Hurricane Delta Causes Schedule Changes In ESPN Networks’ Weekly CFB Broadcast Schedule

Corutesy: ESPN

Mother nature is causing a change in the ESPN networks’ college football coverage this weekend.

Hurricane Delta’s expected impact along the Gulf Coast has caused the networks to make some programming shifts, including moving one of its two headline games — No. 2 Alabama and Ole Miss — to a later time. Instead of 6 p.m., coverage is now scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will still air on ESPN.

Saturday’s other headliner, No. 7 Miami and No. 1 Clemson remains scheduled to air at 7:30 p.m. on ABC. The game is the network’s weekly Saturday Night Football presented by Capital One game.

Other games that are moving due to Hurricane Delta are: Missouri and No. 17 LSU; Louisiana-Monroe at Liberty; Coastal Carolina at No. 23 Louisiana; Arkansas at No. 13 Auburn, and No. 4 Florida at No. 21 Texas A&M.

No. 2 Alabama at Ole Miss

Originally scheduled to air at 6 p.m. on ESPN, the game will now play at 7:30 p.m. ET. It will still air on ESPN and remain part of the ESPN networks’ weekly double header alongside No. 7 Miami at No. 1 Clemson, which will itself air on ABC at 7 p.m.

LSU vs. No. 17 LSU

Missouri at LSU was originally scheduled to air at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN, but has now moved up to noon ET. It will run on the SEC Network Alternate and the ESPN App instead of ESPN.

The game site will also move. It will move from Baton Rouge, LA to Columbia, MO. Even with the move, LSU is still considered the home team for the game. This game will re-air at 4 p.m. ET on the SEC Network.

LOUISIANA-MONROE AT LIBERTY

Louisiana-Monroe at Liberty was originally scheduled to take place at noon Saturday on ESPNU. Now due to Hurricane Delta, it has shifted to ESPN2 instead of ESPNU and will remain in its noon ET time slot.

COASTAL CAROLINA AT NO. 23 LOUISIANA

The Chanticleers and Ragin’ Cajuns were originally scheduled to square off at noon on ESPN2. That game is now shifted to 7:30 p.m. ET on Oct. 14. It will air on ESPN.

ARKANSAS AT No. 13 AUBURN

The Razorbacks and Tigers were originally scheduled to run at 4 p.m. ET on the SEC Network. The game’s time slot will stay the same, but the game will get an even wider audience as it moves to ESPN.

No. 4 FLORIDA AT No. 21 TEXAS A&M

The network for the Gators/Aggies game was originally a toss-up between ESPN and ESPNU. Now with the mother nature causing so many shifts, the game is now confirmed for noon on ESPN.

Oklahoma, Iowa State To Headline ESPN Networks’ College Football Broadcast Schedule This Weekend

Corutesy: ESPN

The Big 12 will take center stage Saturday night on ABC.

The Iowa State Cyclones will host the No. 18. Oklahoma Sooners on this week’s edition of Saturday Night Football presented by Capital One.  Sean McDonough, Todd Blackledge, Todd McShay, and Molly McGrath will have the call for the Samsung QLED 4K game of the week.

Each team comes into Saturday night’s Big 12 showdown with a 1-1 record overall.  By Comparison, Iowa State comes into the conference matchup with a 1-0 record while the Sooners are 0-1 in conference play.  That means Oklahoma will look to avoid dropping to 0-2 in conference play while the Cyclones will look to get above .500.

 

OKLAHOMA WEEK TWO

The visiting Sooners will come in to Saturday’s showdown on the heels of a 38-35 loss to Kansas State last Saturday.  The teams were relatively evenly matched over the course of the game.  Oklahoma outperformed Kansas St. in net rushing and passing yards, totaling 517 yards against Kansas State’s total of 400.

While the Sooners had more total yardage, Kansas St. averaged more yards per play than Oklahoma at 7.8 yards per play to Oklahoma’s 6.8 per play.  Kansas was better on fourth down efficiency at 2-2 while Oklahoma was better with third down conversions at 7-12 versus Kansas State’s total of 2-11.

Penalties were a problem for Kansas State.  The team racked up 13 penalties for a total of 108 yards while Oklahoma totaled 75 yards from 10 penalties.

Oklahoma additionally recorded three interceptions, versus none for Kansas St., certainly helping Kansas State in its win.

 

IOWA STATE WEEK TWO

Iowa State comes into Saturday’s game on the heels of a 37-34 victory over another of its Big 12 opponents, the TCU Horned Frogs in the second game of its season.  The Cyclones dominated on the ground with 212 rushing yards to TCU’s 99 while the Horned Frogs controlled the passing game, throwing for a net passing total of 400 versus 211 for Iowa State.

On a related note, Iowa State averaged a net gain of 8.3 yards per play throughout the game while TCU netted an average gain of 5.9 yards per play.  All things noted, TCU totaled more yardage throughout the game, with 499 yards while Iowa State had a total of 423, not much less than TCU.

TCU was 8-16 in third down conversion efficiency and 0-1 in fourth down conversion.  On the other side of the ball, Iowa Sate was 3-11 on third down conversion efficiency and 0-0 on fourth down conversions.

 

SATURDAY SCHEDULE

While the Big 12 will headline the ESPN networks’ Saturday’s day-long college football broadcast schedule, it is just one of the many games tapped for the networks’ weekend-long schedule.  Wake Forest will host Campbell in the weekend’s opener at 7 p.m. ET Friday on the ACC Network.  Louisiana Tech and No. 22 BYU follow at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

Saturday’s schedule launches at noon ET on ABC as No. 22 BYU hosts Louisiana Tech.  That broadcast will start following ESPN’s weekly college football program College GameDay Built by The Home Depot, which will air from 9 a.m. to noon ET on ESPN.  The traveling program’s broadcast site is under consideration.

South Florida and Cincinnati are scheduled to play at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN+ in a AAC conference matchup while Virginia Tech and Duke will hit the field at 4 p.m .ET on the ACC Network.

No. 1 Clemson hosts Virginia in the day’s final game.  Coverage of that game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET on the ACC Network.

ESPN Networks To Present Double Headliner Schedule Saturday Night

Courtesy: ESPN

The ESPN family of networks will round out Saturday’s college football broadcast schedule with a double headliner slate of games.

 

GAME ONE

The first game on Saturday’s special double headliner schedule is a matchup of Southeastern Conference foes No. 2 Alabama and unranked Missouri.  Coverage for the weekly broadcast is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.  The game is ESPN’s College Football Primetime Samsung QLED 4K Game of the Week.

Sean McDonough will have the call for Saturday night’s SEC showdown.  Todd Blackledge, Todd McShay, and Allison Williams will provide additional commentary and reports.

With this week being the SEC’s official return to play, each team comes into Saturday’s game looking to start the season with a win.

 

GAME TWO

The second of the day’s headlining games is an Atlantic Coast Conference matchup between the No. 12 Miami Hurricanes and unranked Florida State Seminoles.  Coverage of the Saturday Night Football presented by Capital One game is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.

Chris Fowler will have the call for the game.  Analyst Kirk Herbstreit will provide additional commentary.  Reporter Molly McGrath will have all of the game’s key headlines.

Miami come into Saturday night’s matchup on the heels of a 13-point win (47-34) over Louisville on Sept. 19 and a 17-point win (31-14) over the University of Alabama at Birmingham Sept. 10 in its first game of the season.

The Hurricanes outperformed the Blazers in almost every category in the teams’ Sept. 10 meeting, from first downs to average gain per play, to total yardage.  On the other hand, the Blazers recorded 205 passing yards in the game versus Miami’s total of 155 passing yards.

Louisville gave Miami a harder fight than UAB, performing almost as well as the Hurricanes from the first quarter to the last.  The Cardinals outdid the Hurricanes in Net  Rushing Yards, 209-160, but Miami’s Net Passing Yards total of 325 just barely beat Louisville’s total of 307.

In the battle of the QBs, Louisville went 16-36 in completions, outdoing Miami there, too, 18-30.  The Hurricanes also saw more impact in the penalties category than Louisville, racking up 11 penalties for a total of 89 yards.  Louisville, on the other hand, had seven penalties for a total of 70 yards.

Miami’s Third-Down efficiency rate of 6-13 outdid Louisville’s 4-14.  At the same time, Louisville was 3-4 in Fourth-Down efficiency.  Louisville also outdid Miami in total yardage, 516-485.

Florida State comes into Saturday night’s game hoping to rebound from a Week 1 loss to Georgia Tech.  The Seminoles lost the game 16-13.

Florida State struck early in the game, putting up 10 points in the first quarter, but the Yellow Jackets kept the Seminoles scoreless in the second and to only a field goal in the third quarter.  Georgia State meanwhile put up 16 points between the third and fourth quarters.

Georgia State outplayed Florida State through most of the team’s Sept. 12 game.  The Yellowjackets racked up a total of 438 yards versus Florida State’s 307 yards.  Georgia State totaled more passing yards than Florida State (277-198) and more rushing yards (161-109).  Even the two interceptions thrown by GT quarterback Jeff Simms weren’t enough to stop the Yellowjackets.

On the positive side for Florida State, Georgia State incurred more penalties and lost more yardage than Florida State throughout the game.  The Seminoles were charged with eight penalties for 55 yards while the Yellowjackets had a total of 10 penalties for a loss of 80 yards.

 

SATURDAY SCHEDULE

While Saturday night’s college football schedule will be busy, the two games on tap for the evening are not the only games scheduled to air on the ESPN networks.  Saturday’s schedule kicks off at noon ET on ABC — following ESPN’s weekly College GameDay Built by The Home Depot broadcast (9 a.m. to noon ET) — with East Carolina University hosting No. 13 UCF in an AAC matchup.

The previously scheduled game between No. 7 Notre Dame and Wake Forest, which was scheduled to air at noon on ABC, was postponed Tuesday due to concerns about COVID-19.

ESPN Offering Audiences Various Viewing Options For CFB Bowl Games Coverage

Courtesy: ESPN

The ESPN family of networks will carry extensive coverage of the College Football Playoff Semifinals today.

The double header schedule starts at 4 p.m. as the No. 1-ranked LSU Tigers take on No. 4 Oklahoma in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl.  No. 2 Ohio State faces off against No. 3 Clemson in the second game on the day, the Fiesta Bowl.  Broadcast for that game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m.

Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit will cover the Fiesta Bowl while Sean McDonough and Todd Blackledge will partner for coverage of the Peach Bowl.

Those who won’t be near a TV today can still catch each game online through ESPN Radio.  Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Todd McShay and Molly McGrath will cover the Peach Bowl.  The broadcast team of Sean Kelly, Barrett Jones and Ian Fitzsimmons will cover the Fiesta Bowl.

ESPN’s coverage of each game will feature a variety of camera angles, giving viewers the fullest possible picture of each down, run and throw.  Alternate presentation will be available on ESPNU, ESPNEWS and on the ESPN App.

Tom Luginbill and Louis Riddick will anchor the Peach Bowl broadcast on ESPNU.  The duo will follow the game in real time, breaking down each play as the game progresses.

ESPNEWS’ presentation will take viewers high above the field in each game.  Replays will be shown throughout the network’s coverage of each game.

The ESPN App’s All-22 coverage also takes viewers above the field in each game.  The perspective allows audiences to watch the games the same way in which players and coaches study games.

ESPN2 will also present its own unique presentation of the games, as will ESPN Goal Line.

The new angles and ways to watch are just part of what makes this year’s CFB playoffs coverage special for viewers.  This year marks the first time that the Allstate Sugar Bowl will be presented in full 4K.  The presentation will come through sponsorship by Samsung QLED.  it will be available to audiences who receive their 4K service through Altice, Comcast or DIRECTV.

The Peach Bowl and Fiesta Bowl are just two of the College Football bowl games that the ESPN networks will carry throughout the weekend.  ESPN will carry the Cotton Bowl starting at noon.  The Memphis Tigers and Penn State Nittany Lions will face off in that game.

The Florida Gators and Virginia Cavaliers will go toe-to-toe Dec. 30 in the Capital One Orange Bowl on ESPN.  Coverage is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. EST.

The Oregon Ducks and Wisconsin Badgers will take to the field Jan.1 in the Rose Bowl presented by Northwestern Mutual.  ESPN will cover that game, too, with the broadcast beginning at 5 p.m. EST.

The Allstate Sugar Bowl will air at 8:45 p.m. EST on Jan. 1 on ESPN.  No. 5 Georgia will take on No. 7 Baylor in that game.

The College Football Championship presented by AT&T will finish off the ESPN networks’ annual CFB coverage on Jan. 13.  The winners of today’s semifinals matchups will determine the teams for the CFB Championship game.
