    I see that Tuesday’s beach match vs. USC is being televised on OC Sports, but anyone know if it will be streamed online? Can’t seem to find a link anywhere.

    Don’t think it’s being streamed online.

    What time is today’s beach match on TV. Paper has conflicting times. Article says 4P , on the air says 7p, TV guide says 7P??

    5. Just checked the OC Sports site and it looks like they updated the links since this morning, and there’s one for today’s USC match. Thank goodness. Since moving to the mainland, UH sports streaming is one of the ways I keep in touch with home base. 🙂
