Bison, Eagles Vie For 2019 FCS CFB Championship Saturday On ESPN2

Courtesy: ESPN

North Dakota State University and Eastern Washington will compete for the FCS College Football Championship this weekend, and ESPN will have full coverage of the game.

The network announced in a news release sent Wednesday, that the game will be played Saturday in Frisco, Texas. Coverage is scheduled to start at 11:30 a.m. with FCS Championship Game Preview on ESPNEWS.  Gametime coverage is scheduled to start at noon on ESPN2 and the ESPN app.  A Spanish-language broadcast will air on ESPN3.

North Dakota State is undefeated coming into Saturday’s FCS Championship match, and will look to defend its 2017 title.  If the Bison win the title this year, it will be the team’s seventh title in eight years.  For Eastern Washington, a title win would be the team’s first since 2010.

NDSU is led by Walter Payton Award Finalist, quarterback Easton Stick, running back Bruce Anderson and linebacker Jabril Cox.  Head Coach Chris Klieman is in his final season with the Bison, and will take over the head coaching position at Kansas State starting in the 2019 season. Klieman holds a 68-6 record during his time at the helm of NDSU’s football program.

The Walter Payton Award — named after NFL great and former Jackson State University standong Walter Payton — is presented annually to the FCS’ top offensive player.  It is voted on by a national panel of media and college sports information directors.

The Eagles are led by quarterback Eric Barriere and an offense that is ranked third in the nation in yards per play and a defense that is second in turnovers.  This is Head Coach Aaron Best’s first season leading Eastern Washington, after spending more than 20 years with the team, four of which were as a player.

More than a year has past since the Bison and Eagles met on the gridiron.  The last time the teams met was Sept. 9, 2017 at Roos Field in Cheney, WA.  North Dakota State University won that match 41-3.

Taylor Zarzour, Matt Stinchcomb and Kris Budden will have the call for Saturday’s FCS Championship game.  Budden will anchor the game’s pre-game broadcast and will be joined by analysts Rene and Jay Walker for additional commentary.

University of California Davis Head Coach and former ESPN analyst Dan Hawkins will be a special guest on the pre-game broadcast.  Hawkins led the Aggies to a 10-win season this year.  Those wins included seven conference victories — both stats are new school records.

As a result of his success this year, Hawkins was named the Eddie Robinson FCS Coach of the Year this season.  The Eddie Robinson FCS Coach of the Year Award — named for legendary Grambling State University coach Eddie Robinson — is presented to the FCS’ top Head Coach.  It was established by Stats, LLC.  the award is voted on by a select group of information directors and sports writers from the FCS.

ESPN Networks Announce Broadcast Schedule For Week 11 Of College Football’s 2018 Season

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN has announced its broadcast schedule for Week 11 of the 2018 college football season.

This week’s schedule features a number of games that have major playoff implications.  One of the most notable of the week’s games is an ACC matchup between undefeated No. 2 Clemson and No. 22 Boston College.  The headlining Saturday Night Football game is scheduled to air live at 8 p.m. Saturday on ABC.

ESPN’s College GameDay Built by the Home Depot will set up the game Saturday morning starting at 9 a.m.  It will broadcast live from the campus of Boston College.  Saturday’s broadcast marks the first time since 2009 that College GameDay Built by the Home Depot has aired from Boston College.

The Eagles are 4-1 in ACC play and second to Clemson in the ACC’s Atlantic Division.  The matchup is critical in Clemson’s search for a division (and conference) title, and for the team’s hopes for a spot in this year’s College Football playoffs.

Other key matchups featured in this week’s schedule are No. 7 Oklahoma taking on Oklahoma State at 3:30 p.m. on ABC and No. 8 Washington State on the road against Colorado at the same time on ESPN.  Both games have their own importance to this year’s college football playoffs impacts.

Also, if the Sooners and Cougars each win their games, they will play in their respective conference title games.  A win for either team additionally puts each group in good position to be considered for the playoffs.

Georgia hosts Auburn at 7 p.m. on ESPN in yet another key matchup for Week 11. ESPN2 will feature yet another big game at noon as UCF and Navy (AAC) face off in Florida.  The Knights have the nation’s longest winning streak while the Midshipmen are coming off a loss to Cincinnati in Week 10, so they will be hungry to get back in the “W” column, and to stop the Knights’ streak.

The full schedule of this week’s games is noted below.

ESPN Announces CFB Media Days Broadcast Schedule

Courtesy: ESPN

The official start of the 2018 college football season is still a couple of months away, but ESPN is getting a head start on this season’s action.

The worldwide leader in sports announced its upcoming Media Days broadcast schedule on Wednesday.  The ESPN networks’ college football coverage launches with the return on Monday of College Football Live at 6:30 p.m. ET.  Monday’s broadcast will air live on ESPN2 from the College Football Hall of Fame and SEC kickoff.  The SEC Network will also be part of the SEC Kickoff from July 15 – 19.

After Monday’s broadcast, the 30-minute broadcast will air at its normal 3:30 and 5 p.m. time slots on ESPN2. Later in the month, College Football Live will also air live from the Pac-12 Media Day on July 25 at 3:30 p.m.

If ESPN2’s College Football Live coverage isn’t enough for college football fans, the ESPN networks’ extensive media day coverage will appease those fans. ESPNU and the ACC Network Plus will be live at the ACC Football Kickoff from July 18-19 while ESPNU and the Longhorn Network will broadcast live coverage of the Big 12 Media Days from July 16 and 17.

Online, ESPN3 will stream seven Media Days:  AAC (July 23-24), Conference USA (July 19), MAC (July 24), Sun Belt (July 23), Big South (July 24) Northeast  (July 24) and Southland (July 19).

As an added bonus for fans, ESPN will play host to two of college football’s greatest names as part of its early pre-season coverage later this month at its headquarters.  Clemson coach Dabo Swinny will appear on ESPN’s networks July 23.  Nick Saban will follow the very next day, July 24.

The ESPN networks’ full media days broadcast schedule is noted below.

The countdown to the 2018 NFL Draft is on, and in anticipation, ESPN is doing its part to build anticipation for the big pre-season weekend.

ESPN announced Tuesday a schedule consisting of more than 40 hours of original NFL programming leading up to the big event later this month.  It all starts tonight at 10 p.m. on ESPN2 with the new limited weekly series Inside The EA Sports Madden Ultimate League and continues Wednesday night at 7 p.m. on ESPN2 with SportsCenter SpecialMel and Todd’s Dueling Mocks.

Inside The EA Sports Madden Ultimate League takes audiences behind the scenes of what has become one of the NFL’s biggest e-sports competitions — Madden NFL ’18.  Viewers will be introduced to the tournament’s competitors who will be vying for the first-ever Ultimate League championship and part of a $500,000 cash prize.

In the second night of coverage leading up to the draft, Mel Kiper and Todd McShay go toe-to-toe with their mock drafts in an hour-long SportsCenter special.  Suzy Kolber will anchor the broadcast.  ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter will also be on hand throughout the broadcast for additional insight and commentary.

The second week of the ESPN networks’ special NFL draft leadup coverage opens April 10 at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN2 in Hey RookieWelcome to the NFL.  Produced by NFL Films, this four-part series follows soon-to-be NFL rookies Saquon Barkley and Bardley Chubb as they wind down their college football careers in preparation for professional careers on the gridiron.  It will be followed at 9 p.m. on ESPN2 by SportsCenter SpecialDraft Room Simulation.

SportsCenter SpecialDraft Room Simulation is an hour-long presentation that takes audiences behind the scenes of what happens in each team’s war room on draft day.  Trey Wingo will anchor the broadcast.  He will be joined by NFL Hall of Famer and former NFL General Manager Bill Polian, former NFL Director of Pro Personnel Louis Riddick, NFL Draft Analyst Todd McShay and NFL reported Field Yates.  Yates also formerly worked in coaching and scouting with the Patriots and Chiefs.

The second week of the ESPN networks’ buildup to the draft winds down April 12 at 7 p.m. on ESPN with We The FansDallas.  This four-part-series follow a dozen Cowboys fans over the course of the 2017 season.  Replays of the hour-long episodes will be available via the ESPN app and ESPN Video on Demand.
