College football’s post season is officially here. And ESPN kicks off coverage this weekend with a broadcast of the annual awarding of the Heisman Trophy.

ESPN kicks off coverage of the 2015 college football bowl season this Saturday, December 12th with the broadcast of the annual Heisman Trophy Award ceremony. The ceremony will be carried live at 8pm ET on ESPN. The finalists in the running for the award were announced this past Monday December 7th. They are: Derrick Henry (RB – Alabama), Christian McCaffrey (RB – Stanford), and Deshaun Watson (QB – Clemson). Chris Fowler and Joe Tessitore will co-anchor Saturday night’s broadcast. They will be joined at the desk by analysts Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, Tim Tebow and Lee Corso. This year’s broadcast of the Heisman Trophy presentation has been extended to ninety minutes.

Saturday’s broadcast of the Heisman Trophy presentation is just one small part of the ESPN networks’ college football post season coverage. Beginning next Saturday, December 19th ESPN Events and the ESPN networks will carry all thirteen bowl games that are owned and operated by ESPN Events. The networks’ coverage runs right up to December 30th with the Birmingham Bowl.  That’s not where the games end, though.  ESPN and its networks will carry full coverage of the college football post season right up to the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl on January 2nd.

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. Those games will still be played at their original times and at their original venues. The only changes will be the networks on which audiences can see them. Those changes are all listed below.
