BYU vs Boise State game tonight: TV channel live stream start time

BYU faces off against Boise State in a game tonight which sees both teams in the midst of disappointing seasons. The BYU Cougars began the season 4-0 and were fodder for a national ranking but have since lost three games in a row as the season slips into chaos. The Boise State Broncos were the trendy pick for a non-major-conference team to make the playoffs but have ended any hope of that with two losses. Now each team badly needs a win tonight to keep things afloat. Despite both programs falling from grace, tonight’s game will air on a prominent TV channel as well as an online live stream.

Boise State still has a chance to win the Mountain West conference and score a major bowl game invite. Tonight’s game is a non-conference matchup, but it’ll need to avoid a third loss in order to keep hope of the latter alive. BYU arguably needs the win more badly, as its three game losing streak is a shocker for a team that had been ranked eighteen in the nation just last month. The Broncos have home field advantage in Idaho, but Cougars fans won’t have to far to travel from Utah.

Tonight’s BYU vs Boise State college football game has a start time schedule of 9:00pm eastern time and airs on TV channel ESPN nationwide, along with a live stream online at the watchespn.com site.

Haunted iOS 8.1 update bug surfaces: iPhone apps launching at random

Every software update from every vendor has its quirks and bugs – but this one from the new iOS 8.1 update for iPhone and iPad qualifies as one of the more surreal. When the phone is left with its screen turned on but not in use, apps on the home screen can launch at random. I can confirm this particular bug personally, oddly enough, because it’s happening to me. First it was my mapping app, then a few minutes later my camera app. Naturally, I initially assumed something was brushing up against the screen or that I had inadvertently told it to launch the apps through voice commands. But as I gradually removed variables and was still able to get the bug to repeat itself, I realized this was no joke: thanks to iOS 8.1, my iPhone appears to be haunted.

Most iOS software updates come with a smattering of odd bugs which only affect a small number of users, but those users tend to be rather loud in their complaints, creating the appearance that the glitch is affecting everyone involved. By the sound of it, for instance, the bluetooth bug in the iOS 8.0.2 update seemed to be impacting millions of users. But our investigations revealed that it was difficult to find anyone suffering from it by randomly sampling our readers or real-world users in general. It’s just that those who were hit by it were justifiably so upset that they turned into the town crier over it.

And now I’m that guy, the journalist who gets hit by an odd iOS 8.1 bug and can’t help but write about it. I’ve asked around among my colleagues and friends this evening, and have yet to find another user who has been affected by the same glitch. But if I’ve learned one thing covering iOS over the past seven years, it’s this: if my device suffers from a crash or other instability issues, there’s a good chance my install is merely corrupted. But if it’s something just plain weird like this, it’s more likely that it’s a bug affecting multiple users. So just one week before Halloween, I’m left waiting to learn who else’s iPhone appears to be “haunted” such that it keeps launching apps on its own, and how soon Apple will clear it up with the inevitable 8.1.1 update.

Oregon Ducks vs Cal Bears game tonight: time TV channel live stream

The Oregon Ducks face the Cal Bears in a game tonight which sees one team trying to atone for its sole loss on the schedule and the other trying to keep its season from going off the rails. Oregon was considered a likely participant in the college football playoffs in 2014, but a surprise loss to Arizona has put the team behind the eight ball, even as two dominant wins have followed. California is 4-3 with two losses in a row, and needs a win today to keep its winning record intact. Tonight’s game has a late start time, airs on a hard to find TV channel, and will also be available as a live stream online.

Oregon has knocked off UCLA and Washington in successive weeks, and now sits at number six in the polls with a 6-1 overall record and a 3-1 Pac 12 conference record. Cal has won games by the surreal scores of 60-59 and 59-56, but the offense ran out of gas somewhat the past two weeks as the defense continued its season long struggle. Cal has home field advantage today at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, and is hoping the home crowd will serve as enough of a boost to pull off the upset. However some Ducks fans will travel south for the game, which is vaguely within driving distance.

Tonight’s Oregon vs Cal college football schedule game has a start time of 10:00pm eastern time, 7:00pm pacific time, and airs on TV channel FS1 (Fox Sports 1). Those who can’t find that channel on the dial can turn instead to pac-12.com/live to watch the game as a live stream online.
