between Oregon State and Hawaii on Saturday night will not be televised on any local channels or cable. 

The only way that Beaver fans who are not attending the match up can watch is through Facebook Live.

A local business in Corvallis is worried about how this move will affect its customers.

“I don’t know what we are going to do,” said Gary Evans, the manager of Clodfelter’s Bar and Grill. “We have five TVs and there’s no way we are going to be able to put it on the TV I guess we will all just have to huddle around a laptop or something.”

No matter if it is a home or an away game, businesses like Clodfelter’s benefit from televised games as fans enjoy coming in to watch the game while grabbing a bite to eat or a drink.

“It sucks, and it’s not good for us, it just makes things hard, and even worse that the game is so late,” Evans said.

Oregon State has already had a rough start to the season with a 52-36 loss against Oklahoma State University on Friday night.
