The 2015 – 2016 NCAA college football season is less than a month away. As anticipation builds for the new season so do the discussions on who will take the title this year. Knowing that said discussions have already begun, ESPN announced this week the return of its College Football Playoff: Top 25 broadcast.
ESPN’s 2015 College Football: Top 25 will debut on Tuesday, October 20th. It is one of two broadcasts leading up to the NCAA’s first official ranking announcement on Tuesday, November 3rd. Rece Davis will host the half-hour debate program. He will be joined by analysts Kirk Herbstreit, Joey Galloway, Danny Kanell, and David Pollack. The program will run each week through Sunday December 6th, rounding out the last full week of the regular season. Army and Navy face off Saturday, December 12th, but are the only two teams that play that day, making Week 14 the last full official week of the regular season.
On Tuesday, November 17th, ESPN will air live a special edition of 2015 College Football Playoff: Top 25. It will come live from the State Farm Champions Classic basketball event at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The weekly announcement will be made at 9:30pm ET between the evening’s two games–Kansas vs. Michigan State, Kentucky vs. Duke.
The December 6th edition of College Football Playoff: Top 25 will be a four-hour edition. During this broadcast, Davis and company will announce the Semifinal pairings for this year’s NCAA Division I college football playoffs. They will also announce the six bowl games scheduled for New Year’s Day, and the Top 25 rankings. It all kicks off at noon eastern time on ESPN.
