BCS National Championship Highlights Schedule of 30 Bowls

ESPN on ABC will offer extensive coverage of the Citi BCS National Championship Game from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. on Thursday, Jan. 7 on ABC. In addition to the National Championship, ABC will televise the Rose Bowl Game Presented by Citi Friday, Jan. 1. For the first time, ESPN will televise the Texas Bowl on Dec. 31 at 3:30 p.m.

Overall, ESPN will present 30 bowl games across ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Radio, ESPN360.com and ESPN Mobile TV. ESPN and ESPN2 will televise 24 bowl games, highlighted by Capital One Bowl Week, one of ESPN’s most-viewed weeks of the year, from Dec. 19 – Jan. 2. ESPN Radio will broadcast 19 bowl games, including all five BCS matchups. ESPNU, ESPN2 and ESPN will also offer extensive coverage of the NCAA playoff contests from the Championship Subdivision, Division II and Division III (Dec. 5-19).

Beginning next season, ESPN will televise all five games of the BCS – including the National Championship Game – as the result of an agreement with the BCS. It will include the Fiesta, Orange and Sugar Bowls each season and the BCS National Championship Game in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Through a separate agreement, ESPN will also televise the Rose Bowl Game beginning in 2011.

New Agreement with SEC

This year will mark the first of ESPN’s landmark 15-year agreement – the longest national rights agreement in ESPN history – with the SEC resulting in an ESPN entity televising every conference home football game (excluding those on the network broadcast package).

ESPN and ESPN2 will televise an extensive schedule of 20 games annually, ESPNU will add an exclusive package of SEC football for the first time, including a Saturday game of the week (generally in primetime); ESPN Regional Television will become the official over-the-air syndication home for the SEC and feature a game of the week; ESPN360.com and ESPN Mobile TV will provide live national simulcasts; and ESPN GamePlan, ESPN’s out-of-market college football pay-per-view service, will offer SEC action outside the local territory from the syndicated and regional cable packages.

Weekly Windows

The networks will offer an extensive schedule of games each Saturday as well as matchups every Thursday and Friday and on select Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays. Highlights include:

· ESPN on ABC: ESPN on ABC’s Saturday Night Football Presented by Southwest Airlines, broadcast television’s first-ever weekly college football primetime series, will highlight the network’s 44th season of college football coverage with showdowns between top programs every Saturday at 8 p.m. (except Sept. 12 and Oct. 17). The series will kickoff with Alabama vs. Virginia Tech in a showdown of top power programs from Atlanta, Ga. September 5. In addition to Saturday Night Football, ABC will continue to broadcast top matchups every Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and select Saturdays at noon involving teams from the Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10, ACC and BIG EAST.

Last year’s Saturday night series -- the highest rated and most-viewed college football window on television – averaged a 4.9 rating, 5,651,000 households and 8,001,000 total viewers for increases of 20 percent (vs. 4.1), 22 percent (vs. 4,644,000) and 24 percent (vs. 6,442,000) over the previous year.

· Saturdays on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU: ESPNU’s Saturday schedule will be highlighted by an exclusive SEC primetime game for the first time (generally at 7 p.m.). On most Saturdays, ESPN will offer a noon and 7:45 p.m. game, ESPN2 a noon and 7 p.m. telecast, and a “reverse mirror” (see below) of ABC’s 3:30 p.m. split national broadcast on ESPN or ESPN2, while ESPNU will offer four telecasts generally at noon, 3:30 p.m., 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

· Weekdays: In addition to a weekly Friday primetime series on ESPN or ESPN2, the networks will offer games on select Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays throughout the season.

· “Reverse Mirrors”: As many as 11 Saturday afternoon windows will feature ABC’s split national telecasts offered regionally on ESPN or ESPN2 and ESPN360.com to markets that are getting another game on ABC.

Thursday Night Firsts

ESPN’s highly-rated Thursday night series will originate from two new venues this year: the University of North Carolina (vs. Florida State, Oct. 22) and Oregon (vs. Oregon State in the annual Civil War Game, Dec. 3). The three Big 12 home games will mark the most for the conference on an ESPN Thursday night telecast in a season and the first for Missouri since 1992 and Oklahoma State since 1996.

In addition to ESPN, ESPNU will air a weekly Thursday night game. Both will generally begin at 7:30 p.m. For the second consecutive year, every ESPN telecast will feature a team from one of the six BCS automatic qualifying conferences. The schedule will be highlighted by a season-opening doubleheader pitting South Carolina at N.C. State followed by Oregon at Boise State (Sept. 3); Ole Miss, the only team to defeat eventual National Champion Florida last year, at South Carolina (Sept. 24); and Texas at Texas A&M on Thanksgiving for the second straight year (Nov. 26).
