ESPN didn't shell out north of $5 billion to merely air the College Football Playoffs on one channel. Nope, the network is once again going all-in with planned “MegaCasts” for each of the College Football Playoff games.
Fans tuning in for Saturday's Fiesta Bowl clash between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Clemson will have the following options:
ESPN The network's traditional broadcast called by Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit with more than 50 cameras inside the stadium, including AllCam, which captures the entire field at once, end zone pylon cams, and ReCam, a camera affixed to the bill of a referee's hat.
ESPN2 “Command Center” which brings multiple camera angles, statistics, real-time drive charts, and more.
ESPNU “Film Room” featuring Emmanuel Acho and Buckeye great Bobby Carpenter on the telestrator, breaking down game film in real-time.
ESPNEWS “Skycast” with views from above the action and behind the offense on most plays.
ESPN Goal Line “DataCenter” pairing the traditional broadcast with “real-time stats, analytics, social media commentary, and player information.”
ESPN App “All-22” giving you the ability to watch the game from the same angle coaches use to break down film.
The Buckeyes and Tigers meet at 8 p.m. Saturday at All State Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. Stick with Eleven Warriors all week for the most comprehensive Ohio State football coverage on the around.
