Courtesy: ESPN

College baseball fans got some good news this week.  Officials with ESPN announced Monday that ESPN and the ESPN family of networks will have full coverage of the 2016 NCAA Division I College Baseball Championship this year.  It marks the fourth consecutive year that they will cover the road to the title.

The ESPN networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, SEC Network, and ESPN3 specifically) will have coverage of all 153 possible championship games.  This includes Regionals (up to 112 games from 16 sites June 3 – 6), Super Regionals (Up to 24 games from all eight sites June 10 – 12 or June 11 – 13) and College World Series (Up to 17 games June 18 – 29).  Each game will be simulcast online via WatchESPN.  Each Regional tournament is a double elimination format with four teams participating at each site.  The winner of each regional tournament moves on to the Super Regionals.

For the true hardcore college baseball fans, ESPN’s four-day “Bases Loaded” platform returns this year for the Regionals.  ESPN’s “Bases Loaded” platform features unlimited live cut-ins and highlights from a number of games in the Regionals.  It also features up-to-the-minute commentary from ESPN analysts.  The platform is provided once again by ESPNU and Goal Line/Buzzer Beater, with ESPN and ESPN2 to have simulcasts.  Matt Schick and Brendan Fitzgerald will anchor coverage of the Regionals.  They will be joined by analyst Kyle Peterson for additional commentary.  As an additional note, networks for Games 3 and 4 on Saturday and each Game 5 across the EPNS networks will be decided the night before their broadcast.  The same applies for games on Monday, June 6th if necessary.  The networks for Sunday’s Game 6 matchups will be determined and assigned Sunday afternoon, June 5th. The broadcast schedule for the Regionals is noted below.

Weather Forces Changes To ESPN’s Weekend CFB Broadcast Schedule

Courtesy:  ESPN

Courtesy: ESPN

South Carolina has been devasted by the recent rains that came through the area last week. The effects of the low pressure system that went through the area were far reaching to say the very least. Homes and lands have been flooded, and roads have been washed out. So far fourteen people have lost their lives as a result of the weather. It goes without saying that all of those affected by that weather system are in the thoughts and prayers of the country. Today it was announced that that same system has had even more effect as this weekend’s matchup between the Gamecocks and Tigers has been moved.

Officials with LUS and South Carolina have announced that the game, which was previously scheduled to be held in South Carolina Saturday at noon will now be played at LSU Saturday afternoon at 3:30pm ET. The game will still be broadcast live on ESPN despite the change. Five others games have seen some changes in their scheduling on the ESPN networks as a result of this change. Those games are: Indiana @ Penn St., Illinois @ #22 Iowa, Tulane @ Temple, Minnesota @ Perdue, and Connecticut at UCF.
