Notre Dame, Miami To Headline ESPN Networks’ College Football Week 11 Broadcast Schedule

Courtesy: ESPN

Two of college football’s Top 10 teams will headline this week’s college football broadcast schedule across the ESPN networks.

No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 10 Miami will go under the lights Saturday night on ABC’s Saturday Night Football presented by Wells Fargo.  Saturday’s matchup marks only the fourth time that Notre Dame and Miami have faced each other since 1990 and the first time Miami has hosted Notre Dame since 1989.

Saturday’s matchup has plenty of key story lines.  Notre Dame running back Josh Adams is working hard to make his case for the Heisman Trophy this year.  So far this season, he has racked up almost 1,200 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.  The Fighting Irish’s head coach Brian Kelly has led a dramatic turnaround for the team this season, too.  After finishing last season at 4-8, this season has seen the team go 8-1 so far.

Miami head coach Mark Richt is in only his second year at the Hurricanes’ helm, has the team in the national spotlight for the first time in more than a decade.

While the Irish and ‘Canes are the headliners for this week’s ESPN networks college football broadcast schedule, it is only one of the games on that extensive schedule.  The networks’ Week 11 coverage opens Tuesday, Nov. 7 with a double header as Miami (Ohio) hosts Akron on ESPN2 and Buffalo hosts Bowling Green on ESPNU.  Coverage of both games is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.

The action continues Nov. 7 with another double header on ESPN2 and ESPNU respectively.  Toledo and Ohio are up first at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.  Eastern and Central Michigan follow at 8 p.m. on ESPNU.

North Carolina is on the road Thursday against Pittsburgh, with coverage starting at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN and ESPN Radio.  Over on ESPNU, Appalachian State plays host to Georgia Southern beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Friday will see yet another double header with the struggling Cincinnati Bearcats hosting the Temple Owls at 7 p.m. on ESPN2 and UNLV hosting BYU at 10:30 p.m. on ESPN2.

Saturday sees lots of action beginning at high noon as No. 15 Iowa State hosts No. 11 Oklahoma State either on ABC or ESPN2.  Seven more games are also scheduled across the networks at noon including games on ESPN Radio, the SEC Network and ESPN3.  This week’s action winds down Saturday night at 10:15 p.m. on ESPNU as Wyoming plays on the road against Air Force.

The ESPN networks’ full college football week 11 broadcast schedule is noted below.

No. 19 Michigan, No. 2 Penn State To Headline ESPN Networks’ College Football Week 8 Schedule

Courtesy: ESPN

The start of Week 8 in college football’s 2017 – ’18 season is almost here.

Week 8 starts with a Thursday night double-header schedule.  Arkansas State plays host to Louisiana live at 7:30 p.m. on ESPNU to open the night.  That game will be followed at 8 p.m. on ESPN with Houston playing host to No. 25 Memphis.

The weekend’s action continues Friday night with another double-header schedule beginning at 7 p.m. on ESPN2 as Marshall plays on the road against Middle Tennesse.  Colorado State and New Mexico follow at 10:15 on ESPN2.

Saturday offers a jam packed, near daylong schedule that will be headlined by a matchup of No. 19 Michigan at No. 2 Penn State live on ABC’s Saturday Night Football presented by Wells Fargo.  Coverage of the game is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday’s game carries big implications for the Nittany Lions.  The team upset then-No. 2 Ohio State in what has come to be its “White Out” game live on Saturday Night Football.  That win would be the precursor to the Nittany Lions’ Big 10 Championship and Rose Bowl appearance.  The win also would be Penn State’s ninth consecutive win on the season.

Michigan is the last Big 10 team to defeat Penn State, going back to Sept. 2016.  The team also has the edge on Penn State, winning the teams’ last three matchups.

While the Wolverines and Nittany Lions are the headliners for the ESPN networks’ college football week 8 schedule, they are not the only teams that will play live across the networks this weekend.  No. 10 Oklahoma State and Texas open Saturday’s schedule at noon on ABC.  No. 18 Michigan State will play host to Indiana at 3:30 p.m. on ABC while No. 24 LSU will be on the road against Ole Miss at 7:15 p.m. on ESPN.

ESPN To Close 2017 MLB Regular Season Schedule With “Western” Showdown

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN will close out its coverage of Major League Baseball’s 2017 regular season later this month with a modern day “Western” showdown.

The Dodgers and Astros will face off Sept. 24 live in ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell.  Los Angeles currently leads the NL West at 92 – 51, 11 games ahead of the division’s second-place team, the Arizona Diamondbacks.  Houston leads the AL West at 86 – 57, 13 games ahead of the second place Angels.

Neither team has announced its starting lineup for the game, which will be the closer for the teams’ three-game series.  The game is currently scheduled for an 8:05 p.m. start time according to the league’s official website.

Dan Shulman will have the call for the game.  He will be joined in the booth by analysts Jessica Mendoza and Aaron Boone for additional commentary.  Reporter Buster Olney will have all of the game’s latest news and interviews.

Jon Sciambi and Chris Singleton will have the game’s call on ESPN Radio.

Indians, Orioles Close 3-Game Series Sunday Live On ESPN

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN will feature an American League interdivisional matchup this weekend on Sunday Night Baseball.

The American League Central-leading Cleveland Indians will play host to the Baltimore Orioles (American League East) live at Progressive Field.  Broadcast of Sunday’s game is currently scheduled to start at 8 p.m. with Dan Shulman on the call.

He will be joined in the booth by analysts Jessica Mendoza and Aaron Boone for additional commentary.  Reporter Buster Olney will be on hand for all of the game’s latest news and interviews.

Sunday night’s broadcast will be preceded by Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown presented by Chevrolet at 7 p.m. ET.  Karl Ravech will anchor the broadcast and will be joined by David Ross and Tim Kurkjian for additional commentary.

Jon Sciambi and Chris Singleton will have the game’s call on ESPN Radio.  They will also call the second game in the teams’ three-game series Saturday on ESPN Radio.

Trevor Bauer (15 – 8) is expected to get the start for Cleveland Sunday night while  Jeremy Hellickson (8 – 8) is expected to take the mound for Baltimore.

Cleveland is currently looking strong as the regular season nears its end. It was riding a 14-game win streak at last report and was looking for its 15th straight win Thursday night as it played the Chicago White Sox.  It earned its 14th straight win against the White Sox Wednesday night in a 5 – 1 win.

Cleveland’s home record has proven respectable, too at 36 – 29 so far this season.  The Indians have proven to be just as good on the road as at home, too, going 47 – 27 so far this season on the road.

Baltimore currently sits third in the AL East, eight games back from the division-leading Boston Red Sox.  The Orange Birds have struggled this season on the road, going 27 – 39 so far on that record.  The team has done considerably better at home with a 44 – 30 home record so far and will be looking to bounce back in this weekend’s series after falling to the Yankees at home Thursday 9 – 1.

More information on Sunday’s series closer between the Orioles and Indians is available online now along with all of the latest MLB headlines at http://www.espn.com/mlb.

Monday Night Football rounds out ESPN’s Week 1 NFL coverage with a special double header schedule on Sept. 11. The first game on the night will see the Vikings playing host to the Saints in Minneapolis while Denver will host San Diego in the night’s second game.

Sean McDonough will have the call for the night’s lead-off game and will be joined in the booth by Jon Gruden for more commentary.  Lisa Salters will be on the sidelines with all of the latest news and interviews throughout the game.
